Helter Swelter 2016
Fri.-Sat. Aug. 12-13 | Local infant-imprint Pelican Pow Wow Records hosts this soiree, a get-in-the-kitchen throwdown and bizarro bazaar with some of punk rock's sweatiest lodgers: NOTS, Gary Wrong Group and Trampoline Team on Friday; Country Teaser Ben Wallers, Spray Paint and Giorgio Murderer on Saturday. At 9:30 p.m. at Siberia.

They Say the Wind Made Them Crazy
Sun. Aug. 14 | Texas prog-hoppers Sarah Ruth Alexander and Gregg Prickett join forces for this wind-whipped duo, whose spectral debut Far From the Silvery Light (Tofu Carnage) merges classical oratorios with endless metal intros. Proud/Father, The Death Posture and Odom and Cambre open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.

Touche Amore and Ceremony
Mon. Aug. 15 | If you like emotional punk that spills its guts and rolls around on them onstage in short bursts, there's Touche Amore, whose 2016's Stage Four (Epitaph) is a brutal, post-hardcore cancer diary. For Ian Curtis types, there's reformed hardcore punks Ceremony, whose 2015 album The L-Shaped Man (Matador) is a dead ringer for Joy Division despair. Gouge Away and I'm Fine open the all-ages show at 8 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
