City Music (self-released)
This relatively unknown local band can really play. Although it may be a little twangy for some tastes, those who like this sort of folk/country/blues hybrid will love City Music. The three members play not only guitar but also banjo, harmonium, mandolin, and Tahitian ukulele. Pleasantly rootsy, charmingly sincere, and competently done.
At El Rio (3158 Mission St., San Francisco) on March 3. 8 p.m., $5
