Urban Acrobats: Traces, a show that combines "traditional acrobatic forms with street elements such as skateboarding and basketball" kicks off a two-week run at the Belding Theater at The Bushnell tonight. It's the Connecticut debut for Traces, which was created by Quebec's respected performance group, 7 Fingers. Prince William and Kate Middleton caught their act during a trip to the States and you can check out their performance on America's Got Talent here. Tickets are $50. 7:30 p.m.
Warped Tour Vets: Central Oregon's Larry and His Flask bring their punk-infused bluegrass to the Underground Stage at The Webster. The six-piece gained notoriety while opening for the Dropkick Murphys and is paced by Jesse Marshall's energetic stand-up bass. Maryland-based funk/reggae quartet Lionize is co-headlining. Openers include Hookers and Sinkers, Pickpocket and Living Americans. Tickets are $10. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
West Coast Kingpin: Dom Kennedy, a rising indie rapper from Leimart Park, Los Angeles, headlines a deep bill at Toad's Place. Over the past few years, Kennedy has dropped a handful of well-received mixtapes and has impressed fans with his bravado-drenched stage act. Dom Kennedy is somewhat of a breakout star on the West Coast and throughout the South, so it will be interesting to see how he draws in New Haven. J.R., Jitta on the Track, T.G.I.F., Al-Fatir, Young Blayze and Vandaliss open. Tickets are $20. 9 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.
