If music is a gift, Kim Kalman received a major inheritance. Her grandpa, George Kindler, was a band leader with a hot swing band and his own radio show in the 1940s. Known for his riffs on a mean sax, he played it his way. As Kim Kalman rocked her cradle to the big band sounds of her mother’s favorite golden oldies station, WNEW in New Jersey, it became apparent that George Kindler’s granddaughter had inherited his passion for music. Music is in her blood, and Kim plays it her way. She does not fit into a niche. She does not sound like anyone else. Although fully in command of her acoustic guitar, Kim’s voice is the true instrument. Her song selection and interpretation echoes her spirituality as she alternately lifts you, rocks you, soothes and seduces. $10 tickets

The Sweetback Sisters may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to the Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson. Their honky-tonk and western swing tunes touch on subjects of heartbreak, revenge, regret and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wrong—albeit with a contemporary sensibility.
