Ty Segall
Fri. May 26 | Bookending dozens of solo and band recording projects (and everything in between), Ty Segall's earliest and latest releases are both eponymous albums captured a decade apart — a time span so vast for the daily skin-shedder and sonic manipulator, he's come full live-to-tape circle. The Detail opens at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Jacqui Naylor Quartet
Sat. May 27 | Jazz singer Jacqui Naylor is known for her vocal range and bending rock and pop songs into other genres. With her quartet, she's made a gimmick out of the mashup scheme, for example, recording the lyrics of "My Funny Valentine" over an acoustic string version of AC/DC's "Back in Black." At 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. at Snug Harbor.

Trey Songz
Sat. May 27 | On his seventh album Tremaine (Songbook/Atlantic), R&B singer/body linguist Trey Songz drops his pseudonym and his defenses, faux-complaining, "All they want is my sex." Well, yeah. Mike Angel opens at 9 p.m. at The Orpheum Theater.
