Roots of Orchis 

9 p.m. Sunday, April 3, $7 at the Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd.), with the Six Parts Seven and Sleeping Kings of Iona. Also: 9:30 p.m. Monday, April 4, at the Lime Spider (207 S. Main St., Akron), with Genetically Yours and Your Friend.

San Diego's Roots of Orchis plays experimental music, but it's a listenable kind of experimental. Influenced by hip-hop, indie rock, and dub reggae, their infectious grooves are built around big beats, hooky samples, and melodic exchanges between two bassists.
