Eight Gigs: Beausoleil avec Michael Doucet

Sun., Aug. 21, 7 p.m., Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub, $32.50-$35

BeauSoleil were regulars at the sadly defunct Palms Playhouse, so this show comes as a sweet surprise. This Sunday’s dance party starts early and ends early as the band is being routed into Sacramento by the folks at Swell Productions. As always, the band will be led by fiddler and singer Michael Doucet. Besides being landmark Cajun artists, this group is closing in on 40 years. Bravo! (And for future reference: No word whether Palms Playhouse’s former talent buyer Dave Fleming will be involved with the new owners as the Winters’ venue is pending sale). 2708 J Street, www.beausoleilmusic.com.
