Morgan Sate University's theater department presents a production of August Wilson's Jitney at the Murphy Fine Arts Center this weekend. And the weekend-long Winter Festival of Wonders kicks off tonight at Station North's Area 405 with a Wizards Ball. The wearing of costumes is encouraged.
It'd also be a good weekend to frequent the Windup Space. Tonight, Lo Moda celebrates the release of a new CD. Tomorrow, members of Lower Dens, Wye Oak, and other indie bands play favorite love songs that encourage slow dancing. There's a buzz about saxophonist Darius Jones, and he's playing the club on Sunday backed by an all-star group that includes pianist Lafayette Gilchrist, bassist Mike Formanek, drummer Eric Kennedy, and saxophonist John Dierker. Wow.
