Sat. Feb. 7 | Memphis punk scenesters Natalie Hoffman and Charlotte Watson have played together for years, but their debut as Nots, expertly titled We Are Nots (Goner), sounds like it was thrown together in an afternoon: 26 minutes of nonstop spiky riffs and shouty roundabouts. Gino & the Goons and Buck Biloxi & the F—ks open at 9:30 p.m. at Saturn Bar.

Mon. Feb. 9 | The seven-MC-deep hip-hop collective behind 2011's masterful Wugazi (merging Wu-Tang Clan classics with Fugazi) released its third full-length album All Hands Jan. 27. The diverse team blends punk ferocity with head-bouncing production and mile-a-minute, socially conscious flows. Open Mike Eagle and MadFro open at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
