Toubab Krewe, Marco Benevento 

When: Fri., March 30, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15

Asheville quintet Toubab Krewe's energetic, earthy jams intermingle traditional West African strings and hand percussion with Westernized drums, electric guitar and bass. The progressive group's lively, complex instrumentals follow suit, crossing Afropop rhythms with elements of Southern rock, blues and jazz in a more adventurous manner than most acts on the jam circuit. Pianist and organist Marco Benevento of Garage A Trois and the Benevento/ Russo Duo opens with his own three-piece outfit, which skews more heavily toward the ambitious jazz that Benevento's other, jammier projects stir in their pots. Tickets are $15 for the 9 p.m. show. —Spencer Griffith
