Sat., July 06, Cave Women
Harlow's Restaurant & Nightcub, 6 p.m., $8-$10
The members of Cave Women exude sounds inspired from around the world with an African, Latin and light-jazzy flair. Their style is particularly fitting as coffee-shop background music while fancy, blended beverages are made. Between the five ladies, a diverse array of instruments are used to create their aesthetic. Flute, accordion and even the soft plucks from a thumb piano are all present, guiding each song from beginning to end. These women have kept busy, releasing their debut self-titled album last year and are now celebrating the release of a nine-track follow-up album on a bill also featuring XD 7 and the Element Brass Band. 2708 J Street, www.cavewomenmusic.com.
