The Kid Carsons
Thu. Aug. 4 | Sibling singer/songwriters and Bear America label-makers Chad and Morgan Carson cobbled together 11 tracks from a lifetime of Louisiana harmony for their self-titled, self-released 2015 LP debut. There isn't a false note on it. Coyotes headline and Midriff opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Muuy Biien
Fri. Aug. 5 | The Georgia punk rock band straddles avant garde-inspired noise and frantic hardcore, nervously twitching through 30 minutes of wiry, Nation of Ulysses-inspired punk on its 2014 album D.Y.I. David Barbe (Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt) helmed the band's upcoming 2016 release. Black Abba and Paloma open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

The Junior League
Sun. Aug. 7 | Joe Adragna is a perpetual under-the-radar flyer, due to his chosen internet-escaping handle and his understated way with pop/rock melodies you'll swear you've heard before. His latest release, 2015's Also Rans (Kool Kat Musik), features nudging production and guest spots by Scott McCaughey of The Minus 5. Dressy Bessy headlines and The Hoppers open at 9:30 p.m. at Circle Bar.
