Thursday 20
After years on the down-low in South Orange (self-imposed) and then a brief stint in white-collar incarceration (tax evasion), ex-Fugee/ex–Mrs. Wyclef Jean, Ms. Lauryn Hill is making her way back to the stage behind a few new sociopolitikal singles (“Neurotic Society,” “Consumerism”) and a tour that bumps through town twice this week. If you missed Monday’s set at the North Park Theatre, Ms. Hill will hit it again Thursday night. As of this typing, limited tix still available, so “doo wop that thing” if you want to catch this rare appearance of our number-one neo-soul sister. Ziggy’s kid, Bob’s grandson, reggae rapper Daniel Bambaata Marley will open the show.... Miss the door in North Park, roll it over to the Tower Bar, where desert burners Petty Things headline sets by SanFran band Emotional and our own Electric Healing Sound and Shady Francos. Petty Things is a Tempe-based fuzz-rock band with little fanfare for their Giant Sand sound. Well, Giant Sand on a pop-rock high. The Things are out to tout this year’s keeper cassette, Year of the Dog. Check it, get it: pettythings.bandcamp.com.... Else: hip-hop hit Dom Kennedy takes the all-ages main stage at Soma. The West Coast rapper is touring in support of his latest, Get Home Safely...while rock-n-soul slinger/singer Jesse LaMonaca and his Dime Novels band split an Americana bill with Grampadrew & the Gut Strings at Casbah.

Neo-soul singer Ms. Lauryn Hill takes the stage at North Park Theatre on Thursday.

Friday 21
“For two decades, the Woggles have marched forth from Georgia like Sherman in reverse, leveling nightclubs with their hip-shaking, windshield-steaming garage-rock fusillade” (Austin Chronicle). Also championed by Little Steven’s Underground Garage, the psych-rock Atlanta band is touring in support of their latest Wicked Cool Records record, The Big Beat. The Woggles will headline sets at Til-Two Friday night after the spouse-swapping Rosalyns and Diddley Daddies (our own Schitzophonics and Loons trading teams).... Woods and Babies bassist Kevin Morby has released another solo stunner in this year’s Still Life, “steeped in Dylan’s back-to-basics period at the turn of the ’70s...a sumptuous, slightly rickety, offhandedly gorgeous” collection, according to Pitchfork, and I’m inclined to agree. Got a clip called “Motors Running” running on this week’s podcast. Morby splits a bill at Soda Bar with SDMA-winning rock-rollers (“the real, fun, hot, lack of sleep, always outrageous kind”), the Paragraphs.... Best of the rest finds the hard-rocking Red Dragon Cartel, featuring Ozzy guitarist Jake E. Lee, stackin’ ’em up at Brick by Brick after like-minded locals Seventrain...while them melodic death-metal dudes from Santa Barbara, Nekrogoblikon, conjure their dark Power EP at Porter’s Pub after Theosis and Midas Touch.

Philly shredder Mike Polizze and his Purling Hiss hit the Hideout on Saturday.

Saturday 22
Philly sons Purling Hiss hit the Hideout behind their latest and greatest, Weirdon, a shredder’s delight. Head Hisser Mike Polizze does go off, but he inevitably finds the big hook to catch you with. Catch up with Polizze in Dryw Keltz’s interview for Blurt, “Need a good face-melting?” With Octagrape and A/V freaks Die Mißbildungen Des Menschen setting it up, this’d be the gig to see Saturday night.... Miss the door at the Hideout, Love guitarist Johnny Echols is keeping his band’s 1967 essential psych-folk set Forever Changes alive and well with Love Revisited, which headlines sets at Casbah after the Loons and Bunnynose...while L.A. synthpunk trio Fartbarf (?!) and that Long Beach power trio “who loves both Iron Maiden and Abba with equal intensity,” Bella Novela, split a bill at Bar Pink.
