Black Label Society
Wed. Jan. 17 | Ozzy's guitar god Zakk Wylde revives his classically denim-wrapped heavy metal band for 2018 release Grimmest Hits, kicked off with thunderous single "Room of Nightmares." The band is on tour with Corrosion of Conformity, set to release 2018 LP No Cross No Crown this month. New Orleans sludge pioneers Eyehategod open at 6:30 p.m. at House of Blues.

The Deep Dark Woods with Sarah Quintana
Fri. Jan. 19 | Canadian brooders The Deep Dark Woods open 2017's Yarrow (Six Shooter) with a pitch for the opening credits of True Detective: In haunting yawns stretching from Leonard Cohen to The Handsome Family, "Fallen Leaves" strands listeners in a wintry Saskatchewan wilderness. Sarah Quintana opens at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Particle Devotion album release with Sharks' Teeth and Midriff
Fri. Jan. 19 | With a South by Southwest showcase selection and the release of sophomore LP Millennial Trash, Brian Bells' clacking Baton Rouge crew has packed more celebrating into 2018's first fortnight than some bands manage in an entire year. Hometown favorites Sharks' Teeth and Midriff round out the indie-rock state fair at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Kinky Friedman
Sun. Jan. 21 | Iconoclastic country-rocking troubadour Kinky Friedman has led a busy life — releasing more than 15 albums and 30 books, touring with Bob Dylan and running for governor of Texas. He's got an album of new work and a book about Dylan coming out in 2018. He performs at 8 p.m. at Chickie Wah Wah.
