MUSIC: Antioquia comes by its eclectic sound naturally. The two original members met while in Ecuador, studying drumming and Afro-Columbian folklore, and naturally ended up in San Francisco — because when you’re looking for some flexible musicians, you can’t do better than SoCal. Rebel Fire opens the show tonight at 8 p.m. at Tala Vera (155 State St.), $10-$15. Tala-vera.com.
MUSIC: In roots/American music, I don’t ride the fence — either I like it or I don’t. Well, you can add Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue to the “like” side of the menu. RWB cranks out classic bar-band fare with lyrical depth and guitar-driven heat. Mr. Boneless and The Reactions also appear on the bill, which starts at 8 p.m. at the Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.). $6-$8. Bugjar.com.
MUSIC: Or, if you are looking for some acoustic jazz stylings, head on down to Lemoncello (137 W. Commercial St., East Rochester) to check out local troubadour Jim Lane. Lane is an around-town gigging regular, and if you haven’t had a chance to see him yet, why keep waiting? It’s a free show (he’s there every Wednesday this month, actually). Head out around 7:30 p.m. to catch him and his guitar. Lemoncello137.com.
