Best Bets for the Week of Mar. 28-Apr. 3

Article excerpt

Tonight

Debbie Davies Blues Band: Once upon a time, she played second guitar in the Albert Collins Band, but there's no more playing second fiddle for her--on the other hand, can you play second fiddle if you're playing second guitar? No matter, Debbie brings her hot guitar and her band to Off Broadway at 9 p.m. More info: 773-3363.

Friday

Mark O'Connor

Vassar Clements: We've often heard Mark O'Connor called country music's premier instrumentalist--the phrase "world's greatest musician" has even popped up a time or two. Whether or not you'd be willing to go that far, there's no disputing that O'Connor and Vassar Clements are a couple of the finest fiddlers ever to come down the pike. This remarkable pairing will be taking advantage of the acoustics at the Sheldon in a 7:30 p.m. concert. To find out more, see page 14.

Rod Stewart: In the concerts on his current tour, Rod has been working his way through all those hits in chronological fashion, retrospecting his hard-rocking salad days early in the show and winding up mostly in the mid-tempo mode of his fantastic forties. What a treat for his older fans! They get to glory in the golden oldies and then catch a quick snooze before the drive home. For more information on the 8 p.m. show at the Kiel Center, call 291-7600 or 622-KIEL.

They Might Be Giants: And then again, they might not. Some say yes, some say don't be ridiculous. But their Mississippi Nights show is definitely sold out. If you don't believe us, call 421-3853.

Sgt. Bilko: It's been at least five years since Steve Martin has given an over-the-top comedy performance on film (and that was in the bomb "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"). In "Sgt. Bilko," which opens today, Martin fans can expect to see more of his rapid-fire wit and outright lunacy. Martin revives the role of master sergeant

master schemer originally played by Phil Silvers in the `60s comedy series.

Saturday

DC Talk: OK, so they're contemporary Christians and proud of it, but the three guys in DC Talk would just as soon that the musical category of the same name didn't exist. For all their C.C. success, they say, they'd rather have come up through the musical mainstream in the first place. DC Talk, less a hip-hop group these days than it is a rock/funk/folk band, is joined by Audio Adrenaline for a 7:30 show at the Kiel Center. You can read a lot more about the band on page 7.

All-4-One: That sweet soul music is great, but even tons of sugar can't do much for mush. On the other hand, if you're hooked on the soulful harmonies that helped these former church choirboys make a mega-mega-hit of "I Swear," you can get your fill at 7:30 at the Westport Playhouse. Ticket info: 291-7600.

Sunday

Jeffrey Siegel: The internationally acclaimed pianist brings one of his Keyboard Conversations to the concert hall at the Symphony's Community Music School in U. …
