Fri 6/19
Black Violin

With one of the most satisfyingly blunt names in all of music, the Floridian duo of Wil Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester are Black Violin. And it’s true: Both classically schooled gentlemen are black and gifted string instrumentalists. And both men will be at the Tobin on Friday, with band, treating fans and initiates alike to a high-octane show that deftly melds influences as far-flung as hip-hop, bluegrass, R&B, funk, rock, jazz and classical. For a pre-show primer, dig the duo’s 2013 tour de force, the full-to-bursting Classically Trained. $14.50-$29.50, 8pm Fri, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org. — James Courtney
