Richie Furay Band


6:30 p.m. Aug. 21


For his years spent rollicking alongside Neil Young and Stephen Stills, you may call him the “lesser known” member of the iconic Buffalo Springfield, just don’t call Richie Furay the “forgotten one.” Also a member of the popular Poco, the “Kind Woman” scribe and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member has carved out his own niche over the last five decades, all the way up to this year’s release of “Hand in Hand,” his first record in eight years. After a change in lineup, See How They Run, featuring Sacramento natives Adrian Bourgeois and Ricky Berger, will also play. Doors 5:30 p.m. 2708 J St., Sacramento. $37.50-$40.

Nick Waterhouse

Rock/R&B/vintage pop

8 p.m. Aug. 25


A hotly received veteran of last year’s TBD Fest, Southern California native Nick Waterhouse makes no qualms about being a huge Van Morrison fan. But he’s taken that Van-love and thrown it back to the swinging martini-shaking lounges of the Sunset Strip, circa late 1950s, ginning up a frisky and authentic platter of pop, rock and R&B. 7 p.m. doors. 2708 J St., Sacramento. $18.



9 p.m. Aug. 26

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

Try the sweet, wafting and emotionally spacious indie pop from Real Estate guitarist Matthew Mondanile. Ducktails, for Mondanile, is a side project equally delectable as his main gig. With Regal Degal. 129 E St., Davis. $10. www.sophiasthai

Looking ahead: Graham Parker. Sept. 18 at 24th St. Theatre

If you saw “This Is 40,” you know him. If you know your British rock history, you already knew. Parker performs as a duo with Brinsley Schwarz. 2791 24th St., Sacramento. $37.50-$40. www.swell-produc
