The Airborne Toxic Event
Fri. April 4 | Authors of the kind of grand, anthemic pronouncements that drive auto advertisements and HBO montages, L.A.'s Airborne Toxic Event have, like the Killers and Florence Welch before them, seized a moment. The band's Springsteen-pumping third album, Such Hot Blood (Island), is indie rock on growth hormones. Sleeper Agent opens at 8 p.m. at the Old U.S. Mint.

Bach Around the Clock
Fri.-Sat. April 4-5 | The annual celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday is a 29-hour music marathon featuring Ellis Marsalis, Helen Gillet, musicians from the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, New Orleans Trombone Choir, resident organist Albinas Prizgintas and many others. At Trinity Episcopal Church.

The Queers with Joystick
Fri. April 4 | Local ska punks Joystick hit the album-release jackpot: a headline spot for the Queers, New Hampshire's least-likely-to-make-30 alumnus, still going strong on its 11th studio release, 2010's Back to the Basement (Asian Man). Pears and Bujie and the Highrise open at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Marnie Stern
Sat. April 5 | Closing out Brooklyn Brewery's weeklong Mash Bash events is the borough's fire-fingered guitarist, whose 2013 album The Chronicles of Marnia (Kill Rock Stars) earned acclaim for Stern's wild, whiplashing guitar-pop. Admission is free, Brooklyn's beer is not. New Orleans fuzzy pop-punks Native America open at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
