Guitar whiz Tony Scherr at the Cafe du Nord.

You've probably never heard of Tony Scherr, but your favorite artists sure have. One of New York City's most in-demand session guitarists, he's shared stage and studio with jazz outfits the Lounge Lizards and Sex Mob, sweet-voiced songstresses Norah Jones and Feist, and Americana icons Willie Nelson and Ani DiFranco. He also has fans in Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, whose Smells Like label just released Scherr's solo debut Come Around, and Mother Hips frontman Tim Bluhme, who will be opening for Scherr Tuesday, August 28 at Cafe du Nord in SF. With Stevie Coyle. 9 p.m., $10.
