Isis Restaurant & Music Hall may burst at the seams from the sheer magnitude of earthy live music it’s hosting Thursday, Sept. 3. Asheville-based West African roots band Les Amis (featuring members of Toubab Krewe and Zansa) play an acoustic show in the upstairs seated lounge at 7 p.m. ($7) before soothing rockers Dangermuffin and Weather and Waves (Perpetual Groove frontman Brock Butler’s Americana side project) take over the main hall downstairs at 8:30 p.m. ($10/$12). After acoustic and electric sets, the two roots-inspired groups plan to treat the audience to a sonic nightcap — a collaborative jam — on the house. Meanwhile, local jazz musicians Micah Thomas and Danny Iannucci will serenade passers-by from the venue’s covered patio (free).
