Seu Jorge at Texas Theatre
Nearly a dozen years have passed since Brazilian musician Seu Jorge first burst into the American consciousness with his lilting, delicate covers of David Bowie classics sung entirely in Portuguese. Released in 2005 as The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions, Bowie himself praised Jorge’s sensitive recasting of his work: “Had [Jorge] not recorded my songs acoustically in Portuguese, I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with,” the superstar wrote in Sessions’ liner notes. Jorge’s performance is designed as a tribute to the musician, set amid a re-creation of the Life Aquatic set — an affectionate, quirky balm for the pain of Bowie’s loss.
9 p.m. Saturday. Texas Theatre, Dallas. $52 advance, $55 day of show.
Andra Day at House of Blues
Never miss a local story.
The past 12 months have been heady ones for Washington state-born and San Diego-raised Andra Day. Her major-label debut, Cheers to the Fall, was released last summer, and on the strength of her anthemic single, Rise Up, she has fast become one of R&B’s most visible and promising talents. While Rise Up is a fine showcase for her expressive voice, the bulk of Fall is actually more in line with the sensibility described by Rolling Stone — a “post-millennial Billie Holiday” — which suggests, thrillingly, that Day can take her sound anywhere and everywhere going forward. With Chloe x Halle.
8 p.m. Tuesday. House of Blues, Dallas. $30-$45.
