Greg Dulli
Fri.-Sat. April 1-2 | This twin billing from midnight rambler Greg Dulli closes out a three-week circuit of intimate shows culling parts from his black fleet of musical vehicles (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins, solo and covered material). At 11:59 p.m. at Preservation Hall.

Benoit Pioulard
Sat. April 2 | The ambient composer and singer-songwriter (Thomas Meluch) has spent nearly a decade as Benoit Pioulard, evolving his ethereal drone from Donovan-esque pop into the cosmic church on 2015's Sonnet (Kranky). HAWN and Sharks' Teeth, two of New Orleans newest electronic authorities, open at 10 p.m. at Saturn Bar.

Ryley Walker
Sat. April 2 | Seemingly dusting off immaculate scraps from Astral Weeks sessions, singer-songwriter Ryley Walker's Primrose Green bursts with half-improvised lyrics (borrowing even Van's wild hollers) weaving around scrappy, often finger-picked guitar and loose folk and jazz arrangements. On April 16, Walker releases Cannots, collaborative album with Charles Rumback. New Holland opens at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

They Might Be Giants
Sat. April 2 | The 2015 reprisal of They Might Be Giants' answering-machine recording project Dial-A-Song is paying some (telephone) bills: two new adult albums (Glean and Phone Power, issued last month by Idlewild) and the all-ages Why? One of those cuts: a triflin' tweener cover of Destiny Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills." At 9 p.m. at House of Blues.
