Colin Hay 8:00 pm, Center for the Arts, 72 S. Main St., Homer. Colin Hay is familiar to millions as the frontman, songwriter, and vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Overkill,” “Who Can it Be Now?”). Hay is justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 critically-acclaimed solo albums, including the highly successful Man at Work, and has recently announced the release of his new album Next Year People on Compass Records. The frequent use of Hay’s music in TV and film— including hit shows such as Scrubs (on which he has made several cameo appearances), Army Wives, and Modern Family, the hit soundtrack to the film Garden State and the recently released Words and Pictures—has proven the timeless appeal of his songs. General admission $40, Senior $38, Students $35, military and children under 18 free. For more information call (607) 749-4900, or visit www.center4art.org.

Branford Marsalis and Kurt Elling Doors open at 6:30 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm, State Theatre of Ithaca. The Branford Marsalis Quartet will be joined by guest-vocalist Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces. The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, and Elling’s deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility, and outstanding intonation will enable the band to perform a variety of material in new ways. Tickets: $45.00 - $150.00. For more information call (607) 277-8283 or visit www.stateofithaca.com.
