Support wildlife preservation efforts while downing a couple cans of Infinite Monkey Theorem wine (did you know cans require less energy to recycle than bottles?) and bidding on pieces of contemporary art created by Ugandan, Congolese, and Vietnamese artists. Proceeds benefit the New Nature Foundation, a nonprofit that protects wild animals and places while empowering indiginous people. Tue 6-10 p.m.

This chamber pop-rock troupe came to prominence in 2011, after winning a nationwide battle of the bands competition in its native Iceland. Drawing comparisons to Arcade Fire and Imagine Dragons, the band creates indie rock with a flair for tight compositions and cinematic performance.  The group’s second album, Beneath the Skin, was released this past June. Tue 7 p.m.

This Broadway play starring Idina Menzel (famous for her roles in Rent, Wicked, and Frozen) follows the life of 38-year-old Elizabeth, who is undergoing a severe mid-life crisis. She moves to New York City where one new friend encourages her to embrace “Liz,” a woman in search of true love, while another suggests she embody “Beth,” a professional who networks with ease.

Gregg Allman

The Allman Brothers Band broke up this past October after a 45-year run, leaving lead singer and organist Gregg Allman free to pursue his solo career full time. Allman’s most recent album—the live CD and DVD Back to Macon, GA, released in August—is a testament to his status as a blues and rock ’n’ roll legend. Live, Allman performs with an eight-piece band, playing a mix of covers, Allman Brothers tunes, and originals. Tue-Wed 8 p.m.
