Raphael Saadiq, Sunday, 9:30 p.m., Fischer Green Stage: I didn't give Saadiq's former band, Tony! Toni! Tone!, the time of day, but I can't get enough of his solo work, to which I am still very much a newcomer. It wasn't on the radio, but I'm pretty sure "100 Yard Dash" got me out of bed this morning. Hear it after the jump.
Sheryl Crow, Saturday, 9:15 p.m., Mainstage
: I'm curious.
Cave Singers, Monday, 6:45 p.m., Starbucks Stage
: It's been said many time, many ways that Cave Singers are the best band in town right now. I'm not sure I disagree. And since the first time I hear "Beach House," the first single off their new album, Welcome Joy, I'm pretty sure I've listened to it every day. Jury's still out on the whole record.
