Cris Jacobs Band
Singer-guitarist Cris Jacobs has been a staple of Baltimore’s music scene for nearly two decades, and his new album, “Color Where You Are,” might be his finest yet. Propelled by the bouncy, soulful “Painted Roads,” the record, which drops Friday, finds Jacobs embracing modern Americana. Some songs lean country (“Afterglow”), others are heavy on guitar (“Under the Big Top”). The best, like standout “Buffalo Girl,” are unmistakably him. On Saturday, he celebrates the release in D.C. Pearl Street Warehouse, 33 Pearl St. SW; Sat., 8: 15 p.m., $15-$17.
