Incoming! !!! + Who Cares 4/12

I’m not even sure why we’re listing this show since it was probably sold out before the promoter even had the idea of setting up the show. That said, due diligence requires that we, the media elite, inform readership (heretofore referred to as “you”) that the dudes from !!! will be playing a hometown show at the Townhouse. And tix are $7 (that alone is worth the three exclamation points!!!). Check here for tickets: but we’re not promising anything. -TF

Incoming! Jewish Voices: Songs from the Old World, Tunes from the New -Rebecca Plack 4/10

Local soprano Rebecca Plack, accompanied by Greg Mason on piano, will be performing classical, opera, traditional folk songs, and Broadway show tunes in this special performance of original songs by Jewish performers and composers. The first half of the show highlights songs from Jewish musicians in Austria and Germany before WWII, including Gustav Mahler and Lotte Schöne, who was the reigning diva of the Berlin State Opera, until she was forced by the Nazis to flee. The concert’s second half features the works of Jewish lyricists and composers who emigrated to America and Israel, such as George Gershwin and Dorothy Fields, and concludes with Hebrew and Yiddish songs that have become well-known in the American Jewish community today. Tickets can be purchased by visiting, and more information can be found by calling (916) 641-0306. -TM
