Sat., March 23, Tel Cairo
Blue Lamp, 9 p.m., $7
Lo-fi hip-hop duo Tel Cairo has been busy collaborating with a variety of Sacramento musicians for its newest album Voice of Reason, due to be released on April 16. Band members Cameron Others and 7evin called upon the talents of Terra Lopez from Sister Crayon as well as hip-hop artists Tais, Mahtie Bush and members of Tribe of Levi to pack this 11-track concept album full of surprises. Since Tel Cairo's record-release party isn't until April 4 (at Midtown BarFly), join the group this Saturday with rock 'n' roll three-piece Lonely Kings and Fly High. Who knows, maybe Tel Cairo will perform a song from its upcoming album? 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, www.telcairo.com.
