Some can't-miss events to dive into
1. Streisand is back
It’s hard to see Barbara Streisand in concert these days, because she’s not on tour.
So one of your next best options is the tribute show “Simply Streisand… Back to Broadway.”
Returning to Milton will be an anonymous tribute artist, who’ll tackle hits by the multiple award-winning singer, while also donning Streisand’s look.
From the hair, down to the trademark nails and wearing meticulously detailed replicas of iconic concert gowns, the tribute artist (whose name has been purposely omitted from her own website) is “Simply Streisand” in every way.
“Simply Streisand” will be performed across two shows at 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday. Tickets are $20 to $25.

2. Twin-sized fun
Double trouble is headed to Sussex County in the form of musical twin sisters Sarah and Claire Bowman.
The Bowmans —blending folk, Americana and classical music — perform tunes that are thoughtful and imaginative, while also showcasing vulnerability.
The twins will hit the stage at 7 p.m., Friday. Tickets are $15.

3. Free concert
Fans of Fleetwood Mac, Wilco and Jenny Lewis might fall in love with the Georgia outfit Neighbor Lady.
The indie-rock and classic country Western band features Emily Braden, Jack Blauvelt, Merideth Hanscom and Andrew McFarland.
Neighbor Lady began as a Braden solo project. She was writing music by herself, for herself. Lyrically, the songs chronicle events in her personal life and her emotions surrounding those times.
After high school, she moved to Athens, Ga., met guitarist Blauvelt and formed Neighbor Lady, a small band centered on supporting Braden’s songwriting.
As Braden puts it, “Neighbor Lady started because I was too nervous to play a show by myself, so I asked my friends to play with me.”
Neighbor Lady will greet audiences with some Mr. Rogers love at 10 p.m., Friday. Admission is free.
