Feb. 29: King — Fans of the ultra-melodic soul trio King should get an award for patiently awaiting the release of the band’s first full-length album, “We Are King.” I mean, it seems like it took the group — made up of sisters Paris and Amber Strother and “musical sister” Anita Bias — like, forever to get back on the scene with new music since they took the world by storm via their first EP, “The Story.” So we can all thank the creator for the chance to jump ear-deep into more of King’s dreamy harmonies and vibey soundscapes. And to celebrate the release of “We Are King,” the crew has hit the road once again, with plans to invade Atlanta tonight. Expect to hear plenty of that new-new, but I’m sure audience members who’ve been riding with them since 2011 will be treated to renditions of early cuts like “Hey” and “Supernatural.” Bring your rumps. $15-$20. 7 p.m. Vinyl, 1374 West Peachtree Street. www. centerstage-atlanta.com.

Jan. 21: Fernanda Noronha — Brazilian-born, Atlanta-based singer Fernanda Noronha is the living embodiment of the “soul bossa” sound, seamlessly mixing jazz with samba, R&B and more. And she’s bringing her award-winning original songs and select covers to Sandy Springs for a night she’s dubbing “Made in Brazil.” $10. 8 p.m. Steve’s Live Music, 234 Hilderbrand Drive, Sandy Springs. www. steveslivemusic.com.

Jan. 22: All Cows Eat Grass Dance Party: Bae Edition — According to event organizers, you’re invited to: “Come dance with us as the ladies of #BaeATL fill the air with sugar, spice, and everything nice” — featuring music by All Cows Eat Grass, Mikoteau (Mikkoh & Decoteau) and DJ Ohso. $10. 9 p.m. The Basement, 1245 Glenwood Avenue SE. www. basementatl.com.

Jan. 23: Get Brunch — Dope DJs and mimosas collide at this weekly music-centric feast. Y’all know: Brunch is serious in Atlanta. Come get your eat on and shake your ass at the same damn time. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. BQE Restaurant & Lounge, 262 Edgewood Avenue. www.getbrunchatl.com.

Feb. 5: Waking Astronomer — Check this month’s cover story for more on Waking Astronomer, and then check out the group (along with special guests RBTS WIN, Ancestor_, TheyungMatthew and Divine Interface) in action at its album release party, going down tonight. $8. 9 p.m. The EARL, 488 Flat Shoals Ave SE. www.badearl.com.

Feb. 18: Morgan Heritage, Blackalicious — A lil’ reggae from Morgan Heritage mixed with a dash of hip-hop courtesy of Blackalicious equals one great night of music. $20-$25. 8 p.m. Terminal West, 887 West Marietta St., Studio C. www.terminalwestatl.com.

Feb. 19: ATL Dance Sessions — Look, it’s the newest nightlife event from DJ Kemit (see the cover story for more on Kemit).
