Also offering new wax is TJ Dovebelly, whose latest daring act of eight-track deconstruction opens to the public on Saturday, May 25, at Davey's Uptown; soul spinners Super Wolf and Memphis Black get early arrivals funked up.

Finally, Eric (not Mardis again; this is a propulsive rock trio) headlines a Zone Monday show at the Grand Emporium on May 27.
