SquarPeg is a different kind of quartet. With members ranging in provenance from the Eureka Symphony to the European Jazz circuit to Bengal music venues, this group has a mission statement aimed at making chamber music for the 21st century. For only $10 you can experience that sound live at the Fortuna Monday Club at 7:30 p.m. I suspect this show will be pretty special.
Later tonight at the Alibi, a number of very talented women roll out their tunes under the guise of two very different but complementary bands. New York City's Jane Lee Hooker is first and foremost a blues band with the window dressings of a vintage British Invasion band informing its sound. Meanwhile, Beaux Cheveux is a duo made up of Zepparella's drummer Clementine and Adrian from Hell's Belles playing a twangy blissed-out sort of pop music. Just $5 gets you in the door, 11 p.m. is the time to be there.
