Clem Snide, led by singer/songwriter Eef Barzelay, plays at TOURISTS Lodge's Sing for Your Slumber series, 8 to 10 p.m. According to Tourists, "The road to 'Forever Just Beyond,' Barzelay's stunning new album (out March 27) under the Clem Snide moniker, was an unlikely one, to say the least. Produced by Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers, the record is a work of exquisite beauty and profound questioning... The songs here grapple with hope and depression, identity and perception, God and the afterlife, all captured through Barzelay's uniquely off-kilter lens." Admission is free; free-will donations go directly to the artist. Space is limited, so go early for cocktails and good seats.
If live-action is more of your thing, get ringside with Truly Independent Wrestling's "February Fallout." Wrestlers take the ring starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club of The Berkshires, 16 Melville St., Pittsfield. Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children aged 6-12, kids ages 5 and under are free. Boys & Girls Club Members are free with proof of membership.
