March 5 | Surf pop out of dreary Seattle sounds mostly like wishful thinking. On 2013's dual debuts, EP Damp Face and LP It's Alive (Hardly Art), female foursome La Luz find their beach, turning seasonal affective disorder into a highly effective transport. The Shivas and Native America open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
Tue. March 3 | Comedy Beast features the shower-beer-loving, gravel-voiced product of Midwestern 7-Eleven parking lots, where one finds unironic joy in life's little things, from frozen pizza to burning his laundry, as he explains on his latest stand-up special I Liked His Old Stuff Better. Cyrus Cooper opens and Andrew Polk hosts at 9 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf.
Fri. March 6 | With every new mustachioed, polkaing punker that comes down the pipe, Eugene Hutz's handlebar grows. The cocky, cockeyed actor/rocker has, over the course of a series of film roles, six Gogol Bordello LPs and a silo of vodka, gone from atypical to archetype. Pura Vida Conspiracy (ATO) is the band's latest. At 9 p.m. at House of Blues.
