Q's Lounge, the musical venue of Everett and Jones BBQ in Jack London Square, relaunches its normally $10 music series with a free show: three 45-minute sets by Oakland's premier chanteuse, Naté.

Naté is well known in the Bay Area's hip-hop community, having laid hooks for luminaries such as Mac Dre, B-Legit, and Bavgate, among many others. Yet she's a genuine artist in her own right, with a voice that ranges from low-down and grimy to soaring and crystal clear.

A veteran live performer, Naté belts it out at Q's with her three-piece R&B combo. And it's free — but your date will still think you're big ballin'!
