—Saturday, February 15: Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys. Ms. Klein probably should have been born at the beginning of the 20th century, when the “obscure, naughty and lovely” songs she sings were popular. It’s the era to which she feels most drawn, and whose spirit and style she so successfully recreates with her music. The LA-based singer records and performs a vast repertoire of long-forgotten material–songs from the 1910s, ‘20s and ’30s that few people even know exist. $17. 7:30 p.m.

He has performed for some 53 years on this ancient eleven stringed Persian fretless instrument that dates back some 2000 years. John Bilezikjian’s virtuosity and versatility as a performer and composer can be heard on such motion picture soundtracks as the academy award winning Schindler’s List, and on recordings by Robert Palmer, Leonard Cohen, Ofra Haza, and countless others. $15. 7:30 p.m.
