The Drums with Hoops
Tue. Dec. 5 | Likeminded bands that made substantial leaps in 2017 — Bloomington, Indiana's Hoops with May's Routines (Fat Possum), and New York City's The Drums with June's Abysmal Thoughts (Anti-) — combine forces in this twofer showcase. Lawn opens at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Lost Bayou Ramblers present Kalenda
Sat. Dec. 9 | The Lost Bayou Ramblers just received a Grammy nomination for September release Kalenda, named for a dance that ties together the Caribbean, New Orleans and Acadiana. The band is joined by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), Spider Stacy (The Pogues), Leyla McCalla, avant-garde saxophonist Dickie Landry and Jimmy Horn (King James & the Special Men) to perform music from the album. At 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. at Music Box Village.

Sun. Dec. 10 | Alicia Bognanno comes as close to combining Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love as anyone not named Frances Bean. Losing, her October Sub Pop debut, weds the anxiety and anguish of grunge's first couple in a laser-focused, live-to-tape genre temple. Smut opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
