Set List



Chick Corea at the Modlin Center

To lots of jazz fans, Chick Corea embodies the artistic goal of jazz: inspiration, improvisation and reinvention, all of which he's done for 40 years now, from a humble start playing piano for Miles Davis. He's tinkered pretty heavily with Latin elements throughout the years, which now find expression in his current band, Touchstone, a blend of Brazilian jazz and Afro-Cuban beats. Chick returns to Richmond after two decades to play two shows Feb. 28, 7:30 and 10 p.m. $32. 289-8980.

The Briggs, The Dead Pets and Bloody Crackdown at Nanci Raygun

Warped Tour street punks The Briggs come to the Nanci Raygun with sneering Brits The Dead Pets, promising drunkenness in every city they visit. Rounding out the adrenaline surge is Richmond militants Bloody Crackdown, Feb. 22 at 5 p.m. $10. 353-4263.

Hot Apple Pie at the Canal Club

While it sounds more like a paperback someone reads on a beach than a country-rock band, Hot Apple Pie is nevertheless on the rise with good-natured hell-raising and flat-picking. They play along with locals Robbin Thompson and the Marna Bales Band to raise money for the Jessica Beck Memorial Scholarship Fund, Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. $15-$20. 643-2582.

The Jim Payne Band at Fusion

Tucking into the space at Fusion Feb. 23 is Jim Payne, producer and drummer for the likes of funk artisans James Brown and Medeski, Martin and Wood. He kick-starts his percussion-driven band at 9 p.m. $7. 249-2338.

Emily Easterly at Poe's Pub

Former Richmond singer-songwriter Easterly recorded her latest album, "Seasons Never Change," about her four years living in Miami. But where there might be thongs and wax jobs, there's instead a soft, brooding voice and a guitar set on simmer. She plays Poe's Feb. 24 at 9:30 p.m. $5.
