Jeremy Enigk: Cultish Seattle act Sunny Day Real Estate ended on a stormy note in '95, but there've been bright spots in the band's breakdown. The Sunny Day rhythm section's now keeping the beat for Foo Fighters, and SDRE's former leader, the infamously born-again Enigk (pronounced "Ee-nick"), has concocted a new sound that's sort of a hybrid of Emo and orchestral strains; Enigk's bio describes it as "a cross of Nick Drake and John Lennon immaculately produced by George Martin." Touring in support of his solo debut, Return of the Frog Queen, Enigk performs Saturday, March 1, at Hollywood Alley, 2610 West Baseline in Mesa. Red Red Meat shares the stage. The all-ages show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $8, available at Tempe's Stinkweeds Record Exchange (968-9490) and Eastside Records (968-2011). For general information, call 820-7117.

Joshua Redman Quintet: Redman is one of contemporary jazz's shooting stars. The son of former Ornette Coleman sideman Dewey Redman plays a wizened sax that belies his still-tender years. Joshua brings his group back to the Valley on Saturday, March 1, for a gig at Scottsdale Center for the Arts, 7380 East Second Street. Showtime is 8 p.m.; a free lecture by Patricia Myers precedes at 7 in the center's Cinema. Concert tickets are $20 and $25, available at the scene and Ticketmaster; call 994-2787 or 784-4444.

Cibo Matto: Japanese riot grrrls Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda just want to have fun with their stupid-power-ballad pop, English-challenged hip-hop and generally absurdist world view.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Monday, March 3, at Gibson's, 410 South Mill in Tempe. Tickets are $6 in advance, $7 the day of the show, available at Ticketmaster. For details call 967-1234 or 784-4444.
