    Jack White

    According to this month’s Rolling Stone cover story, Jack White (né Gillis) finally unholstered Pro Tools for March’s third solo album Boarding House Reach, which debuted at the top chart spot on Billboard. That explains its schizophrenia. Nevertheless, whether quaking Stubb’s in 2003 with the White Stripes, muddying ACL Fest 2007 behind the Raconteurs, mowing Zilker Park again in 2012 conducting the Dead Weather, and blowing out eardrums during an Austin City Limits taping that same year, Detroit’s favorite rocker abides.

    Lloyd Cole

    Lloyd Cole’s heyday may have been a quarter-century ago, but that hasn’t stemmed the beloved Brit’s steady stream of songcraft and staying on the road. The former leader of the Commotions keeps his retrospective tour going in celebration of the Collected Recordings 1983-1989 box set, which assembled his work with said group, and In New York: Collected Recordings 1988-1996. Expect tunes from 2013’s Standards as well.

    The Residents

    San Francisco multimedia art collective the Residents have been famous for their bizarre stage shows, prolific release schedule, mainstream obscurity, and carefully-curated anonymity (recently broken by composer Hardy Fox’s reveal and subsequent retirement) for four decades. Armed with a catalog in the double digits, enough costumes and props to stock a film studio, and 2017 LP The Ghost of Hope, the group offers a uniquely avant-garde evening.

    Tune-Yards, My Brightest Diamond

    Merrill Garbus and Nate Brenner ply an electro-folk that falls closer to a total sonic collage. Over the past nine years, Tune-Yards’ output has oscillated wildly from dance floor and world beats to avant-garde punk, Garbus’ voice either soulful or immersed in alien distortion. January’s electrified and eclectic fourth full-length I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life confronts cultural appropriation and whiteness in indie music.
