Inspired by his refreshment of choice back in the day when he was trying to make it as a street musician in Boston, G. Love’s latest offering, Lemonade, is a back-to-basics album that symbolizes the “simple and great” times of loungin’ on the front porch and writing songs. What it means for fans of the man and his saucy band is a refreshing blast of bluesy hip-hop in an intimate setting. G. Love & Special Sauce hit WOW Hall with openers Redeye Empire at 7:30pm Thursday, Feb. 25. $20 adv., $25 door; tickets at http://wkly.ws/d8



In a career spanning four decades, vocalist Maria Muldaur has collaborated with the likes of Taj Mahal, David Grisman, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez and Eugene’s own Kit Stovepipe. Mudaur’s latest project is her “Garden of Joy,” which brings her back to her jug-band roots. The Conjugal Visitors join Muldaur at 7pm Sunday, Feb. 28, for a KRVM-FM fundraiser at WOW Hall. $18 adv., $20 door, $25 reserved; tickets at http://wkly.ws/d7
