Your look ahead at Valley Arts

A "Luau, Luau": Whoa, baby, you gotta go to Zen for Primates' "Summer Luau," 8 p.m. June 28, Godfrey Daniels, 7 E. Fourth St., Bethlehem. Zen for Primates, above, is back, spreading mature mirth and musical mayhem on a warm summer night. "Life Is A Cabaret," my friend, whenever they show up. With the mysterious T. Roth, vocals, stories, bells and whistles, fronting complex and tight musical weavings from Mike Krisukas, guitar; Jodi Beder, cello; Pete "Saxman" Fluck, sax, harmonica; and Shelagh Maloney, violin (don't call it a fiddle), and with frequent audience participation, a Zen for Primates' concert is not just music, it's an "auto body experience." Tickets: 610-867-2390
