Martin Luther

When: Wed., Feb. 20, 8 & 10 p.m. 2008

Husky Bay Area crooner Martin Luther proclaims himself a former choir boy, though he has since forayed into Dave Matthews-style rock with extra distortion and all the wah-wah sounds you would hear on a '70s Meters record. Probably most at home in San Francisco's Independent club (where he played a wrangling set at Sterling James' 20th anniversary celebration last October, even after one of stage speakers burst into flames), Luther promises to switch up the game for Wednesday, Feb. 20's performance at Yoshi's (510 Embarcadero West, Oakland), dubbed "An Evening of Elegance." 8 p.m., $16; 10 p.m., $10.
