10 p.m., Juanita's. $20-$40.

Upscale Underground keeps the neo-soul hit parade moving through. The latest installment of the “Soul'd Out” concert series finds the local promoters booking, for the first time, a female headliner. A native of Cleveland, Conya Doss started singing at a young age and attended the prestigious Cleveland School of the Performing Arts. After school, she formed the R&B duo Lyrik with a childhood friend. When the duo split, Doss launched her solo career, steadily building her fan base with a silky jazz-soul delivery and constant touring. Saturday night's appearance finds Doss touring in support of her 2008 independent release, “Still,” a confident and vigorous album that could tip Doss into the mainstream. Local soul standout Rodney Blocks opens with his band.
