Chris Cohen
Thu. May 26 | A supporting musician for Deerhoof, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Cass McCombs, Chris Cohen has recorded two lesser-known albums under his own name: 2012's Overgrown Path and the current As If Apart (Captured Tracks), a subtle psych-out in the vein of a sleep-deprived Stereolab. Keeping, Neat and The Cavemen also perform at 9:30 p.m. at Circle Bar.

Reagan Youth
Sat. May 28 | New York City's seminal political hardcore punk band, with only a handful of releases in its two-dozen-members and 30-plus-years history, preaches its explosive, snotty anarchism on a string of Southern tour dates. Avenue Rockers open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.

Shemekia Copeland
Sun. May 29 | A three-time Grammy nominee and multiple blues awards winner, singer Shemekia Copeland covers a lot of ground on her recent release Outskirts of Love, with original tunes and covers of songs by Solomon Burke to Creedence Clearwater Revival. At 8:30 p.m. at Chickie Wah Wah.

Mon. May 30 | Pronounced "Dive" and named after a Nirvana tune, Brooklyn band DIIV self-detonates the sophomore slump on Is the Is Are (Captured Tracks), sidestepping the shoegaze bear trap of 2012 debut Oshin in favor of a blacktop-lapping, coast-to-coast road trip with a trunkful of fear and loathing. The Paranoyds open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
