2. Carrie Rodriguez Laboratorio with Ruben Ramos at Cactus Cafe
8:30 p.m. March 6. $22-$25. 2247 Guadalupe St. cactuscafe.org.
Violinist and singer-songwriter Rodriguez’s monthly Cactus show is special enough with her regular supporting cast: bassist Roscoe Beck, keyboardist Michael Ramos, guitarist David Pulkingham and drummer Alex Marrero. But she’s gone way-over-the-top in the best way with this month’s special guest: It’s Ruben Ramos, Grammy-winning leader of Tejano group the Mexican Revolution and member of the all-star ensemble Los Super Seven. — Peter Blackstock
