The Let Up
Queen West duo’s moody electronic R&B confections invariably leave you wanting more — check out the superior ‘Remember, Breathe’ from their recent release below if you want a taste — so here’s a chance for that. With Emorie, Noah Pascoe, the Pink Pearl Dragon. The Annex Live, doors 9 p.m.
“Pony”/ “Ni**** In Paris”
It’s been a while since he was topping the R&B charts, but he’s still capable of generating swoons and singalongs, and with a record with TGT mates Tyrese and Tank apparently on the way, never say never. Meantime, the crooner checks in solo, joined by Bobby V. Sound Academy, doors 8 p.m.
“Love Me Deeply”
Uniquely talented multi-instrument playin’ singer-songwriter with a huge voice mixes folk with klezmer, jazz, gypsy, blues. She’s got the whole package, then, and it’ll no doubt be on full display for this CD release party and collaboration with dancer Davy Bisaro and the Annex String Quartet. Hugh’s Room, 8:30 p.m.
