There really is no way to have too many music series around town, so go ahead and add Loring Late Night at LoringPasta Bar to your list. Tonight begins the Tuesday Compass shows, which feature local alt-country artists Red Daughters and The Dirt Road Ramblers. Loring Late Night kicks off after dinner service ends, and runs all week with Midweek Mambo featuring Charanga Tropical on Wednesday nights, a rotating lineup on Thursday nights, and Salsa with the Salsa Police on Friday and Saturday nights. Next time you’ve finished a nice pasta dinner at Loring, stick around because that means the music is about to start. 10 p.m. $3. —EJ
