Fri., July 26, Salt Wizard
Shine, 8 p.m., $5
Multi-instrumental duo Har-di-Har hails from Iowa with a sound as big as the heartland. On songs like “Once Branches,” Celtic influences mix with a style that reaches back to Joni Mitchell—a perfect complement to the self-described “magic folk” sound of West Sacramento-based quartet Salt Wizard (pictured), comprised of Rachel Lomax, Eric Warren and Anthony Ordonez of E-Squared, and Ron Melcer of the Neighbors. Listen for an infusion of jazz behind Lomax's sultry voice on “Subtle Beast,” but be prepared to hear surf rock on the dark side featuring the band's signature thought-provoking lyrics. Acoustic pop singer-songwriter duos Olla and Amber & Adam will also perform. 1400 E Street, www.facebook.com/saltwizard.
