Palaver Strings
8 p.m. Thursday. Via  the State Theatre; free, donations accepted.
Turn your Thursday night on its ear with a stream from musician-led ensemble Palaver Strings. Their show “Metamorphosis” delves into the beauty of pain and transformation by way of two extraordinary pieces of music. You’ll hear them play Strauss’s “Metamorphosen” as a means of looking back and witnessing World War II. They’ll also play Schoenberg’s “Verklartke Nacht,” which looks inward at redemption through love. The evening kicks off with a pre-concert conversation, and while they’re playing, you’ll  see visuals created by Yoon S. Byun.

Confounded Bridge
7 p.m. Saturday. Jonathan’s, 92 Bourne Lane, Ogunquit, $27.50 to $68.50.
Calling all Led Zeppelin fans! Confounded Bridge is a Led Zep tribute act that will be bringing the big vocals, thunderous drums and electrifying guitar riffs to Ogunquit. They’ve got nine albums of iconic material to choose from, so expect to hear plenty of what you know and love and maybe a few deep album cuts. We could certainly ramble on about this, but we trust you get the idea.
