Jan. 30

Defined by jam-band inspirations, the Dharma Initiative’s pluralistic approach strives to awaken your inner hippie. The group’s free-floating grooves waft in the air with folk, rock and reggae weaving in and out of each other to achieve a heightened and prolonged state of mellow. Fronted by Zach Moats and Megan Sloggie, the husband-and-wife duo leads the Hampton Roads-based quartet through a song-based survey of pre-and-post Phishisms. Tunes such as the jazzed-up fusion of “Grass is Green” and the Bob Marley-inspired “Hold Your Head Up” are good examples of the group’s need to express multilayered positivity. The Dharma Initiative brings its shakedown streets to the Cary Street Café on Saturday, Jan. 30. Doors open at 10 p.m. Admission is $5. carystreetcafe.com.
