Good day on this thoroughly un-springlike Friday.
Two Michigan-based guitarists bring an evening of “songs without words” — as well as a few with words — to the Ten Pound Fiddle Friday. Lansing-based guitar virtuoso Elden Kelly is known for his genre-jumping, globally influenced style of playing. He is joined Friday by Jason Dennie, an Ann Arbor-based musician. Dennie grew up in the world of bluegrass — his uncle played banjo with Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys in the early ‘70s — but his diverse influences include jazz, country and Celtic music. 8 p.m. $15/$12 members/$5 students. MSU Community Music School, 4930 Hagadorn Road, East Lansing. (517) 337-7744, tenpoundfiddle.org.

Most of us are used to reading the front-page news, but LCC’s dance program will deliver the headlines through choreography this weekend with “Front Page News.” This year’s installment of LCC’s annual spring dance concert explores media and celebrity through faculty, alumni and student choreography. The concert tackles headline stories that have shaken the world and captured the public’s imagination. “Breaking stories — both good and bad — have influenced and transformed our lives,” said Vickie Diebold, the show’s director. “Whether in print or online, newspapers have adapted and changed with the times to continue to inform the public about important events at home and around the world.” 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. $15/$10 seniors, staff and alumni/$5 students and children. Dart Auditorium, 500 N. Capitol Avenue, Lansing. (517) 483-1488, lcc.edu/showinfo.
