Live Tonight: Local H, Victor Wooten

Forming in Illinois in 1990, guitar/drum duo Local H got its major break in 1996 when alternative-rock radio picked up the tracks “Bound for the Floor” and “Eddie Vedder” from the record As Good as Dead. While the band would never replicate that success, several lineup changes and releases—most recently 2012’s Hallelujah! I’m a Bum—have tried. With Bad Veins. El Corazon. 8 p.m. $13 adv./$15 DOS. 21 and over. JAMES BALLINGER

Victor Wooten’s day job is playing bass for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, but the five-time Grammy winner has made nearly as many records as a solo act. Though you couldn’t describe many bass players as “shredders,” Wooten is nothing short of that, without being short on soul as well. The Neptune, 1303 N.E. 45th St., 682-1414, 8 p.m. $26.50 adv./$30 DOS. DL
