Thin Air Trio with Margriet Naber Tchicai

Today, 7:30 p.m.

Delta of Venus

Feeling a bit anti-brocial lately? Good food and some live jazz from Thin Air Trio and pianist Margriet Naber Tchicai should do the trick. Problem solved.

Sunburned Hand of the Man, Night Nurse, Freebasers

Today, 8 p.m., $7

Javalounge in Sacramento

Only two words come to mind when it comes to Sunburned Hand of the Man: wild and weird. The ever-changing Boston-based collective specialize in good olfashioned psychedelic noise since 1997 and have been considered as one of the forefathers of the New Wave America folk revival. Should make for one interesting, if not entirely tripped out, experience.

Sambada Halloween Show

Today, 9 p.m., $10

Old Ironsides in Sacramento

I’ll admit it: When I think of a Halloween playlist, funky Afro samba is far from the first genre that comes to mind. Perhaps I am simply being too closed-minded.

The Brody’s, Warp 11

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

The G St. Pub

Rock poppers the Brody bros head against the sci-fi rockers Warp 11 in this Halloween bash.


Friday, 10 p.m., $8, 21

Distillery in Sacramento

To any who missed Sactown rappers The CUF when they last hit town, now’s your chance. What does the CUF stand for, you ask? California Underground Funkotherwise known as a jazz-infused hip-hop group that sounds like a more aggressive version of A Tribe Called Quest.

The Bottom Dwellers

Saturday, 8 p.m.

Delta of Venus

With the summer concert season at Sophia’s over, maybe some of you folk lovers have been itching for somerip-snortinhonky tonk.If you haven’t already caught local folk fixtures The Bottom Dwellers in Davis before, you’re in for a twangy treat.

Donny Hue and the Colors, Super XX Man

Saturday, 8 p.m.

University Avenue

I predict good times all around with this lineup. Brooklyn-based band Donny Hue and the Colors make the type of jangly upbeat psych-pop that would perk up even the most negative of Negative Nancies. Portland-based band Super XX Man will also add to the merry-making with their folk pop melodies.


The Duchess

Opens Friday at the Varsity Theatre on Second Street

Tabloid fodder all around: This film follows the scandals of 18th century English aristocrat Georgiana Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire.


Opens Friday at the Regal Davis Stadium 5 on G Street

Clint Eastwood directed this drama set in the late20s, which follows a single mother (played by Angelina Jolie) and the search for her missing son.

The Haunting of Molly Hartley

Opens Friday at the Regal Davis Stadium 6 on F Street

Mom doesn’t always know best: Sure, her parents did it to save her life and all, but a pact with the devil? Sounds suspicious.


Clarence Major

Wednesday, 9 p.m.

Bistro 33

Poet, novelist and painterUC Davis English professor emeritus Clarence Major is a triple threat! Witness the man himself as he reads works from his latest publication, Myself Painting: Poems.

Haiti’s Hope – Shada’s Story
