Here are some suggestions from music lovers from Krakow (and Warsaw) for the next week.
F1kk1c-solotour 2013! at PIEC'Art
Natalie Sandtorv (voice and electronics) solo/ Ole Mofjell (drums) solo. Two artists from Norway doing a double - solo tour.
I'd say the samples on soundcloud sound pretty intriguing. Minimalistic and mysterious.
Joshua Abrams Natural Information Society (with Mikrokolektyw) at Re Klub
a spiecial project created by Joshua Abrams, based on the ethnic sound of guimbri, Kuba Suchar and Artur Majewski from Mikrokolektyw are participating on the tour.
The tour continues with concerts in Zielona Gora (05.03), Warszawa (07.03), Lodz (08.03), Poznan (09.03) and Wroclaw (10.03).
05.03 brings another worthwile concert at Klub Re with
Tabatu Mitsuru - guitarist of famed underground bands such as Acid Mothers Temple, Boredoms Zani Geva. To cite from the concert's description: his own input has been (dis)coloured by all from punk and industrial music, through psychedelia, folk and krautrock, to just about everything the avant-garde and improvised music have touched .
Mitsuru will play with the Krakow very own Tomek Choloniewski (bass) and Ernest Ogórek (bass)

Always on 05.03 (Tuesday) for more typically jazz music one can also consider seeing the N.S.I. Quartet at Harris Piano Jazz Bar.
The quartet with Bartlomiej Prucnal (saxophones), Cybrian Baszynski (trumpet), Michael Parker (bass) and Dawid Fortuna (drums) swept the Jazz Juniors competition in the december of the 2012. (the quartet will also play on 22.03 in PIEC'Art)

(Warsaw parenthesis opened)
every follower of the modern jazz scene knows about Pardon To Tu in Warsaw being a great place for jazz music. I'd like you to take notice as well of the Kosmos Kosmos which on the 06.03 presents a concert with a great Marco Eneidi (played with such masters of improvised music like Bill Dixon and Cecil Taylor). Marco will play with polish musicians Ksawery Wojcinski (Hera), Marek Pospieszalski (Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet) and Michal Trela (Maciej Obara electrically Trio).

06-07.03 Wolfram Trio at PIEC'Art
PIEC'Art have to be praised for being one of the few places that gives the artists chance to meet with the audience more than just for one evening.
on 06.03 and 07.03 (Wednesday and Thursday) the club will give place for another double-night stand for a Wolfram Trio (Norway as well). The trios is:
and they play freely improvised jazz music, which is exactly the thing we like, ain't it?
On Firday 08.03 (Women's day) jazz fans get a day off duty but those into indie music might enjoy
Fisz / Emade with Tworzywo Sztuczne at Klub Studio :)
09-10.03 Anna Weber Percussive Mechanics at PIEC'Art
I honestly have never heard of Anna Weber but she played with Johnem Hollenbeck, Ben Streetem, Dave Douglas and Jason Moran and that is quite a recommedation in itself.
The large instrumentation (A.Webber-fl&ts, J.Wylie-as&cl, J.Heise-vbr, E.Stemeseder-p, I.Spallati-b, M.Krümmling-dr, M.Andrzejewski-dr) might be hard to handle but it seems Anna Weber a right composer for the job.
You can judge it yourself:
