@ THE REGENT THEATER
Like many if not most electronic music producers, Wolfgang Voigt chooses to release his work under an assortment of pseudonyms. Hard techno and acid tracks might be attributed to Mike Ink or Vinyl Countdown; minimal techno and ambient productions may appear as M:I:5 or Love Inc. But it is as GAS that the Kompakt label boss (Voigt runs the storied Cologne, Germany–based imprint with Michael Mayer and Jürgen Pappe) is most revered, and rightly so. Albums such as 1998’s win- try Zauberberg and 2000’s bittersweet Pop have aged gracefully and become touch- stones not just for ambient and minimal but for all of electronic music. —Matt Miner

Holiday Sidewinder,
Wet & Reckless
@THEHIHAT
“We’re humans, we make plans and machines,” Emily Wilder announces on “Machinery,” from Wet & Reckless’ 2015 self-titled debut album. “Stone walls around hearts keep them cold/Keep in flaws and keep out what we don’t know.” Bassist Jessica Gelt, guitarist Ashley Berry and drummer Jalise Woodward surround Wilder’s declarations with energetic but melodic backing throughout the record. Wilder’s lyrics are smart and romantic without being overly sentimental, and the Echo Park indie-rock band pump up such tracks as “Confetti” with punky energy and a power-pop tunefulness. “Cemetery” is a strangely ebullient walk through the graveyard, while “Rope Me In” is a more introspective and spacey jangle. Former Bridezilla singer Holiday Sidewinder headlines with a set of glitzy Australian electro-pop. Plus Slugs and Superbloom. —Falling JaMes
The Aquadolls
@ THE SMELL
The Aquadolls started out with an appeal-
ing mix of garage rock, girl-band harmo- nies, punk-rock drive and surf-guitar riffs
on 2014’s Stoked on You but the SoCal group have expanded their sound further with their latest release, The Dream and the Deception. Lead singer Melissa Brooks and her band attempt to broaden their ap- peal with less-retro, mainstream-style pop songs such as “Euphoria” while still mixing in occasional punk blasts like “I’m a Star.” Brooks’ starry-eyed quest for fame crops up in the lyrics for the latter song and such tracks as “Hollywood,” but The Aquadolls still stand out from the numerous other bands in this town chasing the often-illu- sory ideal of celebrity. Brooks’ vocals con- tinue to charm on such pop idylls as “Ruby Eyes” and the softly glowing “Perfect.” Plus The Grinns, The Gems and Pleo Shaman. —Falling JaMes
Meat Puppets
@ PAPPY & HARRIET’S PIONEERTOWN PALACE Fourteen years after bassist Chris Kirk- wood served 21 months for striking a
post office security guard with his own baton, getting shot in the process, the Meat Puppets are a solid hardcore cowpunk unit. Along with frontman/brother Curt Kirkwood, and reunited with original drummer Derrick Bostrom for the first time since ’96, the Puppets are touring regularly. The 2013 album Rat Farm, their 14th full-length studio effort, was a solid piece of dusty alt-folk, though every fan
is waiting with eager anticipation for the next one, which will be their first with Bos- trom since 1995’s No Joke! This show will be a cool opportunity to see the band in
an intimate setting, and the fact that I See Hawks in L.A. also are on the bill makes it all the more special. —Brett Callwood
Behemoth, At the Gates
@ THE WILTERN
This one isn’t for the faint of heart. Vet-

eran Polish blackened death-metal band Behemoth join forces with Swedish death metallers At the Gates for a tour that
will rattle rib cages thanks to the pure, unbridled ferocity. Expect a whole lot of lyrics about blood, ancient rites, the Dark Lord, murder — all of that stuff. Don’t expect power ballads, or sing-along lyrics. Seriously, though, both of these European heavyweights have been at this game since the start of the ’90s, and they know exactly how to get a room full of sweaty metal- heads moshing like lunatics. Death metal — it’s not subtle, but it gets the job done. Washington black-metal troupe Wolves
in the Throne Room also are on the bill, which only dials up the intensity. —Brett Callwood
Wednesday 13
@WHISKYAGOGO
As the 1990s gave way to the new millen- nium, Slipknot were among the biggest and most exciting metal bands on the planet. So when, in 2002, drummer Joey Jordison decided to pick up a guitar and start a side project called Murderdolls, scores of Slipknot fans, or “maggots” as the band liked to call them, were paying atten- tion. The singer in that band was Wednes- day 13, who had made a name for himself in the horror-punk underground with his gender-bending zombie crew, Franken- stein Drag Queens From Planet 13. Now solo, Wednesday 13 has been putting out quality horror punk under his own name since 2005’s Transylvania 90210: Songs of Death, Dying and the Dead, although last year’s Condolences has more of a metal edge. Whatever he does, he does it well and with a spooky grin. Davey Suicide, Fate DeStroyed, Darling Dead, The Rhythm Coffin, Dusty Mitchell, Mortis and Emi- nence also play. —Brett Callwood
