Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge 

When: Tue., Oct. 21, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $26-$50
Some of the best-tasting cocktails cause you to furrow your brow when reading their contents on the menu. The same might happen with the mix of modern jazz, new music and bluegrass promised by guitarists Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, but they balance the ingredients well. The pair's new album, Avalon, crosses original instrumentals with earnest, rollicking takes on tunes from every chapter of the Great American Songbook. The jaw-dropping Eldridge, of the revered Punch Brothers, can fingerpick an acoustic guitar like it's a banjo. Lage comes to Durham after a six-day residency at The Stone, the East Village harbor of jazz experimentalist and saxophonist John Zorn. He's been playing with monsters like pianist Fred Hersch, drummer Kenny Wolleson and Zorn himself. Expect improvisational folk with a virtuosic twist. 8 p.m., $28–$50, 309 W. Morgan St., 919-506-3030, carolinatheatre.org. —Chris Vitiello
