Jason Dove

The lowdown -- Local musician Jason Dove has been taking time off from live playing to record what he is calling "a conceptual album." He is playing with the Magic Whip at the Talking Head Club tomorrow in an effort to reconnect with fans and show his folk side. Several folk-style rockers will open the show.

If you go -- The Talking Head is at 203 Davis St. Doors open at 9:30 p.m., and the show starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $8. Call 410-962-5588 or visit talk ingheadclub.com.

School of Rock

The lowdown -- The Paul Green School of Rock has been giving teens the gift of rock since its founding in Philadelphia in 1998. A group of students, known as the School of Rock All-Stars, are now giving that gift back to audiences around the county. The 11- to 17-year-old prodigies bring their show of classic rock covers to the 8x10 in Federal Hill tonight.

If you go -- The 8x10 is at 10 E. Cross St. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12. Call 410-625-2000 or visit the8x10.com.

Jurassic 5

The lowdown -- It's no wonder Jurassic 5 plays outside the hip-hop circuit a lot. With four MCs trading off, harmonizing with each other in choruses, social commentary in their lyrics and performances featuring a live band rather than pre-recorded beats, it's easy to see why they've graced the stage at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, the Warped Tour and the Reading Festival. The group performs Monday at Washington's 9:30 Club.

If you go -- The 9:30 Club is at 815 V St. N.W., Washington. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $25. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com.
