Highlights

Naive Melodies at Liquid Lounge

Talking Heads ruled. Formed in 1975 in New York City, they were credible punk rockers, forward-thinking New Wavers, and omnivorous music junkies who regularly flexed their funk and world-beat muscles to keep things interesting. And as if that left-of-center blend wasn't enough, they scored a bunch of MTV hits in the mid 1980s. Can you imagine that happening now? (No.) Anyway, Naive Melodies is a trio from Northern California that plays Talking Heads covers, and plays them well. They'll do so tonight at Liquid Lounge as part of Parallel 44 Presents' Volcanic Funk series. Details below.

Local lineup at M&J Tavern

Three of the best roots-leaning bands in town will gather at M&J Tavern on Saturday night for some beer-soaked fun. The lineup includes alt-country howlers Harley Bourbon, shadowy surf-rockers Shade 13, and Blackflowers Blacksun, the stark-raving-slide-blues project of Greg Bryce. This will be one of the last times you can see Bryce go wild before he makes his annual trip back to Alaska for spring and summer. Details below.
