Open Jam Session with Small World Jazz
Led by drummer Kyle Keener and guitarist Polly Harrison, Small World places world music in the jazz setting.

They are pros, however, so don't sit in if you think that anyone can just "feel" their way through a jazz tune. Free, 7pm, Olmos Bharmacy, 3902 McCullough Ave., (210) 822-1188

Tool and Primus
With their dark, Brothers Quay-ripoff stop motion music videos and fanatic fan base, Tool's elaborate story lines and progressive rock tendencies are cloaked in a "sinister" metal wrapping. Noodle-brained punk-funksters Primus show us what the Red Hot Chili Peppers would sound like if they lost the dude with the porn 'stache and bondage cargos and resurrected Hillel, covering only Captain Beefheart tunes. With 3Teeth. $39.50-$79.50, 7:30pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Parkway, (210) 444-5000
