Tue. March 22 | Uncharacteristically a month early, New Orleans has been celebrating April 20 for two weeks now, with visits from Weed, Weedeater, High and now Bongzilla, a portmanteau par excellence that leaves little doubt as to what's been powering the Madison, Wisconsin, metal quartet's tour bus for 20 years. Black Cobra, Kings Destroy and Lo-Pan open at 9 p.m. at Siberia.

Thu. March 24 | On 2014's acclaimed debut Aquarius, propelled by the DJ Mustard-driven hit "2 On," the sultry, introspective and expertly choreographed R&B performer incorporates minimal dance pop with spare trap beats. Tinashe's 2016 follow-up Joyride is supported by strong singles like the dark, skittering almost-love song "Bullet." Ryan Hemsworth opens at 8 p.m. at House of Blues.

Absu and Barghest
Fri. March 25 | The long-running, gauntlet-wearing blackened metal Texans deliver operatic, demonic riffs with raspy, occult-riddled vocals and relentless speed, casting spells on the trilogy of Absu, Apzu and forthcoming Apsu. Louisiana's swamp-dwelling black metal band Barghest opens with Witch Burial at 10 p.m. at Siberia.

Air Sex Championships
Fri. March 25 | On America's Got Talent, Howard Stern canned Chris Trew's pantomime of his sexual technique and prowess. Trew hosts the air-guitarlike competition, in which locals can strut their stuff in front of a panel of judges. At 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Sun. March 27 | Like Power Rangers holding guitars instead of whatever it was Power Rangers held, New York City-cum-Japan punkers Peelander-Z have been windmilling their bizarrely populist brand of arena rock for 17 years now, a 150,000-hour energy drink washing down a mouthful of Pop Rocks. Otonana and Dummy Dumpster open at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
