Michael Deeds recommends

Thievery Corporation: Tuesday, Revolution Center. Group founders Rob Garza and Eric Hilton have been fusing eclectic world music and retro influences for more than two decades. “Lebanese Blonde” was released in 1997 and still sounds fresh.

Sleepy Sun: Tuesday, Neurolux. If you’re a fan of mind-expanding sonic experiences, you’ll find plenty to appreciate about this San Francisco-based psychedelic-rock band.
