The female R&B trio, when properly assembled, can do amazing things with harmonies. Think of TLC or Destiny’s Child and the ways their voices meld on songs like “Unpretty” or “Survivor.” A new entry into this subgenre is KING, a Los Angeles-based ensemble featuring twins Amber and Paris Strother and Anita Bias. Their dream pop-influenced compositions layer delicate vocals on top of silky, undulating waves of synths and moody, affecting lyrics. While the mood they create on certain songs might feel right in a tiny, underground club, the fact that they’re playing at the Birchmere means more listeners will be able to see the group dynamics up close. Read more >>> KING performs with Jalen N’Gonda at 7:30 p.m. at The Birchmere, 3701 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. $29.50.
