THROWN OUT BONES
They know it’s only rock and roll, but they like it. Dedicated to creating unforgettable live shows based on an “immersive performance” model — in other words, they play to please, and try hard to get you involved — the San Carlos-based band known as Thrown Out Bones brings its energetic, seductive, gritty-toned act to the Lagunitas Brewing Company, 1280 N. McDowell Blvd. 3 p.m. No cover. Lagunitas.com.
It’s the classic holiday story of Kevin (McCauley Culkin), a sociopathic child abandoned before Christmas by his narcissistic, self-obsessed family. Ultimately, Kevin reacts to his humiliating forced isolation by taunting and torturing the two stupidest burglars on Earth. It screens as part of Boulevard Cinemas’ popular Flashback series. Boulevard Cinemas, 200 C St. 12:30 and 6:30 p.m. The movie repeats at the same times on Wednesday, November 21. Cinemawest.com.
JILL COHN TRIO
Referring to herself as a “songstress,” singer-songwriter Jill Cohn has a brand new album out. Titled “Balanced on the Rail,” the CD was produced by Grammy-winning producer Malcolm Burn. Cohn’s voice and style have often been compared to such artists as Joni Mitchell and Sarah McLachlan, but she puts her own unique spin on finely crafted folk, country tunes designed to incite her listeners’ emotions in a deep way. This weekend, she’ll be at the Big Easy, 128 American Alley. 8 p.m. No cover. BigEasyPetaluma.com.
