Souls of Mischief

Wed. July 31 | Souls of Mischief didn't make much noise when it dropped Montezuma's Revenge (Clear) — the Oakland, Calif., crew's first LP in a decade — in 2009. Nothing new for the Hieroglyphics offshoot, whose platinum-anniversary 93 'til Infinity remains an entombed relic of yesteryear hip-hop. At the Hi-Ho Lounge.

Ghastly City Sleep

Fri. Aug. 2 | The Virginia- and New York-based supergroup Ghastly City Sleep features members of '90s punk outfits pg. 99 and City of Caterpillar. The band's dark, atmospheric pop and moody gothic textures glimpse American Radiohead ambitions. Pretty Bleak opens at Fair Grinds Coffeehouse.

Sat. Aug. 3 | The reverb-heavy, psychedelic-tinged, country rockers are twangier than fellow Athens, Ga., rockers Drive-by Truckers, and on the road more often — touring frequently since their first release, 2010's Hampton's Lullaby. The band released its second album Baba Yaga in April. At One Eyed Jacks.

Speedy Ortiz

Sun. Aug. 4 | If you think Speedy Ortiz's jagged debut Major Arcana (Carpark) sounds like a female Pavement (Stephen Malkmus and the Chicks?), singer Sadie Dupuis has beaten you to the punch line: The rapier-tongued Northampton, Mass., poet used to front a cover band called Babement. Opposable Thumbs opens at Circle Bar.
