April 16. On the street of his home town of Troy last fall, performance artist and musician Jason Martin was robbed and beaten so brutally that he needed costly surgery to repair a broken jaw and to implant titanium plates in his head. But with the help of a GoFundMe campaign and a successful benefit event, Martin, known for the bizarre, transgender wolf guise he calls Power Animal System—no wonder Lady Gaga is among his fans—has bounced back in a big way. This show at the Low Beat celebrates the release of his new album, Methods. (Creed Bratton croons April 15; 7Horse gallops in April 17.) 8pm. Call for ticket price. Albany. (518) 432-6572;

  • Jason Martin plays at the Low Beat in Albany on April 16.

  • Bobby Previte's Lasting Impact

    Bobby Previte is equally revered for his magical skills as a musician and the constantly surprising works he produces as a composer of ensemble, film, dance, and theatrical scores. A list of the names who've drawn on his talents stretches from John Adams to John Zorn. Over his nearly four-decade professional career, his innovative rhythms, bold arrangements, and deep aural palette have crossed and re-crossed the boundaries between jazz, classical, avant-garde, R&B, straight-up rock, and electronic music.
