Todd Snider with Luther Dickinson
Sat. Jan. 6 | For his feral 2016 LP Eastside Bulldog (Aimless), Nashville-based singer/songwriter Todd Snider lets his long-barking alter ego Elmo Buzz off the leash, and man's best friend proves anything but. North Mississippi All-Stars' Luther Dickinson opens at 8 p.m. at the Joy Theater.

Nesby Phips album release
Sat. Jan. 6 | The latest album from the New Orleans rapper and producer, Black Man 4 Sale is Nesby Phips' boldest, most vivid work yet, a history lesson wrapped in a striking personal narrative. He performs the album with versatile backing band The Grid at 9 p.m. at Three Keys.

Where Y'acht Presents a Twelfth Night Tribute to Steely Dan
Sat. Jan. 6 | They're a calendar early for "Hey '19," but this Steely Dan fete by 1980s cover captains Where Y'acht — honoring Walter Becker, who died in September — reels in the new year with gusto. At 10 p.m. at Tipitina's.

Dead to a Dying World
Mon. Jan. 8 | A palpable sense of doom, apocalyptic threats, seemingly endless brutality — 2017 had a lot in common with Dead to a Dying World's crusty 2015 masterpiece Litany, a prophetic vision of the end of days the world probably deserves. Crossed and Raum open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
