OK, so I don’t know if Ray Bonneville actually drives a Pontiac; but if he doesn’t, then the Canadian-born singer-songwriter is missing out on a gold mine of an endorsement deal. Either way, Bonneville has a hugely popular and influential body of blues and folk music under his belt, and a new album, Easy Gone, that features his moody guitar and soulful lyrics in peak form. This week, Bonneville gives the North Bay a new taste of his impressive blues sound when he performs on Tuesday, June 24, at Sweetwater Music Hall, 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $17. 415.388.1100.

Before he was in the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia spent time in two bands with teenage buddies. The Black Mountain Boys (Jerry, David Nelson and Eric Thompson) got together 51 years ago, and the Asphalt Jungle Mountain Boys (Jerry, Eric Thompson and Jody Stecher) started jamming together 50 years ago. Now the remaining boys are uniting forces for a reunion of sorts, and throwing fiddle master Paul Shelasky into the mix when they play together as the Black Mountain Asphalt Boys. Their bluegrass sound and keen musicianship is on display Friday, June 20, at the Dance Palace, 503 B St., Point Reyes Station. 8pm. $22. 415.663.1075.

Oakland alternative rock group MoeTar thrives on contradiction. Vocalist Moorea Dickason and songwriter Tarik Ragab founded the group in 2008 intent on mashing up paradoxical elements with experimental flair. Their debut album, From These Small Seeds, proved that disparate sounding music could also be cohesive, even catchy. MoeTar’s eclectic sound, which mixes progressive rock with electronica and pop, is at once complex and subtle, a unique combination in a world of easily-classifiable sound. MoeTar plays Thursday, May 29, at Fenix, 919 Fourth St, San Rafael. 8pm. $10. 415.813.5600.
