    The Greyboy Allstars combine the best that acid jazz has to offer. The band was formed in 1993 by DJ Greyboy and saxophonist Karl Denson. From 1995 to 1997, the band released three albums that helped put them on the acid-jazz map. Though the members have released solo projects, they have reunited with their latest album Live and have begun touring the country. The Greyboy Allstars play at 4th and B, and the 21-and-up show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $25. For more information, call (619) 231-4343.

    Saturday (15)

    The lives of an anorexic poet, a male model and a crisis hotline volunteer cross in Nicky Silver’s “The Food Chain.” The off-Broadway play has made waves in the theatre world due to the meaning behind the story. Silver uses social satire to tell a story that analyzes society’s preoccupations with food, sex, looks and fashion — a story that is perfectly fitting in today’s appearance-driven world. The show runs through May 30 at the Old Globe. For more information, call (619) 239-2255.

    Called the “punk-disco queen of the underground,” Peaches has made an impression on the music world. After releasing her debut album Teaches of Peaches in 2002, Peaches brought her own brand of musical flavor to the industry with her aggressive, feminist and campy tones. Although her second album, Fatherfucker, hasn’t received the critical acclaim her first album has, Peaches still stays true to her own beat. She will play at Canes Bar & Grill at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 on the day of the show. For more information, call (858) 488-1780.
