Weekend Events: Jazz, Hip Hop, bunnies, and more

Written by Tony Hobday

30Friday — Steve Lyman presents Nir Felder

Called “the next big jazz guitarist” by NPR, Nir Felder is a new voice in instrumental music. Equally adept across a wide range of genres, inspired by icons from John Coltrane to voodoo chile Jimi Hendrix, Felder has forged a unique and highly recognizable sound at a young age and quickly become one of New York City’s most highly sought-after musicians as both a solo artist and as a sideman. He has performed with Chaka Khan, Diana Krall, John Mayer, Meshell Ndegeocello, and many others.
Jazz at the Gallivan Center Stage, 239 S. Main St., 7:30 p.m. Tickets $10, at the venue

— Sugar House Estate Sale

This is not your typical estate sale! From vinyl records to vintage magazines, weed whackers/whippers (woohoo!) to patio furniture, skis to roller blades, and so very much more for all the hoarders … don’t get your newspaper collection in a ruffle, I’m just kidding! It should be a great way to spend part of the holiday weekend.
Residential property at 1315 E. Kensington Ave., Sugar House, 10 a.m.–3 p.m., through Sunday. 

 1Sunday — April Fools-Easter-Conference-Drag Queen Bingo-Brunch

Will that’s a mouthful, no pun intended. “This alignment of holidays will not occur again for the next 73 years” the event claims on its Facebook post. So the last time the alignment occurred Gene was learning to drive?? Flirt with the  Matrons of Mayhem while enjoying a wonderful brunch prepared by Jesse, then win fabulous prizes playing bingo. Then saunter over to Club Try-Angles for a cocktail and “Beer Church”. They serve wonderful Mimosas and Bloody Marys.
Off Trax Cafe, 259 W. Harvey Milk Blvd., 11 a.m., bingo starts 1 p.m. Brunch overpriced but still tasty. Bingo cards $5.
