Lipbone Redding Natasha’s Bistro, 112 Esplanade, 9 p.m., $8. From the venue website: “Inventive voicestrumentalist and Southern Gentleman, Lipbone Redding, creates original songs that effervesce with New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. Though his songs stand alone, his entire show is greased with uncanny riffs of vocal trumpeting (AKA THE LIP-BONE), booming mouth percussion, hilarious side moments and esoteric lyrics. Witty, soulful, and sincere, this freespirit has caught fire in Manhattan’s downtown scene.”
