Cory Branan
Wed. June 22 | Cory Branan is the kind of troubadour that pop-country forgot: A resonant singer and detail-obsessed lyricist whose The No-Hit Wonder (Bloodshot) contributes 11 dog-eared pages to the Great American Songbook ("I got me another girl, she looks like you at 23/ But while she sleeps I trace the places where your tattoos used to be"). At 8:30 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Whom Do You Work For?
Sun. June 26 | Emerging from under a tangled web of cables, New Orleans duo Bradley Black and Isidro Robinson return to somewhat-regular performances with far-out electronic sound experiments, retooling spidery, synthetic post-punk for good-weird new noise. Synthesizer quintet Sharks' Teeth also is on the bill at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Big Thief
Mon. June 27 | Big Thief bears more than a few similarities to Waxahatchee, the band to which it's often compared: Both acts deliver churning folk/rock and devastating storytelling in the guise of a sweetly soured female singer/songwriter — in this case, Adrianne Lenker, whose debut Masterpiece (Saddle Creek) aims for the stars and nearly hits its mark. Pontchartrain Beach bums Danny opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
