Fri., March 15, Keri Carr Band
Torch Club, 9 p.m., $8
Former Rowdy Kate frontwoman Keri Carr has found a new place as vocalist for the Keri Carr Band, and this six-piece always encourages dancing during its sets. Formed in 2011, the band performs a mixture of blues, Americana, and '70s-era country tunes, such as Linda Ronstadt's “Dark End of the Street”—and the band is known to toss in some Latin flavor from time to time. Carr and her band released a self-titled EP at the Sacramento Music Festival last year, available for purchase at any live performance. Fans of Emmylou Harris or Gram Parsons will find these artists have also influenced the band's music. 904 15th Street, http://tinyurl.com/kericarr.
