Maceo Parker at Antone’s. The words "living legend" get tossed around far too lightly, but the 75-year-old sax man fits the bill. He spent stints performing with James Brown in the ’60s, Parliament/Funkadelic in the ’70s and Prince in the ’90s. He’s also been a guest star on recordings by De La Soul, Jane’s Addiction, Dave Matthews Band and many more. This is a rare chance to get up close and personal with one of the most storied musicians of our time. $35-$40. 8 p.m. Saturday. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
