Cover540Very alternative. While the rest of us will be tuning in for the Patriots-Giants rematch, the Harvard Square folk landmark will feature Grammy-nominated producer/performer Nicolay and "exploratory jazz" trio The Hot at Nights performing the music from their recent "Shibuya Session" EP, which you can hear here. Nicolay is an electronica producer best known as half of The Foreign Exchange with rapper Phonte. North Carolina's The Hot at Nights feature 8-string guitar virtuoso Chris Boerner, with Matt Douglas on sax/woodwinds and Nick Baglio on drums. The EP features new versions of tracks from Nicolay's 2009 album "City Lights Vol. 2: Shibuya." It's pretty mellow, decidedly unlike Vince Wilfork slamming Eli Manning to the ground.The gig is scheduled for 8:00 pm, by which time I hope Wilfork will have done that at least twice, at Club Passim, 47 Palmer Street, Cambridge. Tix: $13 for Passim members, and $15 for non-members, at: www.passim.org or (617) 492-7679.
