Marcia Ball’s Pianorama at Antone’s.
Antone’s 35th anniversary rolls on with she of the velvet voice and the piano chops to die for, but master of ceremonies Ball isn’t going it alone — for this show, she’s roped in four of Antone’s best longtime players in Double Trouble’s Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon, as well as Derek O’Brien and Denny Freeman. Expect a ready supply of blues grooves that, paradoxically, will doubtless leave you feeling quite good about life. 8 p.m. $12. 213 W. Fifth St. www.antones.net. — P.C.
