Eight Gigs: San Kazakgascar
Thu., Jan. 14, 5 p.m., Crocker Art Museum, $10
San Kazakgascar will be at this month’s Art Mix: Mystique to add mystical ambiance with sprawling musical landscapes harkening back to ’60s classic psychedelia with some Middle Eastern/Indian flourishes that make the music both entrancing and danceable. Earlier this year, San Kazakgascar did some of its own inner exploration and growth with a new 7-inch featuring two instrumental songs in a snappier, jazzier direction that still maintains chanting vocals and forward-propelling beats. 216 O Street, www.facebook.com/San-Kazakgascar-216473365058798/?fref=ts.
