Tue. June 28 | Like Helena Christensen, Chris Isaak is the picture of aging gracefully. The classic-mold singer, actor and David Lynch muse — who turns 60 this week — issued his 12th rock-solid LP, First Comes the Night (Vanguard), in 2015. At 8 p.m. at House of Blues.
Thu. June 30 | Juke-joint blues guitarist and longtime sidekick to Cedric Burnside, Lightnin' Malcolm released his latest album Foot Soldier (Shakedown) in April. He performs at 10 p.m. at d.b.a.
Thu. June 30 | Celebrating/hating Brexit? This offshoot of U.K. metal pioneers Venom — formed last year by cofounders Mantas and Abaddon with '90s-era singer The Demolition Man — has everything you need: a divided monarchy (frontman Cronos soldiers on with Venom), a confused public and lots of screaming. Necrophagia, Sunlord and Six Pack open at 8 p.m. at Siberia.

Mystikal and Juvenile
Fri. July 1 | With his return to the stage, the Taz of New Orleans rap brings with him a full band to keep a near-heavy metal pace with his unpredictable, unmatched flow. Juvenile still carries the torch for New Orleans rap — and he's ushered his son into the family biz, performing on his latest "Peso." At 9 p.m. at House of Blues.
