Guru's Jazzmatazz
  • Guru's Jazzmatazz

CAT'S CRADLE—Fresh off the release of the fourth volume of his Jazzmatazz series, longtime Gang Starr emcee Guru continues to blend elements of jazz (he describes this as nü-jazz, which is sort of frightening, right?) with his smooth, confident, socially strident verse and nodding beats. The results of Jazzmatazz on tape have always been mixed, and this entry is no exception. But live tonight—with a band and the guidance of Superproducer Solar—expect Guru to be exceptionally good. Beetnix and Edgar Allen Flow open at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $17-$20. —Grayson Currin

KENNEDY THEATRE—Five bridesmaids spend an evening hiding from the wedding events in an upstairs bedroom in this hilarious play by Alan Ball. The writer of American Beauty and creator of HBO's Six Feet Under brings together an improbable assemblage of diverse personalities, including a conservative, a lesbian, a rebel, a divorcee and a cynic, who discover a common bond. The play opens tonight under the direction of Gulf Shore Playhouse's Kristen Coury; tickets are $27.50 and available at —Sarah Lupton
