Against Me/Murder by Death/The Sidekicks

Fri., June 22, 7 p.m.

Plenty of punk bands have succeeded purely because they bring the noise. Against Me! does that and the some. Much like the Ramones and the Clash, the band has left its mark because of the great songs it writes. Four years ago at House of Blues, the group kicked off the Alternative Press Music Awards with an invigorating show that really got the mosh pit going. We still consider the band's driving tune “I Was a Teenage Anarchist” to be one of the great punk anthems of all time. Tonight's show supports its latest studio album, 2106's highly personal Shape Shift With Me. Singer Laura Jane Grace wrote the songs on the album, a loose concept album about traveling the world, from what she calls a “trans perspective.” Expect tonight's concert to be an inspiring affair.

Bishop Briggs/L.I.F.T.

Wed., June 27, 8 p.m.

With a tough as nails, unwaveringly soulful voice, Bishop Briggs is taking the alternative music scene by storm. The London native’s debut, Church of Scars, produced 4 Billboard Top 40 Alternative singles. “Wild Horses” opens with an unexpected acoustic intro that leads into a haunting, production-heavy chorus. “Dream” sounds like more of an indie pop song but still maintains her signature flare. “White Flag” is Briggs’ darkest and edgiest track yet; she masters her sound while leading a full choir of backup singers in a chorus that will give you chills. “River,” however, is the clear standout of the four hits. Displaying Briggs’ voice in its rawest form, it pulls influence from both African-American spirituals and R&B, accompanied by hard-hitting bass and percussion that successfully avoid overshadowing Briggs’ stunning vocal. Alternative gurus, Cold War Kids, recruited the crooner for 2017’s “So Tied Up,” which also enjoyed a stay on the Billboard Top 40 Alternative chart. Briggs will be joined by L.I.F.T, newcomers who have found a way to blend indie rock, EDM and rap without overwhelming the listener. The cryptic, melodic “WANNA DIE” is the highlight from its 2018 E.P, AUTOP$Y. (Halle Weber) $25
