    Gran Moreno, Alex Maas, Christian Bland, Gus Baldwin

    Fission occurs when a heavy atom splits into multiple lighter ones. Such a reaction occurs Friday, when the nucleus of psychedelic favorites the Black Angels divides into separate solo performances from singer/multi-instrumentalist Alex Maas (8:30pm) and guitarist Christian Bland (7:30pm). The intimate show, live at the LuxeArt Hangar atop the SoCo hill, also welcomes Gran Moreno (9:30pm) – a heavy guitar-n-drums rock duo that formed in Mexico City and now hangs their hat in Austin. Hit it early for Gus Baldwin (6:30pm) who injects songwriting earworms into frantic garage stylings. – Kevin Curtin

    Bratty, Paula Prieto [control room]

    A week after debuting at Coachella, Bratty bandleader Jenny Juárez brought her dreamy-then-spiky bedroom pop to last year’s Austin Psych Fest ahead of Cuco (who she’d previously worked with on lovesick psychedelic wash “Fin Del Mundo”). A notable breakout from Mexico to the stateside alternative music scene, the Culiacán, Sinaloa singer-songwriter cut back on features to return to her swoony pop bona fides on latest album TRES. Also playing with Spanish-language folk influences – through from a more somber, strummy perch – Dallas solo act Paula Prieto joins ahead of her own upcoming Lollapalooza Argentina stop. – Rachel Rascoe

    Verde Verde Verde Festival w/ Aviator, Danger Roosevelt, Yacht Dogs, Relegated, Momiento Cumbia, La Murga de Austin, DJ Stitch

    If you’ve been to an Austin FC match, then you know La Murga de Austin – the supporters section band – is the life of the party. On Friday, they’re bringing that party to Southeast Austin’s Meanwhile Brewing for the Verde Verde Verde Festival, a 6-11pm concert featuring DJ Stitch, Aviator, Danger Roosevelt, Yacht Dogs, Relegated, Movimiento Cumbia, and – big finish – La Murga de Austin themselves. Can’t make it out? Meanwhile lager will be on tap at Q2 when the new season kicks off Saturday. – Kimberley Jones

    The Infinites (album release), the Stacks, dorothy's, Gummy Fang

    Five years after the release of their self-titled debut album, the Infinites have yet to dim their sun-soaked sound and imaginative lyricism. The band’s penchant for storytelling persists on sophomore effort Archetypes, where each song explores the depth of different characters ranging from “The Ghost” to the “Secret Agent.” Subdued electric currents flow throughout the record, jolted by a tag team of rumbling bass notes and grounding drum patterns. Supporting the sophomore release will be the Stacks’ alternative, guitar-heavy antics, dorothy’s jangle-pop ambience, and Gummy Fang’s static twee melodies. – Miranda Garza
