KEYS TO THE CITIES We challenge you to find and play each of the 75 pianos that have been placed along the Freedom Trail, the Greenway, at Massachusetts General Hospital, the Children's Museum, Villa Victoria Center for the Arts, Franklin Park Zoo, Sullivan's at Castle Island, Harvard Square, and other Boston and Cambridge locations. "Street Pianos Boston: Play Me I'm Yours" celebrates the 75th anniversary of Celebrity Series of Boston. Times vary through Oct. 14 at the indoor and outdoor public spaces. Free. 617-482-6661,

YOUR VIEW We missed "The View" recently when crooner Michael Bublé serenaded Barbara Walters, but you will be serenaded at the intimate TD Garden. About his new record, "To Be Loved," the singer has said: "I think it's the best album I've ever made…I know every artist on earth says that when their new album is coming out but really - this time it's true. I swear. You can ask my mother." Sept. 27, 8 p.m. $76.10-$132.85. TD Garden, 100 Legends Way, Boston. 800-745-3000,

FRIENDS WITH MUSIC Two up-and-comers on Eric Prydz's Pryda Friends label visit Bijou Fridays on the Pryda Friends Tour. Norwegian DJ Jonas von der Fehr, a.k.a. Fehrplay, joined the roster in early 2012. Jeremy Olander’s 2013 release "Let Me Feel" made the overall Beatport Top 10 less than a week after it was released. Sept. 27, 10 p.m.-2 a.m. $25. 21+. Bijou, 51 Stuart St., Boston. 617-357-4565,


SEA SUSTENANCE Seafood sustainability for New England's fishing industry is the focus of the Boston Seafood Festival hosted by the Fisheries Foundation. The seafood extravaganza includes vendors, a lobster bake, celebrity chef demos, an oyster-shucking contest, educational panels, an Aquarium Touch Tank, and entertainment for all ages. Sept. 28, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. $10. Bank of America Pavilion, 290 Northern Ave., Boston.

PLAYING IT FORWARD "Jazz: The Next Generation" is the theme of this year's Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival with three outdoor stages. Performers include Grammy-nominated trumpeter Christian Scott, the Mike Tucker Trio featuring vibraphonist Warren Wolf, and the Matt Savage Quartet with saxophonist Bobby Watson. Sept. 28, noon-6 p.m. Free. Columbus Ave., South End.

QUITE A SPECTACLE Every regatta needs a celebration, and you can oblige at the Boston Harbor Islands Regatta Party on the "Voyager III." More than 100 sailboats in a variety of classes are expected to join in, followed by the awards ceremony and party (1-4:30 p.m.). Proceeds support the Boston Harbor Island Alliance. Sept. 28, 10 a.m. $25, $35 (includes ferry from Long Wharf). Spectacle Island, Boston Harbor. 617-223-8672,


PHANTASTIC Bring your appetite because there are more than 100 items to sample at the Phantom Gourmet Food Festival. Chow down in the shadow of the Green Monster where indoor and outdoor vendors include All Star Sandwich Bar, Angelina's Pastry, Boston Burger Co., Earl of Sandwich, Firefly's, and Summer Shack. Sept. 29, noon-4 p.m., rain or shine. $40, $50 (at the door). 21+. Lansdowne and Ipswich streets, Boston.

MUSICAL CYCLONE Paste Magazine described Portland, Oregon's Typhoon as "an indie rock geek's dream: a dynamic 12-piece with a seemingly unending reservoir of energy, emotive vocals, arpeggiated guitars, horns, multiple drum kits and strings … Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new critical darlings." The darlings are in Brighton to show off their latest release, "White Lighter." Sept. 29, 9 p.m. $12 in advance, $14 day of show. 18+. Brighton Music Hall, 158 Brighton Ave., Allston. 800-745-3000,
