G. LOVE AND SPECIAL SAUCE: So many great sounds have started and/or blossomed in Philadelphia, including the kind of easy-breezy hip-hop purveyed by this three-man outfit. What's the trademark of the sound? A definitely bluesy vibe. Catch the tuneful triumvirate at House of Blues Sunset Strip, along with Eric Hutchinson, on Saturday, March 7. 8430 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood. 323-848-5100
ALSO ON MARCH 7: "ASSSSCAT" and "You Bet Your Life with Jimmy Pardo" rollick it up at Upright Citizens Brigade; Bootie LA shakes-it-shakes-it at The Echo; super-smooth '70s superstar Kenny Loggins is all right at Segerstrom Hall; and "Scream" yukster Jamie Kennedy struts the stage at the Improv in Hollywood.
