mon 11/5 Suffocation
@ WHISKY A GO-GO
New York death-metal band Suffocation have been around since 1988 (but for a break between ’98 and 2003) but this current tour is a bit special because it’s the last for vocalist Frank Mullen. The writing’s been
on the wall for some time — the group has been using dual vocalists for a few years, and now Mullen has decided he’s ready to retire, at least from this group. He’ll be tough to replace; his low-pitched vocals were consid- ered groundbreaking within the death- metal world back in the ’80s. But the noises are that Suffocation will soldier on, with longtime guitarist Terrance Hobbs leading the way. We trust that they’ll continue to be awesome, but this last chance to see them with Mullen should be grabbed. Cattle Decapitation, Krisiun, Visceral Disgorge, Insineratehymn and Festering Grave also play. —Brett CallwooD

Joni 75: A Birthday Celebration
@ DOROTHY CHANDLER PAVILION
The gorgeous surroundings of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, elaborate chandeliers and all, will provide a glamorous setting for a two-day birthday party for the first lady of folk, Joni Mitchell. The event (also on Nov. 7) will see stars pay tribute to Mitchell, with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Chaka Khan, Kris Kristofferson, Los Lobos, Graham Nash, Seal and Rufus Wainwright turning out. Mitchell deserves all of that attention and more; the woman behind the 1971 masterpiece Blue has won nine Gram- mys and has influenced more musicians than anyone could ever possibly count. Mitchell is a Canada native but she’s closely associated with the Laurel Canyon scene of the ’60s and so, as far we’re concerned, she’s one of us. Happy birthday, Joni.

Goatwhore
@ THE ROXY
Goatwhore are classified as “blackened death metal,” which essentially means black metal and death metal mixed together into a big extreme metal soup. And honestly, that’s not a surprise when looking at the album titles (Funeral Dirge for the Rotting Sun, Carving Out the Eyes of God, and last year’s Vengeful Ascension), and song titles such as “The Serpent That Enslaves What Is Worshipped,” “Razor Flesh Devoured” and “Those Who Denied God’s Will.” Look, the New Orleans boys ain’t writing ballads and, to a degree, you know what you’re gonna get with them. That said, limited copies of last year’s album came with a hardcover “spell book,” so they can still throw out a surprise or two. The Casualties, Black Tusk
and Great American Ghost also play on this 2018 edition of the Metal Alliance tour. —Brett CallwooD
Mitski, Overcoats
@ THE WILTERN
“Spend an hour on my makeup to prove something,” Mitski sings forlornly about a romantic assignation on “Lonesome Love,” from her fifth album, Be the Cowboy. “’Cause nobody butters me up like you, and nobody fucks me like me.” The track clocks in at less than two minutes, and
yet a piercing sadness lingers long after
the song has ended. The vicissitudes of love hover throughout, whether Mitski is intoning over an icy soundscape on “Gey- ser” or singing a more traditional piano ballad, such as “Old Friend.” She turns her romantic disappointment and self-era- sure into a kind of poetry on “Me and My Husband,” in which she confides, “I steal a few breaths from the world for a minute, and then I’ll be nothing forever.” New York duo Overcoats set the mood with subdued electronic pop layered with heartfelt har- monies. —Falling James

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
@ THE NOVO
Hailing from Cleveland, the hip-hop group consisting of Layzie Bone, Krayzie Bone, Wish Bone, Flesh-N-Bone and Bizzy Bone is best known for timeless hits including “Crossroad,” “1st of tha Month” and “Thug- gish Ruggish Bone.” While they were held responsible for the “Cleveland Sound,” their story, swag and style have influenced gen- erations to come. It was in November 1993 that the group decided to purchase one-way tickets on the Greyhound and head to Los Angeles to claim their place in the rap game. They connected with Eazy-E early on, and
it wasn’t long before the N.W.A co-founder eventually signed them to his Ruthless Records label. Fast-forward to 2018 and the group continues to tour and bless fans with nostalgic performances around the world. —shirley Ju
Southern Culture on the Skids
@ ECHOPLEX
Like a three-ring circus, Southern Culture on the Skids are a visual trip onstage. Drum- mer Dave Hartman performs standing up, singer-bassist Mary Huff often is decked out in fantastic, colorful wigs, and singer-guitar- ist Rick Miller hands out buckets of chicken to fans midsong. However, the fun-loving roots-trash-surf trio from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, are far more than just a novelty band. If you close your eyes, the mu- sical prowess of the group becomes imme- diately obvious. Miller scratches up a slew
of deft CCR-style licks on guitar, and he and Huff are fine vocalists, trading off on such catchy originals and inspired cover songs as “Banana Pudding,” “Mojo Box” and “Fire
of Love.” SCOTS’ most recent album, The Electric Pinecones, is a ’60s-tinged assort- ment of country and garage-rock tunes. It’s all fun, fun, fun, as The Beach Boys would say. —Falling James
