What To Do Wednesday: MBAR, Shilpa & Suckers

If my preview of Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson's show tonight at The Summit, 2210 Summit St., seemed noncommittal, it's because I'm not completely sold on the phosphorescent folk rocker's entertainment value.

But considering he's playing with Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers, it doesn't really matter whether MBAR delivers. I witnessed Ray lay waste to the Mohawk Saturday at SXSW, massaging her harmonium as she emanated vicious snarls. If she could caterwaul like that at noon, I imagine she will be unstoppable at night.

A third Brooklyn-based buzz band, Suckers, rounds out the bill. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $8.
