Soft Kill
Wed. March 7 | Distilling dark, moody post-punk from the tepid waters of Portland, Oregon, Soft Kill follows 2016's Choke with May release Savior (Profound Lore), sending its mourning transmissions through smoke machine-covered guitars. Choir Boy, Silver Godling and Trashlight open at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.


Willie Nelson & Family
Thu. March 8 | A one-man lobby for the benignity of marijuana, Willie Nelson laments his own longevity on forthcoming LP Last Man Standing (Legacy): "Waylon and Ray and Merle and old Norro lived just as fast as me / I still got a lotta good friends left, and I wonder who the next will be." Somehow he sings it with a smile. At 8 p.m. at House of Blues.
