Never miss a local story.
Lee Gallagher & the Hallelujah
3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23
Someday it will make a cool story that you saw Lee Gallagher & the Hallelujah at a brewery. The psych-soul backbone is penetrating, the blues are primal and the deluge of unfettered rock and roll teems with the raw promise of a boundless future. 27260 Hwy 128, Winters. Free. www.berryessabrewingco.com.
Earles of Newtown
9 p.m. Thursday Jan. 28
One of the gems of the gold country music scene, jazz collective Earles of Newtown peddles perfectly junky juke joint jazz – the kind you’d find in hidden back alley clubs in New Orleans that still require a password and sling a mean mint julep. They’re back at the Torch Club again on April 2. 904 15th St., Sacramento. $6. www.torchclub.net.
Looking ahead: STRFKR. Feb 15 at Ace of Spades
