Mild High Club
Tue. May 3 | Alex Brettin's psychedelic pop on 2015's Timeline (Stones Throw Records) swirls cloudy, AM radio hooks with Nuggets-inspired trips, not unlike co-conspirator Ariel Pink's warped pop daydreams. New Orleans psych-garage bands Trance Farmers and Dead Marshes open at 10 p.m. at Saturn Bar.

The 1975
Sun. May 8 | Go ahead and try disliking this latest greatest-thing-ever hailed by the U.K. music press — those attempts should fail around track three of sophomore LP I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it (objection sustained). "UGH!" is Carly Rae Jepsen-catchy, and you know it. The Japanese House opens at 7:30 p.m. at Champions Square.

Young Thug
Mon. May 9 | The worthiest heir to Lil Wayne's mixtape-spooling mantle, Jeffrey Lamar Williams reached double digits in official unofficial releases before last year's Barter 6 (300/Atlantic) — originally titled Carter VI before Wayne kiboshed the tribute (beef!). His 2016 already includes a third Slime Season and plans for a fourth I Came From Nothing. At 8 p.m. at Republic.
