JEFF the Brotherhood
Tue. June 6 | Nashville duo JEFF the Brotherhood has followed one of the stranger paths to rock semi-stardom: getting a surprise pickup by Warner Bros. for 2012's Dan Auerbach-produced Hypnotic Nights, only to be surprise dropped a month before the release of its 2015 follow-up, Wasted on the Dream (Infinity Cat). The Detail opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
Wed. June 7 | A veteran of the Grand Ole Opry and the Late Show with David Letterman, outlaw country singer Elizabeth Cook presents a solo acoustic set in advance of the June 17 release of her album Exodus of Venus. At 10 p.m. at Chickie Wah Wah.
Corey Henry and
the Treme Funktet
& Mike Dillon Band
Fri. June 9 | Practically born into a brass band, his uncle's Treme Brass Band, and a veteran of his own Lil Rascals and Rebirth brass bands, trombonist Corey Henry is right at home in his brass funk project, the Treme Funktet. Vibraphonist Mike Dillon's band also is on the bill of this free show at 10 p.m. at Tipitina's.

Fri. June 9 | Austin, Texas' Leather Girls spin the delightfully dizzy psychedelic garage rock of Texan predecessors like the 13th Floor Elevators, blasting through the roof on 2017 singles like "Arabian Daze" and "She." Trampoline Team and Bottomfeeders open at 10 p.m. at Circle Bar.
Sat. June 10 | Anchoring a week of queer-centric programming — beginning with a drag edition of Thursday's Fast Times '80s Dance Night and ending with the Bearracuda New Orleans Pride Party on Sunday — is Scissor Sisters' main mister Jake Shears, embarking on his first-ever solo tour. DJ Sammy Jo opens at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
