J Mascis, Kurt Vile & the Violators

When: Sun., April 10, 9 p.m. 2011

Later this year, J. Mascis will tour with his body-of-volume, heart-of-hooks band Dinosaur Jr, playing the band's classic third album, Bug, from start to finish. Let's consider this the quiet before the quake. Here, Mascis goes it alone, drawing largely from his brilliant new solo album, Several Shades of Why. Those perfect melodies Mascis has made so long get the spotlight they've often deserved, strummed by the heavy hand of their surprisingly gentle frontman. Kurt Vile & The Violators—sonic cousins of and collaborators with The War on Drugs, simply with a sharper focus—open. $16–$18/ 9 p.m. —Grayson Currin

Price: $16-18
