Protomartyr

Rock/post-punk

9 p.m. Saturday, March 5

Blue Lamp

As the guitars ramble and the bass lines churn, Detroit’s Protomartyr harnesses the rough-and-tumble grit of the Motor City while buffing out the scuffs with raw Stooges/MC5-flavored rock ’n’ roll. With Chastity Belt and G Green. Doors 8 p.m. 1400 Alhambra Blvd, Sacramento. $12. www.bluelampsacramento.com.

Ensemble Mik Nawooj

Hip-hop/classical

8 p.m. Saturday, March 5

Sol Collective

As the Bee’s Chris Macias wrote last year, Ensemble Mik Nawooj’s repertoire “might bring sneers at a snobby symphony hall,” but an intricate melding of raw hip-hop and classical composition puts this group of emcees, soprano, winds, strings, drums and piano right at home at Sol Collective for the ensemble’s second Sacramento gig. 2574 21st St. $16.50. www.solcollective.org.

Poor Man’s Whiskey

Rock/bluegrass

6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 5

Auburn Event Center

In the wake of Glenn Frey’s death in January, Poor Man’s Whiskey has cooked up a hefty tribute to the songs of the Eagles, which the band will perform for the first time following a set of its own originals. With Edge of the West. 145 Elm Ave., Auburn. $20. www.keepsmilinpromotions.com

Looking ahead: Warren Haynes. March 26 at the Crest Theatre

Some tickets remain for Allman Brothers/Gov’t Mule guitar wizard Warren Haynes with his Ashes & Dust Band, with Jonathan Tyler opening. 1013 K St., Sacramento. $35-$65. www.crestsacramento.com.
