It’s a good week if you’re into punk or bands from Georgia. Other than that, you may just want to check out the Budos Band. You’d basically have to be the biggest square in Squaresville not to enjoy yourself at any Daptone artist’s show.
Monday, April 14
Kick off the week with some local punk. Allston trio Sneeze takes to the tasty quarters of Charlie’s Kitchen, joined by San Francisco’s Couches and some fine local shredders (with Grass Is Green and Idiot Genes; 9 p.m., $5, 21+). Argentinian electro-folk artist Juana Molina stops by The Sinclair, touring behind her latest, October’s “Wed 21” (with St. Nothing; 8 p.m., $20, 18+). Faces on Film’s Stephen Konrads plays Zuzu with his latest band The Eternals (with Spenser Gralla; 10 p.m., free, 21+).
Tuesday, April 15
Athens, GA based indie quartet New Madrid stops by Great Scott (with What Moon Things; 9 p.m., $10, 18+). For a bit of a punkier option, O’Brien’s hosts a massive batch of touring pop punk bands, including Ma Jolie and The Weaks from Philly and Costanza from Chicago. The show also features Trophy Lungs and the first show of Grenades in the Archives, a new band featuring members from Big Girl ( 7 p.m., $8, 21+)
Wednesday, April 16
Atlanta punk trio The Coathangers come through Great Scott along with Cali buds The Audacity (9 p.m., $10, 18+). For something with a bit of funk, Daptone afrobeat collective The Budos Band brings the groove to the Middle East Downstairs (7 p.m., $17, 18+). Minnesota experimental rockers Cloud Cult will play a pretty modestly sized venue in Brighton Music Hall (7 p.m., $15, 18+).
