City Planner: Monday 10/16
Ian Anderson @ Fitzgerald Theater
class=img_thumbleft>The uncontested king of rock flautists--not that there are any challengers. From today's A-List: "Anderson hits the Fitz with a rock quartet and chamber orchestra for a program dubbed the Orchestral Jethro Tull, captured last year on disc with the Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt doing the classical bits. Always on the eccentric fringe of the prog-rock crowd, Anderson and Tull juggled old English folk, blues, and classical like a jester, all while climbing the charts. Full orchestrations of the Tull canon come naturally, if they do little to change the minds of skeptics who consider Tull--and all prog-rock, for that matter--unredeemably pretentious. For those of us who have the first six notes of 'Aqualung' branded on their cerebral cortex, this will be fun." $49. 7:30 p.m.
