Live music in New Orleans this week (June 7-12, 2016)


Tue. June 7 | Area amp-collectors Caddywhompus kick off their June jaunt with this St. Claude Avenue sendoff, joined by Austin, Texas' Boyfrndz and Residual Kid and Baton Rouge's' power-popping Melters. At 9:30 p.m. at Siberia.

Wed. June 8 | Performing Olympic guitar sprints behind a slasher mask with a KFC bucket on his head, Brian Patrick Carroll looks like a psycho killer on a midnight snack break. Carroll was born two months before Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, a fact that makes his 260-plus solo studio recordings (and dozens of group projects) seem no more feasible. At 8 p.m. at House of Blues.


Feufollet and The Deslondes
FRI. JUNE 10 | Lafayette's Cajun rock 'n' rollers and psych-folk troubadours share the stage with singer Aurora Nealand for a set of swamp pop jukebox classics. New Orleans' honky tonk favorites The Deslondes share the bill before a U.K. tour. Alligator Chomp Chomp DJs also spin swamp pop and R&B. At 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.


Bethlehem Steel
Sun. June 12 | Becca Ryskalczyk's voice purrs above the Buffalo-bred, Brooklyn-based trio's snowy blankets of feedback and fuzz on the band's pop-punky 2015 EP Docking. New York punks Stringer are also on the bill at 10 p.m. at Saturn Bar.


Sun. June 12 | Weezer's 10th (10th!) album, its fourth self-titled release (cheekily dubbed The White Album), thankfully shares some DNA with its fan-treasured early LPs. Unnecessarily punctuated pop band Panic! At the Disco opens for its heroes at 6:30 p.m. at Champions Square.
