Set List 

Where to go. What to hear.

Project Object at Alley Katz

3834 Zappafrank and 16745 Zappa are asteroids named for Frank Zappa. ZapA — a gene of a microbe that causes urinary tract infections — two fish, an extinct mollusk, a spider and Project Object all honor the late cult-rock icon. The band includes Ike Willis — fans know him as Joe from Joe's Garage — and Napoleon Murphy Brock, both of whom toured and recorded with Zappa for years. See the magic yourself Oct. 29, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., $12. 643-2816.

Dikki Du at Arthur's

Part of the ongoing Creole Arts series bringing Cajun and Zydeco events to our little city, Dikki Du and the Zydeco Crew take Arthur's at Inns of Virginia by storm Oct. 27. There's a free Zydeco dance lesson at 7 p.m., a show at 8 p.m., and at 1 a.m., the whole party might just hop on the Chinatown bus that embarks from Arthur's front yard and do it all over again — in Brooklyn. $10. 288-2800.

Ravi Shankar at the Landmark

The godfather of world music and the biological father of Norah Jones turned 85 this year, but it hasn't stopped him from touring in support of his new two-disc retrospective to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his first U.S. performances. Shankar performs at the Landmark Theater with Anoushka Shankar Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. $11-$32. 262-8100.

And for your comedy fix ...

Hypnotist, shmypnotist. J. Medicine Hat doesn't care about your skepticism when he gets you on stage, then tells you you're a prostitute and he has $100 to spend. Always adult-themed and even worse during the erotic show, J. reveals your inner smut at the Funny Bone Oct. 26-30, 8 p.m., with some late shows. $10-$14. 521-8900.
