Tuesday music picks: 8 1/2 Souvenirs, Warren Hood
8½ Souvenirs at C-Boy’s Heart & Soul. The band’s Wikipedia entry still uses the word “was” in describing its present status, but the onetime swing-jazz kingpins of the Continental Club recently returned and have set up shop with a Tuesday happy-hour residency down the street at the Continental offshoot C-Boy’s. Original members Olivier Giraud, Glover Gill, Todd Wulfmeyer and Kathy Kiser Benayoun are all in the house. Free. 7:30 p.m. 2008 S. Congress Ave. cboysheartnsoul.com.
