TROMBONER—The high-energy, party-hearty live shows of Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue are something of legend—and not only in the musically rich Treme neighborhood of New Orleans. So clear your evening schedule: Shorty's foot-stompin', bottom-shakin' mix of funk, jazz, rock, soul, and a demolition team of horns could happily go on for hours. WSH
w/Los Amigos Invisibles; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 9 pm, $18

—Forget a barn raising, a Portland-style farm social means beer and schmoozing with callous-handed locals who know their way around a turnip field. This month's InFARMation includes all that, plus a talk about food politics statewide this year. Dig in. SM
