Nightlife Highlights: Roger McGuinn 

September 9. In the mid 1960s the Byrds, led by singer and guitarist Roger McGuinn, whohere lands once again at the Egg, blended the sounds of the Beatles and Bob Dylan to become the leading architects of folk rock—and even ended up influencing the Fabs and the Bard, themselves. By adding elements of Eastern music, avant jazz, and electronic experimentalism to their lush vocal harmonies and ringing guitars, the Byrds also helped forge psychedelia and paved the runway for Tom Petty, R.E.M., and anyone else who’s ever plugged in an electric 12-string. (James Farm, featuring Joshua Redman, jazzes it up September 22; original “Rent” cast members Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp perform September 24.) 8pm. $29.50. Albany. (518) 473-1845;

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.
