JENNY SCHEINMAN’S MISCHIEF AND MAYHEM at Jazz Standard (through Jan. 21, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.). Ms. Scheinman takes the violin into jazz, Appalachian folk, experimental rock and many zones between. This weekend at the Jazz Standard she presents Mischief and Mayhem, a quartet that makes experimental music of textural enigma, white-knuckle throb and, occasionally, moments of startling melodic clarity. The expert group features Nels Cline on guitar, Todd Sickafoose on bass and Jim Black on drums.
ZS, OLIVER LAKE AND MORE at H0L0 (Jan. 25, 8 p.m.). Pouring together no-wave, free jazz and electronic incitement, Zs might be improvised music’s ultimate 21st-century cult group. The band, which has gone through a number of lineup changes, currently features Sam Hillmer on tenor saxophone; Patrick Higgins on electric guitar and electronics; Greg Fox on drums and percussion; and Michael Beharie on electronics. Zs celebrate their 15th anniversary with this show, at a basement space in Ridgewood, Queens. The night will see appearances from a range of other performers, including the master alto saxophonist Oliver Lake and the young cellist Leila Bordreuil.
