Dreaming of Vienna 

Our writers tell you what's hot this week.

Though she's often compared to Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos, San Francisco singer-songwriter Vienna Teng insists her piano-centered pop is mostly influenced by '70s-era folk like Simon and Garfunkel and James Taylor. The 27-year-old's classical upbringing and skills at the piano remain her defining quality, however. Her latest release, Dreaming Through the Noise, shows her delicately crafted sound stretching the genre — from the romantic English-novel charm of "Now Three" to the jazzy "I Don't Feel So Well." She plays with Jenny Owens Young at the Palace of Fine Arts on Thursday, May 10. 8 p.m., $27.50. ViennaTeng.com
