PICK OF THE DAY

Someone’s in the kitchen

What would you like to ask Christopher Kimball, host of the PBS TV show “America’s Test Kitchen”? We’d like to know more about “vengeful cheese makers,” Mrs. Patmore from “Downton Abbey,” and Mary Roach (who knows way too much about the digestive tract). Bring your questions to “America’s Test Kitchen Live” where Kimball will dish about the show’s testings, tastings, guests, and experiments. 8 p.m. $39.75, $85 (VIP). Sanders Theatre, 45 Quincy St., Cambridge. 617-496-2222. www.boxoffice.harvard.edu

WEDNESDAY

Gallery tour If you’re out and about in Kenmore Square any time of day or night, stop by Panopticon Gallery and take in three exhibits. “On First Contact” is a show of contact prints (photos produced from film). “No Thoughts Magazine” presents emerging artists from the magazine founded in 2009. “What I Did on My Summer Vacation” needs no explanation. 24/7 through Jan. 14. Free. Panopticon Gallery at the Hotel Commonwealth, 502c Commonwealth Ave., Boston. 617-267-8929. www.panopticongallery.com

Two voices The first United States season of “The Voice” featured former Bostonian Rebecca Loebe, who chose Adam Levine over Christina Aguilera.

Wednesday features the contemporary Celtic Bluegrass fusion group Cat and The Moon. Ticketholders show off too at the after-concert pickin’ party. 8 p.m. (also Oct. 23, Nov. 20, Dec. 4, and Dec. 18). $10, $5 students (reservations recommended). Outpost 186, 186½ Hampshire St., Inman Square, Cambridge. www.outpost186.com

Music lesson Rather than bury your head in a book or device, let your ears do the work at “The Story of Jazz in Concert.” The Mood Swings all-female band are your professors at this sentimental journey through styles that resulted in jazz: ragtime, Dixieland, big band, and modern jazz fusion. 7:30 p.m. Free. First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough St., Boston. 617-267-6730. www.firstchurch

THURSDAY

Paying tribute in song Vaughn Monroe arrived at the New England Conservatory in 1935 to become an opera singer. He stayed for just one semester, but the singer and bandleader’s archives were donated to the school after he died. Jazz singer Billy Eckstine was the first African-American singer to introduce new songs over network radio, and both musicians will be honored at “The Music of Vaughn Monroe and Billy Eckstine.” Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. Free. Jordan Hall,
290 Huntington Ave., Boston. 617-585-1260. www.necmusic.edu

Diamond in the rough She tells it like it is, throws in some burlesque and cabaret, and sings with her band, the Flawless Zircons. Sandra Bernhard brings her “Sandyland” show to Natick. Oct. 17 and 18 at 8 p.m. $50. Center for Arts in Natick, 14 Summer St., Natick. 508-647-0097, ext. 201. www.natickarts.org
