Wed. Oct. 4 | Releasing albums like clockwork every other year, Brooklyn dream-pop outfit Widowspeak makes music designed to forget the time: an adrift vessel stuffed with Mazzy Star-addressed love letters, perfected on fourth release Expect the Best (Captured Tracks). Clearance and Rudy Stone open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

The Courtneys
Thu. Oct. 5 | Riding on the trebly twang of jangly post-punk predecessors, Vancouver trio The Courtneys — the first non-New Zealand band on the influential Flying Nun Records label — unleashes waves of droning melodies and addictive sweet-sour power-pop on 2017 album The Courtneys II. Vile Bodies opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Mura Masa
Sat. Oct. 7 | On his eponymous debut LP (Anchor Point), Mura Masa — aka 21-year-old English producer Alex Crossan — curates the dance compilation of 2017, an exuberant pastiche of electronic genres lacquered to a fine gloss with pop polyurethane. Joey Purp opens at 11 p.m. at Republic.
