Dori Amarilio and Gretje Angell, 7 p.m. Tuesday, Blu Jazz+, 47 E. Market St., $18, blujazzakron.com, 330-252-1190, www.gretjeangell.com or www.doriandgretje.com.

A local girl makes good. Angell, an Akron native, Copley High School graduate and daughter of late Akron jazz drummer Tommy “The Hat” Voorhees, is living and working in La-La Land as a jazz and opera singer. But she is returning to her old stomping grounds with her primary musical partner, guitarist Amarilio, and a rhythm section in tow to celebrate the release of their debut album “In Any Key.” Angell’s silky coloratura soprano and Amarilio’s smooth Brazilian influenced guitar, playing along with snappy grooves and some special guests to help pay tribute to Angell's father, should all add up to a nice, warm evening at Blu.

Bret Michaels, Ratt, Warrant and Firehouse, 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday, Goodyear Hall, 1144 E. Market St., $39.50-$129.50, www.goodyeartheater.com

The recently renovated Goodyear Theater christens its also recently renovated partner, the Goodyear Hall, with this trip into the hair-metal wayback machine starring a bunch of dudes who wore a lot of multicolored spandex and leather in the 1980s and 1990s. Michaels also rode a bus and then lived in a house full of ladies of possibly ill repute for a few seasons. Warrant and Akron’s Jani Lane died five years ago this past August. Firehouse is big in Japan (seriously!) and Ratt’s “Round and Round” is still one of the best pop-metal singles ever. Go and relive your salad days, but don’t bother trying to tease or spray your hair that high again. And if you’re under the age of 40 go and see what all the tight-panted, squidley-dee guitar solos and catchy choruses of hair/glam/arena metal were all about.

Robert Ethington, 9 p.m., Friday, Sept 9, Hive Mind, 375 W. Exchange St., free.

Local Drummer Robert “Bongo” Ethington — who played with Unit 5, Tin Huey, Half Cleveland and others — will be celebrating the release of his solo album “Black Collar” with help from Ralph Carney, Ethington’s horn-playing Tin Huey bandmate aka the guy playing sax on the “Bojack Horseman” theme song alongside his nephew Pat Carney. The album, composed and performed by Ethington, will be for sale, naturally, following the listening. Ethington and Carney will join forces for an “improvisational free jazz duet performed by Bob and Ralph, inspired by John Coltrane and Rashied Ali's ‘Interstellar Space.’?” Though with Carney involved, it'll probably be considerably funnier than “Interstellar Space.”
