We need heros and we’ll even take one from the earnest, naïve late ’90s: Ben Folds plays at Terminal 5, providing a reprieve for those of us getting by on Klonopin and vodka until November. (Note to self: Flights to Toronto leave J.F.K. daily.)

[Ben Folds at Terminal 5, 610 West 56th Street, 7 p.m., www.ticketmaster.com]
