East Bay Folk-Funk 

The Shelly Doty X-tet

Oakland singer-songwriter Shelley Doty is comfortable with blues, rock, jazz, folk, funk, and R&B, combining them all in the music she plays in the Shelly Doty X-tet. The "X" in the band name refers to the unknown; members and genres cycle frequently according to Doty's mood and the venue. Despite her own impressive chops, she gives her musicians ample opportunity to show off their skills with quirky arrangements likely to spin off in unexpected directions. Saturday, May 12 at the Starry Plough. 9:30 p.m., $8. StarryPloughPub.com
