From NYTimes.com:

Peter Evans (Thursday) Mr. Evans, the trumpeter, has a mind-boggling new album, “Ghosts” (More Is More), that pursues complex derivations of standard form. In his first set here, at 8 p.m., he works with the same slashing acoustic band featured on the album, with the pianist Carlos Homs, the bassist Tom Blancarte and the drummer Jim Black. A second set will feature all of the above along with Sam Pluta, who specializes in live electronics. Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues, Gowanus, Brooklyn , littlefieldnyc.com; $10 cover. (Chinen)

Vinny Golia (Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday) Mr. Golia, a multireedist and pillar of the West Coast improv scene, has programmed the first half of April at the Stone. What that means, among other things, is that we’ll have a handful of good chances to hear him. On Friday he plays two sets, 8 and 10 p.m., with the bassist Ken Filiano; the first set will also feature the guitarist Nels Cline. On Tuesday at 8 p.m. he leads a septet; on Wednesday at 10 p.m. he presents his Music for Medium ensemble. For a full schedule (with plenty of sets by other artists), visit thestonenyc.com. The Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village ; $10 per set. (Chinen)
