Fresh off an eclectic monthlong residency at the Blue Whale, Grammy-nominated keyboardist John Beasley leads this funk and soul-jazz-oriented trio joined by bassist Daryl Jones and drummer Ronald Bruner Jr. The trio, titled 3 Brave Souls, will be joined by a pair of vocalists in Nayanna Holley and Dwight Trible, who reliably can take any song directly into interstellar space. The Jazz Bakery at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, 9820 Washington Blvd., Culver City. Fri., 8 p.m. $25. http://www.jazzbakery.com .

Equally adept with classical and jazz, New York-based pianist Uri Caine performs with a trio that includes bassist Drew Gress and drummer Clarence Penn for a night that should be reminiscent of his celebrated Village Vanguard live recordings and his 2011 album "Siren" (which surprisingly marked his first studio recording in a trio). The Blue Whale, 123 Astronaut E.S. Onizuka St., Suite 301., L.A. Sat., 9 p.m. $15 http://www.bluewhalemusic.com .

Billy Preston, a 6-foot-8 incoming freshman who played all summer with Santa Ana Mater Dei, has enrolled at St. John Bosco, according to OCVarsity.com. He'd join senior Daniel Hamilton and junior Tyler Dorsey to give the Braves an imposing trio. West Hills Chaminade has also added several transfers, so the battle continues to strengthen teams as school begins. Eric.email@example.com

"I don't want a front-row seat--it might be too loud." One parent, waiting in line at Emerson Junior High School Auditorium recently, with toddlers in tow, had reservations concerning the trio about to perform. She needn't have worried. Here from Canada on a performance and workshop tour, Sharon, Lois and Bram have been entertaining young children for years. Their sound is warm and mellow, a mix of old nursery favorites, playground chants, lullabies and folk music from all over the world.

Few bands know how to be simultaneously funny and scary as well as Liars. The perennially expatriated trio (most recently from Berlin) has examined many styles, from the damned and danceable growl of Suicide to an archly dumb-as-a-post rock riffage to an ambient swoon worthy of their good friends in Radiohead. Fonda Theatre, 6126 Hollywood Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Fri. $20.50. goldenvoice.com.

Daniel Davies needs to drive. It's his preferred way back to Los Angeles after a tour leading the band Year Long Disaster, behind the wheel of his 1996 green van, sometimes driving alone, sometimes in silence, or cranking up the satellite radio for hours of music and basketball. He can get across the country in just three days, while the rest of his hard rock trio flies comfortably back home. "I get there faster than most," Davies, 29, says of his driving skills but admits, "We keep finding these tickets in the back of the van."

The electro trio the Glitch Mob is doing its level best to make techno-centric live sets as physical and involving as possible. Pairing the richness and headiness of the best dance music with the head-nodding backbeats of hip-hop, they only aim to move you, and they by and large succeed. El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Sat. $22. (323) 936-6400.
