Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this cloudy Tuesday.

Folk musician Jim Kweskin, founder of the Jug Band, comes to Elderly Instruments today for a concert. Kweskin and his band draw from diverse influences, and their Americana sound is tinged with not just country but with blues, ragtime, jazz, rock and pop.
If you can't make it down to Elderly, you can watch the show live online at Elderly's Concert Window page. 7:30-9:30 p.m. $20. Elderly Instruments, 1100 N. Washington Ave., Lansing. (517) 372-7880,
