Three to See: The Lique, Dangermuffin, Secretions

The Lique with Zyah Belle


9 p.m. Friday, July 8


Sharp-dressed funk-and-jazz act the Lique – fronted by rapper Rasar Amani– played District 30 in March and it was a show for the ages – a genre-spanning, boundary-testing onslaught of soul that featured a who’s who of Sacramento musicians getting in on the act, including upstart songstress Zyah Belle, this evening’s headliner. Don’t miss this return gig. Doors 8 p.m. 2708 J St., Sacramento. $15.



8 p.m. Friday, July 8

Auburn State Theatre

Hailing from Folly Beach, S.C., jam band Dangermuffin brings to mind both the Grateful Dead and Old and in the Way, with spiraling tendrils of organic roots rock wrapping around audiences and pulling them into songs inspired by mountain bluegrass, island reggae and more. 985 Lincoln Way, Auburn. $24 advance/$26 door.
