Get Your Licks
Bay Area music legends Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks bring their signature jazz ’n’ jive sound to Alamo’s Wesley Center this month. Rock fans remember Hicks from the Charlatans, one of the top psychedelic bands from Haight-Ashbury’s glory days. The ever-eclectic singer has since mellowed, and his new CD—Selected Shorts, from which he will premiere tunes—features performances by Jimmy Buffett and Willie Nelson. And don’t make excuses about having to get a sitter; the venue has free on-site child care for ages four and up (reservations required, call 925-837-5243).
Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks, Saturday, April 22, 8 p.m., Wesley Center, 902 Danville Blvd., Alamo. For tickets ($25 in advance, $30 at the door), call (866) 468-3399 or go to www.communityconcerts.com.
