Saturday, June 28: Paul Kimbiris & the Paper Stars. 9 p.m. Fox Theatre, 1135 13th St., Boulder, 303-447-0095.

Local songwriter Paul Kimbiris is dropping his new album, Dark Side of Pearl, a collection of R&B-influenced pop tunes, at the Fox Theatre this week. Backed by his band, The Paper Stars, the tunes have a lightly funky vibe, evocative of Portland’s Shy Girls or Mayer Hawthorne. Expect to bob your head tastefully.
