Tony Joe White
Wed. Oct. 14 | Early Tony Joe White hits "Polk Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night in Georgia" are often associated with famous covers of them, by Elvis Presley and Brooke Benton, respectively. But it's not hard to find the tunes in White's gruff baritone on the nearly 40 albums he's released, including live concert recordings. Seth Walker opens at 8 p.m.

Thu. Oct. 15 | On albums that come around as often as leap years, future-proof instrumentalists Battles evoke both a ghost in the machine and an android's beating heart. La Di Da Di (Warp) is the band's latest. At 9 p.m. at Republic.

Mac DeMarco
Sat. Oct. 17 | It's not that Mac DeMarco isn't trying; it's that he doesn't much have to. On albums that flow like soft-pop streams of consciousness — his second LP was titled II; his new one is Another One (Captured Tracks) — the new King of Queens again taps a spigot that can't be turned off. Alex Calder and Walter TV open at 9 p.m. at the Civic Theatre.

Tav Falco's Panther Burns
Sat. Oct. 17 | The late Alex Chilton is among the dozens of band members that graced the self-described "art damage" punk and blues performance art of Memphis rock 'n' roller Tav Falco and his Panther Burns — which now includes Minutemen bassist and bandleader Mike Watt. The band's latest is the rock 'n' roll variety show Command Performance (Twenty Stone Blatt Records). 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
