Kehlani

Sat. May 20 | Kehlani Parrish's solo debut SweetSexySavage (Atlantic) appeals to both sides of her fan base: the teen crowds who screamed to her America's Got Talent band PopLyfe, and the rest who recognize bangers "Keep On" and "Distraction" for the pop lifer they may have introduced. Ella Mai, Jahkoy and Noodles open at 9 p.m. at Republic.

Black Lips

Mon. May 22 | Satan's Graffiti or God's Art? asks the Atlanta garage-punk cretins on the title of their Sean Lennon-produced eighth studio album, a return to the glorious fuzz from whence it came (but with Yoko Ono on some backup vocals). Surfbort and DJ Jubilee open at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
