Like the Rebirth Brass Band, Jonathan Richman is another act whose appearance in town always warrants note on this page. Lyrical sincerity and musical diversity converge in Richman’s wonderful work. He appears with trusty drummer Tommy Larkins at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland) for a 9 p.m. show. Tix: $15-$18 (18+). 828-5600. space538.org.
