Weekend sounds: Dwele, the Hot at Nights, Algebra, and more

Posted By on Thu, Feb 27, 2014 at 11:52 AM

The weekend is almost upon us, so that means it's time to start searching for cool stuff to get into. Well, if you dig soul and/or jazz you're in luck - there are a gaggle of concerts going down in the city that are worth shelling out cash for. Here's a look at four:

Feb. 28: Dwele, with special guest Rhonda Thomas - This show's a do over from Atlanta's recent snow-down around Valentine's Day weekend. But, any date is a good one to see/hear the hip-hop-soul-tinged crooner Dwele live, especially when he's celebrating the 10th anniversary of his acclaimed album Subject. Plus: He'll be joined by locally based singer Rhonda Thomas, who's got a lot fresh material of her own. $30-$40. 8 p.m. Crown Plaza Ravinia, 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Road.

Feb. 28: The Hot at Nights - The jazz-and-everything-else-flavored trio the Hot at Nights - guided by guitarist Chris Boerner (who often tours with the hip-hop soul duo the Foreign Exchange) - hits Apache Café tonight for what is sure to be a fun, energetic, and slightly off-kilter performance, playing tracks from its latest project ¡Try This!. $10-$25. 8 p.m. Apache Café, 64 E. Third Street.

March 1: Algebra - Here's another show that got rescheduled due to the snow. But, with a lineup of guests that includes singers like Q. Parker from 112, Avery Sunshine, Anthony David, and more, it looks like Algebra (performing songs from her brand-new album Recovery) will be rolling out one can't-miss experience. $25-$30. 7 p.m. Center Stage, 1374 West Peachtree St.

March 1: Jesse Fischer and Friends - Brooklyn-based jazz/funk/more musician is popping into town for a "surprise" performance over on Edgewood Ave. Along for the ride, Fischer's bringing saxophonist Brian Hogans, trombonist/singer Saunders Sermons and more. $15. 7 p.m. Erosol (aka The Department Store), 467 Edgewood Ave.
