You might remember Ryan Cabrera
as the teen idol who was forced down our throats by the Ashlee/Joe Simpson clan a few years back. These days, the Dallas native is all growed up, with new hair product, an indie label and bleaker songs of heartbreak. But fret not fans of Cabrera of old, the angst comes coated in a thick pop sheen tonight at Revolution, 8 p.m., $5. Clayton Senne
and Ben Ghormley
University of Memphis' Nu-Collective Jazz Quintet
jams and such at the Afterthought, 8 p.m., $8.
