Sleep and Thou
Tue. Jan. 23 | Seminal stoner-rockers Sleep reformed after a decade in 2009, but fans are still waiting for the answer to twin-killing postmortems Jerusalem (1999) and Dopesmoker (2003). A message posted to its website last year — in Morse code — confirmed a project "nearing completion" with "engineering accomplice" Noah Landis (Neurosis). Thou opens at 8 p.m. at Civic Theatre.

Lucinda Williams
Sat. Jan. 27 | Lake Charles native Lucinda Williams follows The Ghosts of Highway 20 by waking a few ghosts of her own: a complete re-recording, re-sequencing and rebirth of 1992's Sweet Old World, the fraught middle child of her early classic albums. At 9 p.m. at House of Blues.

Tommy Wright III
Sat. Jan. 27 | On his "Back from the Dead" tour, the Memphis underground gangsta rap legend — whose wicked, fast-paced storytelling could make his trigger-happy contemporaries blush — returns to New Orleans for a ghostly encore. Trampoline Team, Special Interest, PIMP and DJ BKK are on the bill at 10 p.m. at Santos Bar.

Adan Jodorowksy
Sun. Jan. 28 | First things first: Yes, he's the son of filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. The actor and director's musical output, from subterranean disco pop to Spanish language folk, continues the Jodorowsky lineage of otherworldly invention. Julie Odell, Tashe & and the Psychedelic Roses and Rudy Stone open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
