JOYCE BROOKSHIRE -- A living, singing repository of Cabbagetown history, Joyce Brookshire was born there, worked there and has for decades shared her stories through music. Tonight's "Celebration of Joyce Brookshire's Cabbagetown" features Brookshire accompanied by Elise Witt and members of Blueground Undergrass, as well as art displays and stories by Gene Gabriel Moore. 7 Stages (Sarig)

JIMMY BUFFET -- Love him or hate him (and there doesn't seem to be much middle ground on the issue), Buffet has transcended mere stardom to achieve popular cultdom. His fans' devotion is absolute, oblivious to the fact that he's been making the same album over and over for years now. No doubt Jimmy delivers on stage, and to criticize such intentions feels too much like raining on someone else's parade. To each his own, then. Philips Arena (Robertson)

JAZZ MANDOLIN PROJECT -- Mandolinist Jamie Masefield continues to assemble top-rate combos -- this time he brings with him Phish drummer Jon Fishman. This won't necessarily make it a better show, but it won't hurt. The name of the game here is improvisation and JMP have a nice way of nailing it all together. Variety Playhouse (Prusin)

EAGLE-EYE CHERRY, LEONA NAESS -- See Eagle-Eye Cherry in Record Reviews, p. 107. Leona Naess' debut album, Comatised, was rightly welcomed by critics -- it's raw, poignant and personal, unlike the vapid squawk of so many singer-songwriters. Constant touring gained Naess a measure of public support as well. Now comes the crucial follow-up, I Tried to Rock You But You Only Roll, and the prerequisite opening slot in someone else's road show. Arrive in time to see her. Cotton Club (Madigan)

TRACY + THE PLASTICS, ELECTROSLEEP INTERNATIONAL -- As much about performance as music, jumpy Tracy performs with her two-dimensional sidekicks that exist only as flickers of light from a video projector. Her offbeat tunes betray a modern, fearless independence filtered through '80s analog technology. When in their element (i.e. some filthy living room) locals Electrosleep International are completely gonzo. They just need to learn to bring that vibe up onto a stage and all will be good. Eyedrum (Foy)
