Jared Mees & The Grown Children (Thursday, March 10, midnight, Bunkhouse) These Reverb returnees from Portland—led by the record shop-running Mees—should get you dancing with their bright, energetic indie-pop. Listen to: “Shake”
Brahms (Friday, March 11, midnight, Royal Resort, 99 Convention Center Dr.) A New York-based electro trio that’s toured with Passion Pit and remixed Neon Indian, building buzz on Pitchfork and Stereogum along the way. Listen to: “Repeat It”
B. Dolan (Friday, March 11, 12:50 a.m., Beauty Bar) The Rhode Island rapper first gained attention on HBO’s Def Poetry nine years ago; now he’s known for a wild live show he’s described as a “crazy vaudeville circus.” Listen to: “Earthmovers"
Asobi Seksu (Saturday, March 12, midnight, Bunkhouse) Singer Yuki Chikudate and her dream-pop mates have a new album, Fluorescence, and an ethereal sound that’s distinctly, well, Asobi Seksu. Listen to: “Sighs”
Pop Levi (Sunday, March 13, midnight, Beauty Bar) How many British pop singer multi-instrumentalists have a Coachella appearance and a Get Him to the Greek trailer track on the same résumé? Pretty sure it’s just one. Listen to: “Sugar Assault Me Now”
