Galactic Into the Deep Tour with The Record Company
Tuesday, March 1
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
It’s been more than 20 years since Ben Ellman, Robert Mercurio, Stanton Moore, Jeff Raines and Rich Vogel began exploring the seemingly limitless musical possibilities born out of their work together as Galactic. Since then, the seminal New Orleans band has consistently pushed artistic boundaries on the road and in the studio, approaching music with open ears and drawing inspiration as much from the sounds bubbling up from their city’s streets as they do from each other. On its latest album “Into the Deep,” the band members look within themselves instead, drawing inspiration from people and ideas that have long been close to their hearts – and, in turn, close to the development of their unique sound. Shot through with soul, funk, blues and rock, the result is an organic riff on elements of Galactic’s past, filtered through the lens of where the band is headed in 2015.

Gary Clark Jr. The Story of Sonny Boy Slim Tour
Saturday, March 12
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Ever since 2010, when Gary Clark Jr. wowed audiences with electrifying live sets everywhere from the Crossroads Festival to Hollywood’s historic Hotel Café, his modus operandi has remained crystal clear: “I listen to everything…so I want to play everything.” The revelation that is the Austin-born virtuoso guitarist, vocalist and songwriter finds him just as much an amalgamation of his myriad influences and inspirations. Anyone who gravitated towards Clark’s 2011 “Bright Lights” EP, heard both the evolution of rock and roll and a savior of blues. The following year’s full-length debut, “Blak And Blu,” illuminated Clark’s vast spectrum. “Please Come Home” is reminiscent of Smokey Robinson, while “Ain’t Messin’ Around” recalls Sly and the Family Stone. 2014’s double disc “Gary Clark Jr–Live” projected Clark into 3D by adding palpable dimension and transcendent power –– songs soared and drifted from the epic, psychedelic-blues of “When My Train Comes In” to his anthemic, hip-hop, rock-crunch calling card, “Bright Lights,” all the way down to the deep, dark, muddy water of “When The Sun Goes Down.” In September, Gary Clark Jr. released “The Story of Sonny Boy Slim.”
