Todd Rundgren wears many hats. He's a singer-songwriter, a piano man, and a software developer. His genius shaped much of the memorable music of the '70s and '80s. As an engineer or producer, he worked with Grand Funk Railroad, Hall & Oates, and even Meat Loaf. Dad rock never sounded as good as when Rundgren is playing it. This month, he'll release White Knight, an album on which he worked with a ton of big voices in the industry, including Trent Reznor, Robyn, Daryl Hall, Joe Walsh, and Donald Fagen. He'll hit up Fort Lauderdale's Parker Playhouse on the Chivalrock Tour, offering both a meet-and-greet and a VIP package to get the full Rundgren experience. 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at Parker Playhouse, 707 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-462-0222; parkerplayhouse.com. Admission costs $37.50 to $193.
A true artistic mastermind,
