Friends of Dean Martinez, and Karla Pundit: Tucson's Friends are signed to Sub Pop and play here frequently, so local cocktail-core aficionados are probably familiar with their loving odes to the lounge sounds of yesteryear. Karla Pundit is a more exotic visitor. A former University of Arizona premed student named Lance Kaufman who's now based in Flagstaff, Pundit's stage persona is a drop-dead riff on "genie of the keys" Korla Pandit, the turban-wearing '50s master of magic-carpet organ music. The real guy, Pandit, is still with us, and recently inked a deal with the Sympathy for the Record Industry label; the fake guy, Pundit, is touring behind his latest platter for Dionysus, Journey to the Ancient City. Showtime is 9 p.m. Tuesday, February 4, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. The cover is $6. For details call 265-4842.

Sonny Burgess: The rockabilly singer/guitarist was overshadowed by his Sun Records mates in the '50s, but Sonny's the marquee idol now--or he should be, given the masterful quality of his new, self-titled disc for Rounder. It includes tunes by Bruce Springsteen (the previously unrecorded "Tiger Rose"), Dave Alvin and Chris Gaffney ("Six Nights a Week"), Radney Foster and Mark Sager ("You Tear Me Up"), Steve Forbert ("Catbird Seat") and Henry Gross ("Bigger Than Elvis," which features guest performances by Presley mates Scotty Moore, and the Jordanaires). Elgin opens at 9 p.m. Wednesday, February 5, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. The cover is $6. Call 265-4842.
