Local tap heroine Kaleena Miller’s newest work, I Love Her, is set entirely to the music of drummer virtuoso JT Bates, who you know from his extensive work at Icehouse to collabs with Hiss Golden Messenger, Trampled by Turtles and others. “I was interested in figuring out how to add tap dance into his amazing sonic landscape,” Miller said. The conclusion should be pretty stellar, as Miller choreographs tap as a language, popping in bits of whimsy, flirtation, and fear. We’re fans of the Southern Theater as a venue choice, too, all that macabre stone and unabashedly exposed stage equipment. June 7-10. 7:30 $20 advance/$24 door. —Isabelle Wattenberg
