Never one to ride the coat tails of his own achievements, genre-hopping guitarist Bill Frisell, along with longtime collaborators Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollensen, has “taken on” something very intriguing with his latest project. In The Bill Frisell Trio takes on Keaton, Woodring & Morrison — which hits The Shedd Satuday, Jan. 23 — the threesome perform original compositions that accompany a strange array of short films, including the timeless slapstick of Buster Keaton, the Suess-on-acid animation of Seattle’s Jim Woodring as well as Bill Morrison’s reworking of the 1926 film The Mesmerist. Ambitious? Yes. Worth a look-see and listen? Absolutely. $22-$34, http://wkly.ws/5v



Like John Belushi, John Candy and Chris Farley before him, comedian Gabriel Iglesias is a funny big dude who makes a living being a funny big dude. But unlike that triumvirate of tragic-comic guys who died young, Iglesias — in his Panama shirts and with his legs sticking like two hamhocks out of oversized denim shorts — doesn’t have that dark edge of self-destruction that can spell coronary disaster for big-bodied celebrities living in the fast lane. Iglesias’ stage name, “Fluffy,” refers as much to his sunny, enthusiastic disposition as his physical stature, and his stand-up routines lean toward the feel-good side of making fun of himself, whether that be mining the hilarity of his King Kong appetite or poking with subtle pride at his Mexican-American roots. Even his blue material comes across as clean and family friendly, as when he talks about the antic behavior attendant on his 10-year-old stepson hitting puberty. He also has a wonderfully fine-tuned talent for mimicry (his Bill Clinton is spot on) and other vocal effects, which he works seamlessly into his shtick. Iglesias hits McDonald Theatre at 7:30 pm Friday, Jan. 22; $36.50, tickets at http://wkly.ws/5w



When Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in the mid ‘80s, he took not only his songwriting genius and overcast British sensibility but removed every last shred of dignity and integrity from the outfit. That, my friends, was the final cut. Of course, none of this stopped that greedhead hack, guitarist David Gilmour, from continuing on as Pink Floyd, thereby turning the once glorious band into a traveling snakeoil show of nostalgia and laser-light horseshit for middle-age stoners. Me, I’d rather see The Pink Floyd Experience any day, a tribute band of crackerjack musicians who nail the songs with precision, passion and the respect they deserve, from their blistering version of “Comfortably Numb” to “Time.” They play 7pm, Sunday, at Hult Center. $25-$37.
