Indoor: Chelsea Carmichael (10 p.m., Le Studio TD, free). The moody, groovy debut album by British saxophonist Chelsea Carmichael, The River Does’t Like Strangers, was released last year on Shabaka Hutchings’ Native Rebel Records. Like Hutchings, who has become an up and coming jazz staple in recent years, she is part of London’s groundbreaking young jazz scene.

Outside: Janette King (5 p.m., Rio Tinto Stage, free). Former Montrealer Janette King is now based in Toronto, but don’t take that against her. The DJ-turned-singer-songwriter’s 2021 debut album What We Lost is a mesmerizing mix of soulful R&B styles with the occasional dip in deep house.
