 ALLISON SATTINGER, WEDNESDAY AT THE PERFORMANCE LOFT

Sweet-voiced, piano-plinking chanteuse reminds you of a more lofty, soulful Patty Griffin, with the songs to match. If you miss her, she’ll also be at Back to the Grind on Feb. 24. www.performanceloft.org; www.myspace.com/allisonsattinger.

The Performance Loft, 345 N. 5th St., Redlands, (909) 748-6262.

 

STYX, FEBRUARY 22 AT PECHANGA RESORT & CASINO

Duuude! “Come Sail Awaaay!” www.pechanga.com/home.asp.

Pechanga Resort & Casino, 45000 Pechanga Pkwy., Temecula.

 

THE GRAMMY AWARDS

The music industry’s annual Celebration of the Mediocre came and went Sunday, convincing us even more that Coachella can’t get here fast enough.

 

THE BIG ORGAN TRIO, FRIDAY AT TREMORS

Ignore the moniker’s blatant double-entendre—unless it’s only us with the filthy dirty mind—this smokin’ hot combo would be rightly worshipped if it was just one guy wailing away on a Hammond B-3, but they’re so much more, fusing sax bleats and groovy funk lines onto something that approaches Ornette Coleman or John Zorn’s more psychedelic excursions, but with way more ass-wiggling potential. Just don’t listen too closely—this stuff’ll melt your ears, and then your mind. www.myspace.com/bigorgantrio.

Tremors, 1329 University Ave., Riverside, (951) 683-3060. $10.

 

THE KNIGHT OF SHORTS FILM FESTIVAL, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AT THE COFFEE DEPOT

Not really music per se, but some of these have to have a soundtrack of sorts, right? The idea here is that you have a bunch of film shorts arranged into different categories (drama, family, comedy, horror and experimental), then the audience votes on their faves, and the victorious flicks move on to other rounds until Taylor Hicks gets crowned the winner. Or something like that. Actually, the winning film will be “knighted,” which should be worth sticking around to see, even if it means slogging through shorts with titles like Cannibal Maniac and Back Alley Butcher, which for all we know could be the Citizen Kane of gore extravaganzas. Please show up, because nobody wins if nobody’s there to vote, y’know? www.knightofshorts.com.

The Coffee Depot, 3204 Mission Inn Ave., Riverside, (909) 222-2263. $8 per day.

 

GUTTERMOUTH, FRIDAY AT THE VIBE

Poor Guttermouth—still haunted by that fracas they caused at what was then the Blockbuster Pavilion over a decade ago. Or not. Not-half-bad punk rock as played by a bunch of elderly Orange County Republicans, if you’re into that. Or you could just stay home and read their Wikipedia entry, which some would argue is all you need to know because you don’t have to actually listen to their tunes. Anyway . . . www.xxx-guttermouth-xxx.com.

The Vibe, 1805 University Ave., Riverside, (909) 518-5010. $15.
