Music: Seeing as how I’ve walked out of more than a couple of shows at the Armory with my hearing temporarily impaired from the volume, it kind of makes sense that the venue has booked deaf hip-hopper Sean Forbes. This 30-year-old artist from Detroit plays quirky upbeat hip-hop despite being deaf since birth. Forbes was signed by the Bass Brothers, who also discovered Eminem. In 2006 Forbes co-founded D-PAN —Deaf Professional Arts Network — a nonprofit organization seeking to make music and music culture accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities. Sean Forbes plays Thursday, March 7, 8 p.m. at the Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $10. rochestermainstreetarmory.com.

Art: Attend a lecture and book signing with Peter B. Lloyd, author of "Vignelli Transit Maps," tonight at 5:30 p.m. at RIT’s University Gallery (James R. Booth Hall, Lomb Memorial Dr., Henrietta). The event is free to attend; more info at ritpress.rit.edu or 475-2404.
