MUSIC

The Gallus Brothers

Today, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

This Washington-based duo are brothers from different mothers who make the kind of olfashioned ragtime blues that could make the stiffest of wallflowers do a merry little jig in their seat.

 

Hoots and Hellmouth, Ben Lewis

Friday, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

I would expect nothing less than a spirited, cathartic product from a band called Hoots and Hellmouth. With their blend of roots, rock and country, the full set band from Philly doesn’t disappoint.

 

Pangea, Sabrina Simonton, Connecticut

Saturday, 7 p.m.

M Street and Colgate

Pangea: Supercontinent or indie folk band from the all-too talented Griznar Music Collective? The backyard set will also present two local talents: Davis-born acoustic singer Sabrina Simonton and Tim Callahan, the Davis bicycle enthusiast behind Connecticut.

 

Religious Girls, Team Robespierre, Novel Heroes, Babs Johnson Gange

Saturday, 8 p.m.

13th and E Street

I’m an advocate for anything that can spark an impromptu dance party. Brooklyn group Team Robespierre does just that:80s synthy dance, house and punk come together in an electrifying mix that should make for a fine night of spastic rug cutting.

 

Lee Bob Watson with Happy Mayfield

Saturday, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

Twangy, funky and full of attitude, Lee Bob Watson creates the kind of pure, unadulterated country that would make Johnny Cash proud.

 

Jeff Hanson

Wednesday, Sept. 17, 8 p.m.

Old Firehouse

Jeff Hanson has the voice of a 12-year-old choir girl trapped in a grown man’s body. This image may be strange, but the musicmelodic pop fare featuring Hanson’s angelic, high-pitched falsettoworks. The Kill Rock Stars singer from Twin Cities will perform songs from his latest release, Madam Owl.

 

Atmosphere, Blueprint, Abstract Rude

Friday, Sept. 19, 6:30 p.m., $25

Empire Events Center in Sacramento

With over a decade in the music business, Minneapolis hip-hop duo Atmosphere has never let me down. Whether it’s forlorn tales of Lucy Ford or the trials and tribulations of the modern man’s hustle, frontman Slug always a wise story to share. His latest piece of advice? When life gives you lemons, you paint that shit gold.

 

Diego’s Umbrella

Friday, Sept. 19, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

Spanish surf? Modern Latin pop? It doesn’t matterI’ll be too busy dancing (poorly but enthusiastically, mind you) to care for genre labeling.
