M83 with YACHT
Wed. April 6 | Junk (Mute), M83's long-awaited follow-up to 2011 supernova Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, arrives this week, and if advance single/opening track "Do It, Try It" is any indication — a spatial opera featuring a stadium-crashing backbeat and multipart prog/jazz construction — it's going to be a doozy. YACHT opens at 8 p.m. at The Civic Theatre.

PEARS album release
Thu. April 7 | Following a whirlwind, accident-filled world tour, New Orleans hardcore punk band PEARS releases the rapid-fire, hook-filled and unpredictable acid blast Green Star, its second album and first on venerable punk label Fat Wreck Chords. Such Gold, Donovan Wolfington and Classhole open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.

Bobby Rush
Sat. April 9 | At 82, Bobby Rush is an elder statesman of the blues — mixed with R&B, funk and soul — but he just gets better with age, having drawn Grammy Award nominations for 2014's Decisions and 2013's Down in Louisiana. He and opener Colin Lake perform solo acoustic sets. At 9 p.m. at Chickie Wah Wah.

Mumford & Sons with Blake Mills
Sat. April 9 | This season-ushering doubleheader pairs the probably overrated Marcus Mumford & Sons with the definitely underrated Blake Mills, Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes producer, whose overlooked LPs Break Mirrors and Heigh Ho consistently reach the kind of highs just outside Mumford's grasp. At 8 p.m. at Zephyr Field.

Acid Mothers Temple
Mon. April 11 | The prolific, long-running psychedelic Japanese collective forecasts a 2016 release for Wake to a New Dawn of Another Astro Era, among the band's dozens of studio and live releases and welcoming two new players (drummer Satoshima Nani and cryptically named bassist S/T) to its evolving cosmic congregation. Mounds and Druids open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
