Haiti-by-way-of-New Jersey's own one third of '90s supergroup The Fugees, Wyclef Jean visits our little county for an evening of fun at the Mateel tonight at 9 p.m. I can't imagine that I need to introduce him further, so I will only add that good vibes So-Cal duo Culture Crew will open the evening ($40).
Another 4AD band, this one from Toronto, comes to Arcata for a night of unique and skilled pop at 9 p.m. U.S. Girls recently had a neat write-up in The New Yorker featuring its main mind Meg Remy, whose once lo-fi songwriting has become more brilliant and sophisticated in recent years. Local Latin/cumbia rockers La Mancha opens ($12, $10 advance).
