1. Marc Ribot. Sept. 25, at Miami-Dade County Auditorium.
Guitarist Marc Ribot has done studio work for and collaborated with artists as disparate as Tom Waits, Wilson Pickett, McCoy Tyner and Andrés Calamaro. On his own work, playing electric or acoustic guitar, Ribot has shown not only a remarkable stylistic range — from rock and noise to jazz and Afro-Cuban music — but also the intelligence and technique to make musical exploration accessible (A populist avant-gardist?).
