There are more boss concerts coming up than you can shake a stick at. We took a stab at it anyway. But what about the stuff there just wasn't enough dead tree space to explore? Of primary importance is the 42nd Annual John Donald Robb Composers' Symposium, which happens Sunday, March 24, through Wednesday, March 27. Celebrating the centenary of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, special guest composers and performers include wireless controller-obsessed Duo X, Italian pianist Emanuele Arciuli and local Sunday favorites Chatter, and they're demoing Robb's Moog Synthesizer this year. For the full schedule, visit the trust's site: robbtrust.org

But experimental and classical composition isn't all our fair city has on offer this week. Whether you're into hip-hop, horrorcore, pornocore, strings, Zimbabwean spirituals or songs written by women, Music to Your Ears has you covered. Peep related A/V below.

Music

Thumb Piano Extravaganza

If you’ve never been, Ezra’s Place is the absurdly delicious, Dennis Apodaca joint (see Sophia’s Place) inside of Lucky 66 Bowl on Fourth Street. A trip to Ezra’s is well worth it just for the gourmet diner fare and interesting atmosphere, but tonight there’s an even bigger incentive to stop by. Musekiwa Chingodza and Cosmas Magaya, Zimbabwean masters of the mbira—that’s a thumb piano to folks who can’t pronounce mbira—will be performing from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The duo plays for tips tonight before heading up north for other events. Admission is free, but you’d be a fool not to fork over some cash for a Kobe burger and prickly pear margarita (and tip the musicians).
