Classic rock Back in the day, it was common for bands playing London clubs to change their names almost nightly to get more bookings. And so it was that one was named right before a gig for a well-known 18th-century agriculturalist and inventor of the seed drill - Jethro Tull - and went on to surpass its namesake's fame. Oddly, it's only recently that the band's front man and flutist, Ian Anderson, became interested in the original Tull. The result is Jethro Tull - The Rock Opera, a fusion of Anderson's prog-rock hits and a reimagined dystopian history with the title character now a wealthy scientist purveying genetically modified organisms. The show goes on at the Academy of Music, Broad and Locust Streets, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $39.50 to $89.50. Call 215-893-1999.
