Feb. 11/ The Warhol Sound Series prides itself on its eclectic offerings, and Valerie June is no exception. June describes her style as “organic moonshine roots music,” a blend of country, blues, gospel and folk-pop, infused with her Tennessee roots and studded with surprising sonic delights, such as a dash of ukulele or an unexpected funk riff. These elements, along with her unique voice, elevate June beyond genre to a sound completely her own. (Carnegie Lecture Hall, 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland; 412/237.8300, warhol.org)

Feb. 25/ Consider emerging from your winter hibernation this month and letting Khruangbin steward you towards sunnier emotional climes. The trio from Texas specializes in a warming mix of surf rock and Thai funk, guaranteed to give a slight reprieve from your seasonal sadness.
