Set List. 

Where to go. What to hear.

Murphy's Kids at Alley Katz

It's nice to see those ska kids and those hard-core indie folks get together for a good old fundraiser. On the other hand, bands like Murphy's Kids have that responsible type of punk rock in their sound, a sort of Mohawk-meets-trombone thing that is both classy and considerate—in a loud kind of way. They play with fellow concerned citizens Neighborhood Friendly, Motion Picture Demise, Zero One and Vindication Dec. 22, 6-10 p.m. $5 with nonperishable food donation. 643-2816.

Duck Baker at Ashland Coffee and Tea

As finger-style guitarists go, Richmond native Baker has secured a name for himself (not his given one, though; he was once Richard Baker) with his blend of ragtime, jazz, blues and that messy stew of Americana. Kicking around the nation and its musical styles since the '70s, Baker has, in the last 20 years or so, settled into a form of jazz composition that celebrates the free improvisation and stirs in a boisterous Celtic sound as well. He plays Ashland Dec. 23 at 8 p.m. $8.
