Where to go. What to hear.



Strike Anywhere and RPG at Alley Katz

Not the same night, mind you, but two of Richmond's musical darlings are playing this week. The peppy post-punk of Strike Anywhere, on tour with With Honor, A Global Threat and Government Warning, comes to Alley Katz March 3 at 6 p.m. $8. RPG's heavy sludge follows up the next day, March 4, at 10 p.m. with The Brought Low, Shame Club, and a Throttlerod CD release. $7. 643-2816.

Trio da Paz at the Singleton Center

Brazilian jazz is seeping into other forms of music, stirring Latin influence into funk, hip-hop and, obviously, regular jazz. Trio da Paz is one of Brazil's most popular jazz groups; formed in the mid-'80s, they subsequently began spreading the music around. VCU brings the trio to the Singleton Center March 6 at 8 p.m. $5. 828-6776.

Col. Bruce Hampton and The CodeTalkers at Cary Street Café

"The Godfather of Southern Alternative Music" returns to Richmond with his comrades in musical psychedelia for two shows, March 5 and 6, at 9 p.m. Even after 40 years of touring, Hampton's shows still have the high-energy feel of a funky sideshow, and Cary Street is no stranger to the blues-friendly jams The CodeTalkers have been working since 1999. $15-$20. 353-7445.
