Prepare to be surprised, delighted and perhaps even confused. For six years, a loosely affiliated cadre of local experimental and avant-garde musicians and artists has gathered at the Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124) around this time of year to hang out and see what transpires performance-wise. For the seventh year, they’re offering “an evening of inventive improvisation, cool collaborations and remarkable reunions.” Participants include Home and Garden, the longtime project of former Pere Ubu drummer Scott Krauss and bassist Tony Maimone; the Kidney Brothers, Bob and Jack, from Kent’s Numbers Band; and a reunion of sorts for Cleveland roots-rock group California Speedbag, paying tribute to their late frontman Gary Lupico. It starts at 8 p.m.; admission is $6. — Anastasia Pantsios
