Price: $20-$25

Not long after watching a video of ukulele phenom Jake Shimabukuro playing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," I went to Tejon Street Music and bought myself a used baritone uke. Now, after hearing him in person at SXSW, I may never pick up the instrument again. What the Hawaiian-born 35-year-old does with four strings — sans vocals, effects or bandmates — is both daunting and inspiring. You can expect equally intricate versions of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" during his show tonight at Stargazers Theatre and Event Center (10 S. Parkside Drive, stargazerstheatre.com). Tickets are $20/advance, $25/door, and showtime is 7, with the Kailin Yong Peace Project Trio opening. — Bill Forman
