Thriving Ivory features lead singer Clayton Stroope's moving vocal skills and piano man Scott Jason's acoustic rhythms in perfect proportions. These elements and the talents of Drew Cribley (guitar and back up vocals), Bret Cohune (bass) and Paul Niedermier (drums) come together to create a golden mellow rock sound. If you're a fan of the sounds of Augustana or The Rocket Summer, Thriving Ivory is a show you don't want to miss. $15 in advance. 7:30 p.m. Neighborhood Theatre, 511 East 36th St. 704-358-9298. www.neighborhoodtheatre.com.
