Black Tusk

Wild Child
This poppy indie rock collective from Texas is anchored by the clear, ringing vocals of Kelsey Wilson – which makes local Laney Jones the perfect support for this show.

This Tallahassee project blends the sounds of '70s funk and jazz with modern experimental pop, creating a chocolate-in-your-peanut-butter situation that's just as unexpectedly delicious.
10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, at Spacebar, $5

The Z.G.s
