Sage Francis
June 26 | Copper Gone is Sage Francis' return following a four-year break, and it's his first release since 2003 without Epitaph, on which he was the longtime punk label's first hip-hop artist. The album opens with a sample asking, "Where have you been?" On "Pressure Cooker," he answers, with gruff blasts of frenetic wordplay and barbed-wired social commentary. DJ Quickie Mart opens at 8 p.m. at Southport Hall.

Circa Survive
Tue. June 24 | Post-hardcore Philadelphia prog-rockers Circa Survive inadvertently reunited its heroes Sunny Day Real Estate when the two bands paired for a 2014 split record. Circa Survive's 2012 album, the self-released Violent Waves, continues the band's dark, sonically ambitious soundscapes. Ume opens at 8 p.m. at House of Blues.

Hundred Waters
Wed. June 25 | With its second release, May's The Moon Rang Like a Bell (released on Skrillex's OWSLA label), Hundred Waters crafts the kind of layered, whispered bedroom pop at home on dreamy Icelandic pop playlists, wrapped around singer Nicole Miglis' hushed falsetto with synth echoes and drum machines. GEMS and Bois open at 10 pm. at One Eyed Jacks.

Amen Dunes

The Menzingers
Mon. June 30 | The Pennsylvania punk rockers' latest is Rented World (Epitaph), a heartland rocking set of classic punk with arena-sized guitars and heart-on-sleeve confessions. Buffalo, New York's Lemuria (equal parts Superchunk and the entire twee-pop canon) and Canada's PUP open at 8:30 p.m. at Siberia.
