Sigur Ros

Thu. Oct. 3 | Sigur Ros goes to 11 — members, that is. It takes a Reykjavik village to stage the otherworldly swells of June release Kveikur (XL), whose crawling crescendos wouldn't seem ideal for a show in the shadow of the Superdome — until you attach them to slow-motion confetti rain. At 7 p.m. at Champions Square.

Sat. Oct 5 | The most recent album from California demon Ty Segall — which will become his fifth in the past two years, when new sludge-rock trio Fuzz debuts in October — is an all-acoustic affair called Sleeper (Drag City). As if. Trampoline Team, The Babes and CCR Headcleaner open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
