Local groove rockers Oleander Tea Company describe their sound as "salty and sweet." Part blues-y, part sultry and all wrapped around the smoky, dusky vocals of frontwoman Melissa Pasciolla. The band reports, "We have new songs to add to our expanding set of original music" — they'll do so at Emerald Lounge on Friday, Oct. 19 when they share the stage with Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons. That band is just back from touring Europe and supporting Norah Jones. 9 p.m., $8. http://www.emeraldlounge.com.
