Outdoor barbecue nights with live music are pretty much the definition of summer. But don't wait 'til the weekend to get the party started — head over to hip Arts District gourmet marketplace Urban Radish for Jazz Wednesdays, a summerlong event featuring Kyle Crane (a young musician whose credits already include The Tonight Show and The Late Show) and his band, paired with a tasty themed menu. A $15 plate includes your choice of a protein and two sides, and the menu changes weekly to highlight seasonal produce or to riff on a theme (Taste of Italy, Coq au Vin Night). Although the menu varies, wine tastings (and beer flights!) are always in season, along with cheese and charcuterie selections from the market's extensive deli case. Urban Radish co-owner and chief forager Keri Ann Aivazis says, “It has become a vibrant and fun evening.” Urban Radish, 661 Imperial St., Arts District; Wed., Aug. 13, 6-9 p.m. (dinner until 9:30 p.m.); free, dinner $15. (213) 892-1570, www.urban-radish.com/jazz-wednesdays.
