looking for fall 2012, pt. 1

As we enter the home stretch of a week where temps may well hit the 100 degree mark, The Musical Box would like propose that, no, is not too early to start looking to fall.

Of course, the fact that two fine concert picks have just been confirmed for September and October only add to the anticipation of what is shaping up to be a very cool autumn.

First up is an addition to the Singletary Center for the Arts’ upcoming season, which in itself is news since the schedule was only announced last week. The update: Andrew Bird will perform his first Lexington concert in over eight years at the Singletary on Sept. 29 (7:30 p.m.; $25, $30, $35).

The multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter was a club regular at now-defunct venues like The Dame, Lynagh’s Music Club and High on Rose over the past 15 years. Of late however, his multi-stylistic folk and pop tunes – not to mention wonderfully atmospheric albums like the new Break It Yourself – have gained international followings.

Advance tickets are already available for the Bird show and the good Singletary folks are allowing us to share the pre-sales password (SCFA, all upper case) with you. Click here for more info.

Then we have a real shocker from Natasha’s, 112 Esplanade. The bistro’s website lists an Oct. 7 performance by Jorma Kaukonen, the extraordinary blues and roots music guitarist.

A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his co-founding role in the landmark psychedelic band Jefferson Airplane, Kaukonen still maintains co-piloting duties with fellow Airplane alum Jack Casady in Hot Tuna as well as a healthy solo career. He has played Lexington before, mostly through WoodSongs appearances. But a full up-close Sunday evening with Jorma is a true rarity (8 p.m., $35).
