Cary Hudson & the Piney Woods Players

Chris Isaak
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.


Lightnin' Malcolm
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.

Venom Inc.
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.
