THURSDAY

IAM MOORE AND THE LOSSY COILS

Moore’s sensational songwriting and deliciously upbeat pop-rock sound made him one of the most popular acts in Austin, Texas. Lately, he’s been living in Seattle, keeping very busy writing and recording (his latest EP, ‘Strange Days,’ is loads of superbly crafted slightly-psychedelic, full-throttle fun), and constantly touring with the likes of Bob Dylan, ZZ Top, and the Rolling Stones. His full band, The Lossy Coils, will accompany him on his appearance this weekend at The Big Easy, 128 American Alley. 8 p.m. (Doors open for dinner at 6:30 p.m.). $10. BigEasyPetaluma.com.

FRIDAY

NEIL FONTANO

Classy touches don’t get much classier than the addition of pianist Neil Fontano to the Friday and Saturday night dinner-time experience at Petaluma’s already-pretty-classy 256 North restaurant. Fontano, a young local player with some dazzling musical chops, has taken to entertaining diners on weekends, playing away on the eatery’s baby grand piano, in a little pop-up lounge area surrounded by sofas. With loads of creative energy and oodles of charm, Fontano performs an array of tunes from popular to classical, and is gradually establishing himself as a significant draw to the relatively new (did we say classy?) downtown establishment. 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays. 256 North, 256 N. Petaluma Blvd. 256North.com.

LIGHT RAIN

Throughout the Middle Eastern music and belly dance community — both locally and abroad — the band Light Rain is renowned for its electric performances of Middle Eastern music with a modern twist. The acclaimed ensemble will appear at Petaluma’s Body Loom, along with belly dance performers Rebecca Vasile and Lilly Goessling, and members of the magnificent Bellydance Superstars. $20-$25. 7:00 p.m. The Body Loom, 405 E. D St. suite G. 707-306-0460 or bodyloom@gmail.com.

Twin Oaks Roadhouse, 5745 Old Redwood Hwy., Penngrove. TwinOaksRoadhouse.com.

HOUSE OF FLOYD

This popular Pink Floyd tribute band, based in San Francisco, has built an enormous following with its trippy, enthusiastic live shows, incorporating covers from deep in Pink Floyd’s early career to the iconic band’s most popular songs. 8:30 p.m. $20-$25.
