Angel Bat Dawid at ICA at VCU on Friday, Nov. 4

She played Carnegie Hall as part of the big Afrofuturism festival earlier this year, now you get to see her perform for free in the intimate space of Richmond’s newest modern art museum on First Friday. A composer, clarinetist, pianist, vocalist, producer, educator and deejay, Angel Bat Dawid will bring her own unique brand of free jazz and will be joined by Virginia-based artist JJJJJerome Ellis for an evening performance of “music, poetry and mysticism.” If you’re a fan of artists like Sun Ra or Alice Coltrane, you probably don’t want to sleep on this one. 7:30 to 9 p.m. Make reservations here.

King Sababa at Bryan Park Bar and Grill on Friday, Nov. 4

Looking for something different? Want to start your weekend with a chill, expansive head space? How about a local band playing what it describes as “irie dubbed-out jams that meet the east of the Nile sound with ancient Jewish melodies”? Check out the video below for a sample. Then head over to Bryan Park Bar and Grill at 5516 Lakeside Ave. from 8 to 11 p.m.

Pentagram, Loud Night, and Public Acid at Cobra Cabana on Wednesday, Nov. 9

Dude. Pentagram, the doom metal pioneers from Alexandria, are doing a short American tour to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary and lo and behold, one of Richmond’s coolest bars and restaurants made the cut. If you saw the documentary, “Last Days Here,” then you’re familiar with the ongoing struggles of lead singer Bobby Liebling, who sold his soul to the devil and has been trying to get it back for years. It appears, for now, that he’s back on track and will be leading the band through its hard-rocking classics that, if you haven’t heard the music, fans of OG metal groups like Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Blue Cheer would likely love. Also on this raging bill, Richmond’s own Loud Night and North Carolina’s Public Acid. Sure to rip your Wednesday night to shreds. $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Go here for tix.
