MOSTLY DYLAN Austin singer-songwriter Robin Wiley (pictured) and two-time Grammy-award nominated producer and singer-songwriter Frankie Fuchs who are currently collaborating on a recording project, will pay tribute to Bob Dylan along with a who’s who of Southern California’s singer-songwriters who collectively boast a mile-long laundry list of songwriting and recording credits. They are Bob Jones, Rabbit Mackay, Carl Byron (keyboards) and (everyone’s fingers are crossed) Danny Wilson. Be prepared to hear a few of your favorites from Dylan’s canon, as well as some of his more obscure work and at least one or two anthemic numbers to sing along to.  Saturday, Nov. 28 at Zoey’s Cafe, 451 E. Main St., Ventura. 652-1137, www.zoeyscafe.com

RUSTED ROOT Credited by many as the harbingers of jam music — pre-String Cheese Incident, pre-Dave Matthews Band — Rusted Root made a big impact in the mid-1990s with the hit “Send Me On My Way,” and then sort of faded into the ether, taking only their cult following via sonic rapture. Touring in support of their first record in seven years, Stereo Rodeo, Rusted Root brings a subtle spiritual component to its live shows, something that has undoubtedly, as with U2, kept fans hungry for more. Opening the show is Crowfield with its bluesy, Southern rock reminiscent of the Black Crowes. Thursday, Nov.5 at the Canyon, 28912 Roadside Dr., Agoura Hills. 583-8700,  www.canyonclub.net.

Wednesday, Nov. 11 Keller Williams performs at the Ventura Theater. 

Wednesday’s rawk at the Dirty Vinyl with DJ Missy and DJ Dr. Nick. 

Listen to the nostaligic sounds of Mark Tortoricci & the Hollywood Combo at Yolie’s in Ventura, on Friday, Nov. 6.
