True Widow
Tue. April 19 | The Dallas, Texas self-described "stonegaze" trio conjures mystic guitar doom with surprisingly delicate down-tuned melodies. The band's fourth album and second on Relapse Records — following 2013's bonged-out epic Circumambulation — is due this summer. Slimy Member and Silver Godling open at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Thao & the Get Down Stay Down
Thu. April 21 | Inspired by her absentee father and conspired on with Tune-Yards' loco-motivator Merrill Garbus, A Man Alive (Ribbon) gives birth to a new Thao Nguyen: an established artist embracing her most idiosyncratic self, one who knows the difference between getting down and staying there. Seratones opens at 8 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

The Joy Formidable with The Helio Sequence
Wed. April 20 | In the great tradition of Welsh singers from Tom Jones to Bonnie Tyler to Gruff Rhys, Ritzy Bryan is the eye-magnet northern star to Cate Le Bon's fence-pulling Southern farm girl. Bryan's The Joy Formidable is touring in support of self-released LP Hitch with alt-rock stalwart The Helio Sequence. Bantam Foxes opens at 8:30 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
