Black Violin

May 9. Florida’s Black Violin, which visits the Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School Theater this month, harbors “influences ranging from Shostakovich and Bach to Nas and Jay-Z.” Backed by a live DJ, the duo of violist Wil B and violinist Kev Marcus fuses classical, jazz, and hip-hop with a flair that’s seen them open for Wu-Tang Clan, Akon, and Fat Joe, and collaborate with Alicia Keys, P.Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, and the Eagles. (London’s Tall Stories Theatre Company presents “Room on the Broom” May 28.) 7pm. $10, $15. Hudson. (518) 822-1438; www.hudsonoperahouse.org.
