February 3. Experimental pop duo the Books got its start in Brooklyn before falling in love with the scene around MassMOCA and relocating nearby in 2004. Fitting, then, that member Nick Zammuto should reserve the arts center as the venue to unveil his new band, Zammuto. The quartet recently tested the indie waters with an EP, Idiom Wind, and prior to its debut set will screen Achante, a documentary on Haitian voudou scored by the maestro. (Saakumu featuring Bernard Woma visits February 2; Catherine Russell sings February 18.) 8pm. $20, $24, $10 students. North Adams, Massachusetts.
