Live music in New Orleans this week (April 11-17, 2017)

Diamanda Galas, Cashmere Cat, Generationals, Foxygen


Diamanda Galas
Tue. April 11 | Over multiple decades and octaves, Diamanda Galas' hair-raising soprano has defrocked Thelonious Monk and screamed down Jay Hawkins, expanding "classically trained" to include such classical disciplines as continent conquering and serial killing. In March she let loose two new disturbances: All the Way and At Saint Thomas the Apostle Harlem. At 8 p.m. at Joy Theater.


Cashmere Cat
Fri. April 14 | 9, the anticipated debut full-length album from the Norwegian DJ and producer, follows the quirky maximalist pop production work he did for The Weeknd, Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and others. At 11 p.m. at Republic New Orleans.

Fri. April 14 | Every Generationals hook is a wink from Anthony Michael Hall, a blown kiss at Molly Ringwald. The New Orleans-cum-Baton Rouge duo could've scored the closing credits to any John Hughes film; arriving two decades too late, they've settled in as the sweet froth on a chicory-rooted music scene. Psychic Twin opens at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.


Mon. April 17 | Following the overwhelming AM radio glam of 2014's ambitious double LP ...And Star Power, studio perfectionists Foxygen (Sam France and Jonathan Rado) return with 2017's Hang (Jagjaguwar), another unapologetically indulgent pop circus. Gabriella Cohen opens at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
