Local favorite Jason Burke draws from a broad range of influences, such as James Taylor, AC/DC and The Beatles, to create what he describes as a “California country sound.” His latest album, Burning Daylight, pulls jazz, blues and soul into the mix. Burke (who’s a big promoter of local musicians) had a setback due to illness this spring, and the music community rallied to get him back on stage, re-energized to promote the new effort.

Saturday 8/6 $8-10, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 First St. S. 977-5590.
