Carrie Rodriguez

and Luke Jacobs

Fri 8 p.m. Evening Muse, 3227 N. Davidson St. $15. www.eveningmuse.com.

The Texan fiddler and singer-songwriter (“Give Me All You Got,” one of the Americana Music Association’s Top 10 albums of 2013) teams with Jacobs, who fills out her sound with harmonies, guitar, lap steel and harmonica.

The Hot Gates

Fri 8 p.m. Visulite Theatre, 1615 Elizabeth Ave. $8. www.visulite.com.

It’s a good night for eclectic local talent, with talented songwriter/former Noises 10 frontman Jason Scavone’s pop-rock band leading the pack. The Business People and Americana songwriter Bart Lattimore round out the bill.

Nikki Hill

Fri 10 p.m. Snug Harbor, 1228 Gordon St. $5. www.snugrock.com.

The Durham soul singer’s voice and delivery can stop listeners in their tracks. Backed by a band that can channel raw ’60s Beatles, gritty garage rock or Stax soul, Hill – who recently toured Europe – is the real deal.

Dead 27s

Fri 10 p.m. Double Door Inn, 1218 Charlottetown Ave. $5-$7. www.doubledoorinn.com.

The soulful, bluesy combo (and former band of “American Idol” season 11 alum Elise Testone) became a favorite in its native Charleston with soul-meets-Black Crowes swagger. Its debut EP drops next week.

Husky Burnette

Fri 10:30 p.m. Evening Muse, 3227 N. Davidson St. $5-$7. www.eveningmuse.com.

With a gravelly voice reminiscent of Wolfman Jack, the gritty Chattanooga, Tenn., bluesman makes gnarly electric blues that shifts between the heart and heft of the Mississippi Delta and the funky, indelible riffs of early ZZ Top.

Jucifer

Sun 9 p.m., The Milestone Club, 3400 Tuckaseegee Road. $8-$10. www.themilestoneclub.com.

The married Florida duo – which celebrated its band’s 20th anniversary in 2013 – may be the loudest act this side of Motorhead, but it’s also more eclectic than the blaring live shows and the sludge-metal tag implies.

Walk Off the Earth

Tue 7 p.m. Amos’ Southend, 1423 S. Tryon St. $20-$25. www.amossouthend.com.

This Canadian pop-rock outfit manages to tap into two current musical trends, delivering anthemic sing-alongs reminiscent of the Lumineers and the danceable beats and radio-ready pop of groups like Capital Cities.
