Thurs 7:30 p.m., Fri and Sat 8 p.m., Sat 3 p.m., Sun 2 p.m. $32-$35, $4 off seniors. Stoneham Theatre, 395 Main St., Stoneham. 781-279-2200, www.stonehamtheatre.org

    In a low key Bassist-about-town Greg Loughman is joined by fellow jazzers John Funkhouser (keys), Phil Sargent (guitar), and Mike Conners (drums) for his indie pop-rock-prog-jam-band Lowman. Together, they sound like “Elvis Costello meets Esperanza Spalding,’’ at least according to fan Tom Jenkins, who blogs about the group. Rockin’ the Rosebud is a quadruple bill with Lowman, Yankee Power, JVD & the Backporch Smokers, and the Scatter Gang. Jan. 13, 8:30 p.m. $5-$7.
