Freud's Last Session (Le Petit Theater, Thur-Sat 7:30pm)                             Mark St. Germain’s hit play comes to town tonight. The plot follows a conversation between Sigmund Freud and a young C.S. Lewis set on the day that World War II begins. The witty and philosophical dialogue is comprised of s series of voles about love, sex, and the existence of God. ($35+)

 
Pentatonix (Lakefront Arena, 8pm)
Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Mitch Grassi. are a cappella super-group Pentatonix. After rising to fame on “The Singoff,” in 2011, the singers released five albums topping the charts on Billboard and Youtube alike. Us The Duo & Abi open. ($35+)
 
ABC Americana Night (Banks Street Bar, 10pm)
Gal Holiday & The Honky Tonk Revue headline this celebration. If you've been pining for the velvety country voice of the frequently touring Gal Holiday, tonight's as good a chance as any to go see this unit in one of their most comfortable habitats. With a penchant for chiming country that doesn't bother to affix "alt" to the front, Holiday has carved out a New Orleans niche in which she stands alone.
 

Sonic Bloom (The Maple Leaf, 10pm)
Trumpeter Eric “Benny” of Lettuce leads his NOLA based R&B/funk project tonight. The outfit is rounded out by a group of allstars including Nigel Hall on keyboards, Eric Vogel on bass, Alvin Ford Jr. on drums, and Andrew Block on guitar. Oak Street is the perfect home venue to check out this group. ($10)
