Eight Gigs: Camra

Tues., July 21, 9 p.m., Dive Bar, no cover

Former Sacramento rapper Rasar blew more than a few minds this past May at a sold-out Harlow's show, opening for Joseph in the Well. It had been a couple of years since Rasar and his band Bread Fam had played Sacramento, and they were solid—cool, funky hip-hop grooves mixed with Rasar's rapid fire, brainy flow. He's coming back to town with something a bit different, the more low-key project called Camra, a duo between him and Las Vegas acoustic guitarist and soul singer Cameron Calloway. It's an interesting melding of hip-hop, soul and mellow folk guitar strumming. This is only one of Rasar's many projects—the guy is versatile! 1016 K Street, www.tinyturl.com/camraband.
