PICK OF THE DAY

Books and branches

Volunteers used story lines, illustrations, characters, and settings from children’s books to work their decorating magic on more than 30 trees for “Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature.” Four books by honorary chairs and mother-and-daughter authors, Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple, are among the inspiration. They include “Dear Mother, Dear Daughter: Poems for Young People” and “Once Upon Ice: And Other Frozen Poems.” Nov. 21 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (through Jan. 1; Family Trees Crafts Nov. 23 and 24 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.). $15, $10 seniors, $6 ages 4-18 (includes museum admission). Concord Museum, intersection of Lexington Road and Cambridge Turnpike, Concord. 978-369-9609. www.concordmuseum.org

TUESDAY

Bread bowl Two days before Thanksgiving is a perfect time for Project Bread’s Strike Out Hunger Bowl-a-thon.

Proceeds benefit hunger relief projects in Massachusetts (online registration recommended). Lucky Strike Lanes/Jillian’s, 145 Ipswich St., Boston. 617-723-5000. www.projectbread.org/strikeouthunger

Om-nipresent Today’s words are drone rock, a “minimalist musical style that emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated sounds, notes, or tone-clusters — called drones” (Wikipedia). Om delivers the goods and adds monastic and Tibetan chanting. The group’s latest release is “Advaitic Songs.”  9 p.m. $17. 18+. Brighton Music Hall, 158 Brighton Ave., Allston. 617-876-4275. www.worldmusic.org

Four score Four seems to be a lucky number for the Daniel Byrnes Band, which went from a trio to a quartet over the past four years. Rock, soul, and roots music have been poured into its new release, “A New Song to Sing.” Special guests are Grace Morrison and the RSO (Righteously Sour Oranges). 9 p.m. (also Nov. 27). $5. Lizard Lounge, 1667 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge. 800-838-3006. www.lizardloungeclub.com

Blues in the night You know the drill after all these years: There’s a poncho section where the brave don a provided covering for protection from edible and washable materials that go flying from the Blue Man Group. Strobe lights are used. Have fun with the ping-pong-ball-tossing guys.  8 p.m. (ongoing). $55-$105 (under 5 not admitted). Charles Playhouse, 74 Warrenton St., Boston. 800-745-3000. www.ticketmaster.com

Sincerely The group exhibit “On Sincerity” wants to bridge the gap between viewer and artwork through four narratives about its theme of sincerity: materials as means and content; the work as a tool to build relationships; artists’ bodies to express intimacy, vulnerability, or the complexity of human relationships; self-reflexive forms of communication. Go see for yourself.  Tuesday hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (through Dec. 16). Free. 808 Gallery at Boston University, 808 Commonwealth Ave., Boston. 617-353-3349. www.bu.edu/cfa

WEDNESDAY

Prime suspect At age 13, Robbert van de Corput started to DJ (sounds like a bar mitzvah gig to us . . .), and it’s been full steam ahead for the 20-something Netherlands producer, label manager, and award-winning electro-house record spinner. You know him as Hardwell.  Nov. 21 from 10 p.m.- 2 a.m. $40. 21+. Umbria Prime, 295 Franklin St., Boston. 617-800-3604. www.umbriaprime.com
