Faster Pussycat L.A. rockers Faster Pussycat didn’t quite achieve the stardom of contemporaries Guns n’ Roses, but they had a run with goodtime party hits from the late ’80s through the early ’90s. Founder/singer Taime Downe remains the only original member, but the blokes still rock and, aside from some industrial rock experimentation, the bottom line remains glam, sleaze rock and hair metal. With Venrez and Hair Nation. $13/$15. Tremont Music Hall. (Samir Shukla)

Lana Rebel Leaning at times to the Cowboy Junkies or Lucinda Williams and at moments on old schoolers like Loretta Lynn, Lana Rebel’s dusty country music is moody and sparse. She writes wind-strewn tales that populate the recent release, Mistakes We Can Live With, recorded with her band the Broken Promises. Also on the bill: Broken Napoleons and Nightingale News. $5. Snug Harbor. (Shukla)

Memphis May Fire Sure, there are a ton of bands doing the hard alterna-rock that the Memphis May Fire spews. The guitars, akin to tires spinning in the mud, are touched-up with good ole Southern rock and sharp lyrics that keeps this combo from getting mired in the masses. The alternating sung and growled vocals keep a decent balance. With Decoder, Ten After Two, and That’s Outrageous. $10/$12. Amos’ Southend. (Shukla)

Jon Lindsay Charlotte musician Jon Lindsay is the latest to get the live q&a treatment in this ongoing series at the Evening Muse. Offering a different kind of concert than you’d normally see, artists are asked about their songwriting process, lyrical content and more in between acoustic or stripped down versions of their songs. $7. 8 p.m. The Evening Muse.
