Incubus Resurfaces, Plays Mohegan

Pardon Me: Once-mighty alt-rockers Incubus bring their comeback tour to Mohegan Sun Arena. In July, the Cali-based quintet released their first studio effort in five years, If Not Now, When? Reception has been mixed: The album sold a respectable 80,000 copies in its first week of release, but was given a middling 6/10 rating by SPIN and 2.5 stars from Rolling Stone. Regardless, Incubus has always been able to draw large, mostly female crowds who still want to see charismatic frontman Brandon Boyd belt out past hits like "Drive" and "Pardon Me." Watch the band perform their new single "Adolescents" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a preview. Young the Giant opens. Tickets are $59.20. 7:30 p.m.

Complimentary Concert: Songwriter Dean Wells and his five-piece The Captan Shafts are playing a free show at BAR. The group released Kind Empires in July and, like most of Wells' prior work, it's full of short, catchy, stripped-down rock tracks. Check out the lead single "Degenerate Era Heroes" here. New Jersey indie rockers Goodman Brown open. No cover. 9 p.m.

Traditional Tunes: Finnish-American folk duo Kaivama are playing an early show at Cafe Nine in New Haven. Most of their music is instrumental, with Sara Pajunen leading on violin and talented multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Rundman keeping pace on piano. Cover is $8. 8 p.m.

Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck every afternoon by peeping Play's Dance Card.
