Progressive folk rockers Tempest have often been compared to Jethro Tull. Whether that’s due to their musical influences or founding member Lief Sorbye’s resemblance to Tull singer Ian Anderson is up for debate. But that doesn’t take away from the quintet’s original take on traditional Celtic and Scandinavian music fused with rock ’n’ roll. The group is also known for its high-energy performances and humorous on-stage antics. Check out the band this weekend when they play 7:30 p.m. May 21 at the Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall, 511 W. King St., Carson City. Tickets are $15 general and $12 for students and seniors. Call 883-1976. —Kelley Lang
