ERIC ROBERSON/ ALGEBRA BLESSETT
6:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m., Juanita's. $25-$40.

Increasingly the local spot for touring R&B and soul acts, Juanita's brings in a formidable trio for a Friday night double-header. Neo-soul crooner Eric Roberson AKA Erro, fresh off of a Grammy nomination for his (pretty fantastic) single “A Tale of Two,” enjoys a sizeable following not only for his solo albums, but his collaborations with giants of the field like Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Algebra Blessett comes off as a combination of Whitney Houston and Feist, which works better than you might imagine. They're joined by the brassy hums of Sherwood trumpeter Rodney Block. Should be a goody. Shows at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 to get in, $40 for reserved seating and appetizers.
