Fulkerson & Clarke, $5, 8 p.m., Dec. 27

Shine, 8 p.m., $5

Part of the charm of Fulkerson & Clarke used to be how incomplete their music was. As just a duo, everything fell on their shoulders: Catlin Clarke played guitar, Fred Fulkerson played bass, both of them sang lead vocals and their voices contrasted in the biggest way possible. Without anything extra in the mix, their talent shined through (they met at Sacramento State University in 2006 studying music, after all). The band currently resides in Hollywood, and recently added drums and keys to the mix—rounding out the original jazz, pop, blues, folk and soul influences with a little rock as well. 1400 E Street, www.facebook.com/FulkersonandClarke.
