Even disguised as a beach-music oldie, Freda Payne’s “Band of Gold” remains one the greatest sitar-driven soul records ever, far more convincing than anything fellow Detroiters the Supremes ever lip-synced. The music of Wanda Dee is a far cry from the heartwrenching lament of a spurned wife: Dee and her gloriously scantily clad group KLF (Dee once collaborated with British dance duo the KLF, and in the wake of its self-destruction has liberated the name for her own use) are on a sacred proto-feminist mission that Luscious Jackson can understand: to find the goddess in every woman. Payne opens at 11 p.m. at Jaxx, 6355 Rolling Rd., Springfield. $20. (703) 569-5940. (ED)
