Music

Kelly Richey: When the Cincinnati blues-rock guitarist comes to the Bamboo Room on Friday, she will bring a riff-laden set of new material from her latest album, "Sweet Spirit," released in March. The 10-track release is a tight, muscular album stamped with Richey's alto growl, blistering bass lines and drum solos, all produced by the Kelly Richey Band's new lineup of Jyn Yates (the drummer) and Freekbass (yes, the bassist). The power trio will perform at 9 p.m. $15. 561-585-2583 or Bamboorm.com. — Phillip Valys

The Supervillains: On the swamp-reggae group's latest album, "Volume 8," Orlando's Supervillains deliver a properly funky cover of the Pixies' "Where Is My Mind?" a thoughtful hybrid of riddim, bongos and, of course, vocalist-drummer Dominic Maresco doing his best Black Francis. The four-piece has been producing its distinctive ska-punk since 1998, save the occasional alt-rock diversion, and it will stop by the Culture Room Friday night to promote its new release. Stop the Presses and Wraps and Kush will open. 7:30 p.m. $13. 954-564-1074 or CultureRoom.net. — Phillip Valys

The cultural dance troupe is backed by London, a dance professor at the New World School of the Arts. $15-$35. 305-949-6722 or ArshtCenter.org. — Phillip Valys
