San Jose's Uneaq began life as a jazz band, but was forced to rethink its style after the departure of its keyboardist. The group Andrew Lozano and siblings Jessica and Joshua Marquez instead shifted into playing house music, releasing discs on local label Om last year. Uneaq's songs stand out not only for the live instrumentation, but also for Jessica's honeyed vocal tones. Uneaq performs live at "Remedy" on Friday, Feb. 23, at DNA Lounge at 10 p.m. Admission is $10-20; call 626-1409 or visit www.dnalounge.com for more info. T.P.
Born in Nazareth but now based in Tel Aviv, brothers Ilan, Ruven, and Shmuel Flaishler make up Flash Brothers , the only Israeli DJ/production group currently circulating the international dance scene. Their appeal is due in part to their wide-screen approach to DJ sets; the brothers have honed in on a sweet spot connecting techno, trance, and electro that superstars like Sasha and John Digweed previously cornered. It's a safe bet that Flash Brothers won't be playing the same old tunes on Saturday, Feb. 24, at Ruby Skye at 8 p.m. Admission is $15; call 693-0777 or visit www.rubyskye.com for more info. T.P.
