Saint Motel w/ Hippo Campus

Thu., Oct. 27, 8 p.m.

On first listen, Saint Motel sounds like just another radio-friendly, indie-pop band out of L.A. The group changed my mind through a live broadcast from ACL Music Festival that showed depth, improvisation and energy via a horn section. Saint Motel had a couple of hits from their last EP and the first single, “Move,” from last week’s new album, saintmotelevision, is climbing up the charts. Hippo Campus opens. $15-$75

Fri., Oct. 28, 8 p.m.

This Nashville-based duo, comprised of Zack Smith and Caitlin Doyle, does bluesy folk rock right. Take the band’s “Stopgap Woman Blues,” a brisk track that comes alive through harmonica, tambourine and rustic, finger-picked guitar. The group released its sophomore album, Sweet Tennessee Honey, earlier this year and is currently touring to support it. The DuPont Brothers open the show. $10-$12

When the time comes to introduce the significant other to the parents, there’s no stress for some and dread for others.

Now, let’s see how an uptight, normal bunch takes to all that. $27

Kayo Dot, Antares, Solemn Shapes

Mon., Oct. 31, 9 p.m.

Kayo Dot likes to mix things up on the musical front. The group is known for its avant-garde nature, whether its metal, jazz or classically focused. Its latest EP, Plastic House on Base of Sky features harsh, sometimes gloomy electronics that go along with the album’s tone — described as an “exploration of our mechanical post-human future present.” Lyricist Jason Byron has dabbled in the occult, which pairs well with these ethereal vibes. $8

RESCHEDULED: Following up on last year’s “Comedy Camisado Tour” in Charlotte, Hannibal Burress is back with the “Hannibal Montanabel Experience.” The comic started to get shine as Ilana’s sort-of boyfriend on Broad City, but he’s built his own name up and become one of the nation’s most popular stand-up acts since. He’s come a long way from sleeping on the train in Chicago between stand-up gigs during his come-up. $25 and up
