Wed. July 8 | The tension in this Brooklyn duo's music may come from their disparate backgrounds: singer/guitarist James Ardery is a former punk rocker, drummer Joel Myers a classical pianist. "Low Hanging Fruit," an advance single off the forthcoming Service Industry (Felte), forges its own genre. SS Boombox and Liquor and Lies open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
Thu.-Fri. July 9-10 | The Portland, Oregon singer/songwriter croons woeful tales over gentle picking on self-released albums such as his 2014 Basement Soul. At 10 p.m. Thursday at Circle Bar.
Sat. July 11 | Over a decade and some lineup changes, Gravity A has grounded itself as a jamming, sometimes jazzy funk and electronic outfit. It celebrates its 10th anniversary at 10 p.m. at Blue Nile.
Sun. July 12 | The Australian garage rock quartet shines on the sunny power-pop of its 2015 album Melbourne, Florida (Chapter Music), which borrows as much from Flying Nun's scrappy punk catalog as the band's beach and desert locales down under. Guts Club and Sexy Dex & the Fresh open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
