Fri. Jan. 12 | On its 2017 self-titled full-length, New Orleans' Bottomfeeders pummel through 10 destructive tracks of fuzz- and reverb-coated psychedelic garage rock, echoing into the colorful portal to hell it opened. Soaked, Teevee and Goldbloom open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Negative Gemini
Fri. Jan. 12 | Following the hazy electronic deliriums on her 2016 LP Body Work, Lindsey French's Negative Gemini opens 2018 with the release of Bad Baby (100% Electronica), six more doses of melancholic dream pop. New Orleans futurist funk band Sexy Dex and the Fresh also is on the bill with George Clanton and Naughty Palace at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
