Left Coast Country
9 p.m. Wednesday,
These fellas of the Portland “newgrass” act Left Coast Country certainly know how to write enigmatic, bluesy and Appalachian-flavored tunes with wisps of outlaw country, and they play it like the only party in the world worth going to is the one that happens on their front porch when good friends show up. 904 15th St., Sacramento. $5. www.torchclub.net.
8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18

With Cellar Doors. 1517 21st St., Sacramento. $12 advance, $15 at the door. www.starlitelounge.net.
