The Sonics/Ma Holos/DJ Alright

Fri., March 24, 8 p.m.

When the guys in the Sonics, the proto-garage rock band that formed in Tacoma, Wash. in 1960, first got together, they weren’t particularly good. And yet, the band’s unique approach meant that its music sounded drastically different from everything else that existed. The vocals were harsher, the drums were louder, the electric guitars were more distorted. Even without the ability to play their instruments as well as they would have liked, the guys still wanted to put forth their best effort. So when it came time to record 1967’s Introducing the Sonics, they knew they should have had an arsenal of songs ready to go. But they didn’t. The group would dissolve in 1969. Since reuniting a few years ago, the band has continued to tour and record and some 50 years since the release of their debut, issued This Is the Sonics, their first proper studio album in decades. Recorded in mono by Jim Diamond (White Stripes), the album still retains that raw power for which the band is known. (Niesel) $25

Tropidelic/Broccoli Samurai/Carlos Jones & the PLUS Band/Drunken Sunday

Fri., March 24, 6 p.m.

Regional funk pros Tropidelic return to Cleveland tonight for a hometown bash. Recently, Tropidelic dropped The Hard North, featuring a diverse lineup of slick funk and remixed reggae, dripping with that Cleveland atmosphere. Check out the new take on “Ideal,” which slots an ambient backdrop into the two-four beat. The new stuff here is pretty emblematic of how the band performs their live shows: high-energy multi-instrumentation, with one massive party unfolding in the pit. Trop’s legacy is one of a word-of-mouth fan base in Cleveland and elsewhere, thanks to having “put over 10,000 copies of their first EP in the hands of college kids, festival goers and music fans over the years,” according to the band. Back in December, they played a marquee show to a packed house here in downtown Cleveland. Expect more fun tonight. (Eric Sandy) $20
