Mayer Hawthorne 
On its surface, this Michigan-born singer’s newest album Man About Town (released in April) is a kitschy parody of ’90s funk, soul, and hip-hop. But the pop artist’s invocation of classic Motown sound belies serious musical talent that first emerged when his father taught him to play guitar at five years old. Fri 9 p.m.
