Singer-songwriter Angi West is plenty busy with her day job, which makes it hard enough to schedule a show. But she's also blessed/cursed with a stellar backing group whose many talents keep them on the road with other projects. There's producer/multi-instrumentalist Seth Kauffman (Floating Action, Shannon Whitworth), multi-instrumentalist Michael Libramento (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals) and percussionist Evan Martin (Floating Action). Here's the good news: West has subtitled her upcoming show "The Boys are Back in Town" because 1) they are, and 2) the full lineup will back West as she opens for Gringo Star. "We will be playing some classics, as well as new tunes and some twisted covers," West writes. "I am 100-percent sure this show will be amazing." Emerald Lounge on Friday, Nov. 22. 9 p.m., $7. emeraldlounge.com.
