Monday 4
That MS MR show sold out Anti-Monday at Casbah...but across town, Soda Bar urges you to support local Monday, as they stage that “next generation power trio” Taurus Authority, featuring Greyboy on the decks, drum machine, and vocoder, Jake Najor hittin’ the kit, and Delmos Wade on keys and “talk box.” Podunk Nowhere and Rosewood & Rye will set it up.

Tuesday 5
Happy Cinco de Metal! Recommend you clear your Wednesday, as Soda Bar’s setting up tequila shots and a fun game of Melty Melty Face Face, featuring hard-rocking locals Kulteir, Sentinel, Beheading the King, and Idol’s Plague...Casbah’s also got a cabeza-banger, as Providence noise-rock duo Lightning Bolt strikes the stage at the Middletown mainstay after Brooklyn black-metal band Liturgy...Finnish folk-metal band Korpiklaani shreds Middle Earth–style at Brick by Brick after Trollfest and Helsott...while up at Belly Up you’ve got ponk rock con salsa by Mariachi el Bronx and Tijuana Panthers.

Noise-rock duo Lightning Bolt strikes at Casbah Tuesday night!

Wednesday 6
On their way to this year’s Austin psych fest, Levitation, Thee Oh Sees check in at Bar Pink Wednesday night. I know you know the SanFran band because you always pack the house when they're in town, so let’s talk about Levitation. Have you seen that lineup, for the luva gawd?! 13th Floor Elevators, Flaming Lips, Jesus & Mary Chain, Tame Impala, Primal Scream, Spiritualized, Black Angels, Metz(!), Thee Oh Sees, Mac Demarco, and on and on and on and on, just like that. How come Austin gets Levitated and we get f!!!ing Kaboo’d? Dear Thee Oh Sees, I will load gear for you for free, chip in for gas, feed myself, and find my own way home if you take me with you. Sincerely, Barnaby Monk. P.S. If my editor doesn’t delete this shameless plea, no, I’m not kidding.... Moving right along: the Merrow’s serving up funky rock ’n’ soul Jelly Bread. The Reno four-piece is out to tout its latest, Lessons Learned...25-year-strong alt-rock Illinoise-makers Local H will play from their new one, Hey, Killer, at Casbah...while them knights in white satin jumpsuits, English prog-rock act the Moody Blues, play Humphreys by the Bay.
