Ethan Iverson, a pianist and New York jazz veteran who leads a trio with bassist David Williams and drummer Victor Lewis. Aldana is an arresting vocalist; with her interpretive skills coupled with the Iverson outfit’s swinging rhythm, Monk’s music is sure to take flight. —DK [DURHAM FRUIT & PRODUCE COMPANY, $10–$25/7 & 9 P.M.] ALSO ON MONDAY

TUE, OCT 24 Ted Leo and the Pharmacists As frontman for the WHAT AILS YA great, long-running Pharmacists and one half of the beguiling electric-folk duo The Both, Ted Leo is one of the mineral elements in contemporary rock, a true lifer who has somehow lived to tell you about it. His recently released LP, The Hanged Man, is a remarkable career culmination, wedding his instinct for Clash-like urgency with a witty and sad worldview. —EB [CAT’S CRADLE, $16–$18/8 P.M.]

Michael McDonald SMOOTH A one-time a DUDE member of Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers—and, more recently, a collaborator with Thundercat and Grizzly Bear—this smoothsinging blue-eyed-soul maven boasts one of the most fascinating careers in modern music. Through it all, the constant remains McDonald’s uncannily recognizable and raspy tenor, the engine room for such classics as “What a Fool Believes,” “I Keep Forgetting,” and the Patti Labelle duet “On My Own.” Marc Cohn opens. —EB [DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, $45–$210/7:30 P.M.]

Toadies POSSUM Austin’s Toadies KINGS found commercial

success in the nineties, when its particular brand of bare-bones, confessional rock dovetailed conveniently with the grunge panic that followed Nirvana and eventually metastasized into Weezer’s extended adolescence. Toadies still sound like both bands at times, which, depending on your point of view, is either a recommendation or a warning. Local H opens. —TB [MOTORCO, $25/8:30 P.M.] ALSO ON TUESDAY ARCANA: Sister, Brother; 9 p.m., free. • DURHAM FRUIT COMPANY: Ethan Iverson Trio with Chris Potter & Houston Person; 7 & 9 p.m., $10–$25. • LOCAL 506: A Wilhelm Scream, Such Gold, After the Fall, We Were Sharks; 7:30 p.m., $15–$18. • NEPTUNES PARLOUR: Pop Empire, Thick Modine; 10 p.m., $5. • THE PINHOOK: She Keeps Bees; 9 p.m., $8. • POUR HOUSE: Black Pistol Fire, Blackfoot Gypsies; 9 p.m. • RUBY DELUXE: Experimental Tuesday: Speedating x DJ Pothole; 10 p.m. • SHARP NINE GALLERY: NCJRO; 8 p.m., $10–$20. • SLIM’S: Truth Club, Peaer, Sinai Vessel (Solo); 9 p.m., $5.

WED, OCT 25 Good Music Fest EAGLES Kicking off NCCU’s NEST homecoming weekend, local promotion company First Class Lifestyle brings a lineup of North Carolina-based artists who might be unfamiliar if you’re used to hip-hop events hosted by curators like Mir.I.Am and Crystal Taylor. The exception is DJ Fannie Mae, who’s always a crowd-pleaser when she’s behind the turntables. Come for the reunion, stay for the d.j., but you won’t miss much if you skip this one. —CM [THE PINHOOK, $10/6 P.M.]

Las Rosas Garage psych trio FUZZ FRIENDS Las Rosas hails from Brooklyn but is easily traced to the Triangle. The band recorded its excellent debut record, Everyone Gets Exactly What They Want, in North Carolina under the guidance of local producer Missy Thangs. It’s overstuffed with bomb-shrapnel hooks and tense refrains, meaning it’s a lot of fun to listen to. With 300 Dog Night. —DS [NEPTUNES PARLOUR, $7/10 P.M.]

Microwave Microwave insists WOE IS ME upon its sadness, but the fact that it’s making songs about it suggests a refusal to succumb. Singer Nathan Hardy sings lines like, “I gave up on love ’cause I’m too apathetic,” “I’m far too cynical for faith,” and “forget it I’m fine,” crafting a woeful, detached persona. Contrasting such self-effacing lyrics, however, are the huge guitars, bass, and drums that prop them up, transforming the tracks into self-propelling chants. With Big Jesus and Blis. —NR [LOCAL 506, $12–$15/8 P.M.]

Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band A gifted singerLIT SONGS songwriter whose talents skew literary, Josh Ritter recalls Bruce Springsteen both in his devotion to an earnest persona and his contrarian impulse to puncture it. While his trad rock can be classicrock-devotional to the point of becoming quotidian, there is something oddly desperate in laments like “When Will I Be Changed,” which suggests a troubled soul worth saving. Good Old War Opens. —TB [CAT’S CRADLE, $27.50–$129/8 P.M.]

András Schiff Wordsworth was PIANO MASTER once quoted as saying, “Big things happen to everybody—it’s the finer details that make the difference.” So, after two years working with largescale sonatas, knighted pianist András Schiff is spending time with more minimal pieces by Mendelssohn, Brahms, and Bach. The intricacies of music via melodic dialogues that push the limits of compositional form showcase both the idea and its execution. —KH [UNC’S MEMORIAL HALL, $25–$109/7:30 P.M.] ALSO ON WEDNESDAY CAT’S CRADLE (BACK ROOM): The Alternate Routes & Nick Fradiani; 8 p.m., $12–$15. • THE CAVE: Zensofly; 9 p.m., $5. • DURHAM FRUIT COMPANY: Ethan Iverson Trio and Joshua Redman; 7 & 9 p.m., $10–$25. • NIGHTLIGHT: 919Noise Showcase; 8:30 p.m. • POUR HOUSE: Aqueous, Electric Love Machine; 9 p.m., $10–$12. • RUBY DELUXE: BPM Deluxe: 160 Curated by CALAPSE; 10 p.m.
