Nick Hakim and Sam Evian
Tue. Oct. 10 | The sounds bubbling inside Nick Hakim's debut album Green Twins (ATO Records) mirror the faded neons on its cover, depicting a slimy eyeball staring into a mirror on an alien landscape: introspective, psychedelic soul and deep-space grooves. Dreamy pop singer-songwriter Sam Evian opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.


(Sandy) Alex G
Wed. Oct. 11 | Philadelphia's Alex-ander Giannascoli is as indie as indie rockers get: a sideways singer and loner bedroom recorder whose glinting, refracted guitar-and-vocal arrangements on 2014's DSU drew an early-catalog reissue by British imprint Lucky Number Music. His last two releases, Beach Music and this year's prismatic Rocket (Domino), kicked open the bedroom door. Hovvdy and Crumb open at 8:30 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.


Fri. Oct. 13 | Raunchy performance artist and electro-pop star Peaches picked New Orleans women artists to join her in this performance, including DeLish Da Goddess, Sean Yseult and Tif Lamson. Gland opens at 6:30 p.m. at the Music Box Village.


Run the Jewels
Fri. Oct. 13 | Killer Mike and El-P's hip-hop supercollider rocked New Orleans in March at the Buku Music + Art Project in March. The duo released overwhelming eponymous albums in three of the past four years (and one merely "whelming" feline remix, 2015's Meow the Jewels). Denzel Curry and Cuz Lightyear open at 9 p.m. at the Joy Theater.
