Nightlife Highlights: Allison Miller and Boom Tic Boom

May 7. One of today's top drummers, the mind-blowing Allison Miller mainly operates in the jazz field, playing with Dr. Lonnie Smith, Mike Stern, and John Medeski, but she's also worked with pop folk artists like Ani DiFranco, Natalie Merchant, and the Indigo Girls; you may have even seen her sitting in with the 8G Band on "Late Night with Seth Myers" last August. Miller's own band, Boom Tic Boom, is likewise exceptional, featuring violinist Jenny Scheinman, bassist Todd Sickafoose, pianist Myra Melford, cornetist Kurt Knuffke, and clarinetist Ben Goldberg. In support of her third and newest album, Otis Was a Polar Bear, the percussionist brings her group to Mass MoCA for this swinging May hit. (Performance artwork "Project Situ: The Round" occurs May 19 and 20.) 8pm. $16, $22, $28 ($10 students). North Adams, Massachusetts. (413) 662-2111.
