TUESDAY, JULY 24

REBECCA GATES -- Rebecca Gates collected her fair share of critical hugs and kisses during her time as the centerpiece of the Spinanes, but if you want to know the truth, she deserves even more. On her imminent solo debut, Ruby Series, she wraps her smoky, gin-soaked declarations of lusting and losing in beguiling, loungey, post-rock atmospherics that suggest that as compelling a vocalist as she is, she's an even better songwriter. Echo Lounge (Peisner)

SUN-XING TWO -- In the tradition of John Coltrane and Rashied Ali, multi-instrumentalist Sabir Mateen teams with percussionist Ben Karetnick to produce beautiful, spontaneous music. Mateen plays saxophone in the New York free jazz ensemble Test and Karetnick has spent time studying under free-drumming legend Milford Graves. Worth checking out. Earthshaking Music (Khalid)
