9/8: Crowes, Chi and Rock

LET ME LIGHT YOUR CANDLE:  It's been nearly 20 years, and still the Black Crowes remain at the top of the heap when it comes to bluesy rock 'n' roll.  They bring their electric stage show to the Klein Memorial Auditorium in Bridgeport tonight.  And if that's not enough, this is the same week they release their eighth studio album, "Before the Frost...," recorded over five nights in Woodstock, NY.  But fear not, the two-hour set is sure to include plenty of your old favorites too.  Tickets are $44.50-$49.50.  8pm.

FIND YOUR CHI:  We always like to give you events that stimulate your senses, from your taste buds to your ear drums.  But tonight, we're going for the inner senses.  A special six-class series kicks off at the New Haven Public Library, exploring the ancient art of tai chi.  Beginners will be instructed on the martial art that's performed for health and relaxation reasons.  Registration is requested.  The class is every Tuesday through Oct. 13 from 5:30-6:30pm. 

HIT THE FLOOR:  Perhaps the peace and tranquility of tai chi isn't your thing.  Well, have we got the thing for you.  Hard rockers Drowning Pool are taking over the Webster Theatre in Hartford.  The band boasts one of the most memorable songs of the past decade with "Bodies" (just listen, and you'll remember).  But they've also had their share of hardship, with three different lead singers during their run (including the death of the original front man in 2002).  The band has stuck together, and are beginning a string of headline shows in Hartford.  Tickets are just $15.  7pm.
