Sun., March 03, G. Love & Special Sauce
Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 8 p.m., $25-$30
If it so happens that you were pining for the freewheeling days of the late '90s and early aughts and had plans to indulge in the harum-scarum, pot-centric alt-rock hip-hop that G. Love & Special Sauce touted for decades, heads up: After hitting it off with the Avett Brothers in 2009, G. Love brought them on to produce his 2011 solo album, Fixin' to Die. The new sound is of the Americana-pop variety—very Avett Brothersesque, one might say—and a marked departure from the shacked-up-on-a-beach Jack Johnson vibe everyone assumed G. Love would continue to carry out long after its expiration date. Singer-songwriter John Fullbright is also on the bill. 2708 J Street, http://philadelphonic.com.
