Quintron and Miss Pussycat
Tue. Oct. 31 | Quintron and Miss Pussycat being absent for Halloween 2016 felt like Santa Claus taking a Christmas off. The duo resumes its residential ways at One Eyed Jacks, joined by Nora Keyes and the Invisible Elf Witch, DJ Alix Brown, Spellbreaker and Delish da Goddess. At 9 p.m.
Thu. Nov. 2 | Following a run with death metal progenitors Cannibal Corpse, Gatecreeper — whose guttural, gut-grinding 2016 LP Sonoran Depravation (Relapse) is still raising the dead in 2017 — crawls into New Orleans with black metal swamp things Barghest at 7 p.m. at the Mudlark Theatre.
Iron & Wine
Sat. Nov. 4 | After several platters blurred by an expanding palette — including two duet records in 2015-2016 — Sam Beam returns to his pristine creek-and-cradle roots (and original label Sub Pop) on August release Beast Epic, another sweetly whispered celebration of endless numbered days. At 9 p.m. at the Joy Theater.
