Wed. May 18 | The Gandalf to Deafheaven's Frodo (and most other "pretty" metal bands' Gollum), Deftones traverses just about every alt-terrain possible on door-kicking eighth release Gore (Warner Bros.), from sweeping post-rock to larynx-shredding theatrics to instrument-torching electrical storms. Code Orange opens at 8 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater.

Modern English
Mon. May 23 | How many accidental tourists on Toulouse Street will think this is just a particularly great Old Wave Night? Modern English's "Mesh & Lace" reunion tour might not stop the world, but it will make you melt. Entertainment opens at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
