Sloslylove

8:30 p.m. • 7th Street Entry • 18-plus • $5

Since coming straight outta Eau Claire, Wis., Sloslylove is perhaps better known for his work in Twin Cities electro-pop stargazers Vandaam. But the real-life Feng Meng Vue has quietly built an interstellar catalog of beats with Dogi and his solo material, culminating with his 2014 album “The Haunted.” With an un-kitschy ’80s aesthetic Com Truise fans can dig and an ear for hip-hop, the budding producer composes dreamy soundscapes for chill-out dance parties. Sayth & Wealthy Relative, North House and Venue Vanity also perform. Michael Rietmulder

 

Ramsey Lewis & Philip Bailey 

7 & 9 p.m. Wed.-next Thu. • Dakota Jazz Club • $45-$70

One of the precious few jazz artists to score multiple radio and jukebox hits (“The In Crowd,” “Wade in the Water”), pianist Ramsey Lewis also employed Maurice White, who would become one of the masterminds of Earth, Wind & Fire, as drummer of his acoustic trio. When Lewis went electric on the 1974 album “Sun Goddess,” he reunited with White and hired several EWF members in his backing band, tearing up the black music charts in the process. The main singer was Philip Bailey, and he and Lewis still play occasional shows, mixing jazz, R&B, gospel and pop. Tom Surowicz
