Eight Gigs: Poppet

Sat., May 21, 3 p.m., Warehouse Artists Lofts, no cover

Your quadrant of Midtown is not legit if it lacks a street party—that’s the new rule in Sacramento 3.0. WAL is shutting down a block of the R Street Corridor to erect a stage where funkified groove theorists Ideateam will be joined by the Met High School Band, folk-rock maven Sea of Bees and baroque-pop wonder Poppet (pictured). Two words for the lineup: local, dynamic. But, it will be Sea of Bees and Poppet that will be delivering the most transcendental performances. Each singer wields impressive pipes, uncommon abandon and intensity in performance that will arrest the party. 1104 R Street, www.poppet.us.
