1) Talented singer/songwriters Lyle Lovett and Shawn Colvin are in concert together at the Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland. Lovett crafts colorful songs, which tell compelling tales by fusing together many different musical genres, including country, swing, and jazz. He also has won four Grammy Awards: three in country categories and one in pop. Lovett attended Texas A&M University, where he met and befriended Robert Earl Keen, another accomplished Texan musician. Lovett released his self-titled debut album in 1986. His latest is 2012’s Release Me. Colvin is best known for her 1997 Grammy-winning single “Sunny Came Home,” from 1996’s A Few Small Repairs. The album was recently reissued for its 20th anniversary with bonus live tracks, liner notes, and more. Her latest release is this year’s The Starlighter, which adapts songs from Lullabies and Night Songs, a children’s music book written by composer Alec Wilder and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Should be an evening of great songs and stories. 8 p.m. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland. (RH, CM)
