Ginger Baker at One World Theatre. He’ll always be best-known as the drummer for Cream with guitarist Eric Clapton and the late bassist Jack Bruce, but Baker has explored a lot of territory that runs well beyond the classic-rock realm in a career that now stretches across six decades. A 1970s stretch in Nigeria found him digging into African music; more recently, he’s steered toward improv with the Ginger Baker Jazz Confusion quartet. He also was the subject of a recent film voted best documentary at SXSW 2012. $45-$113. 8 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. oneworldtheatre.org.
