Surf Curse/LALA LALA/The Scuzzballs

Tue., Aug. 22, 8 p.m.

Stripping down a youthful garage rock sound to just a guitar and a drum kit (and two voices), Surf Curse dropped a pleasant album earlier this year in Nothing Yet. Throughout the nine songs, Nick Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck weave a classic surf rock sound through lo-fi production. Rubeck, on guitar, flips some really nice and simple riffs against Rattigan’s energetic drumming. Take “All is Lost,” which comes toward the end of the album and features a crashing beat over the painful lyric, repeated over and over, “‘cause I lost you again!” There’s enough variety on this album (and their earlier stuff) to keep you hooked, and you can tell that there’s a physicality to this music that will translate well onstage. “The Strange and the Kind” has been getting a lot of the press this year, and its ethereal melodies make a great anchor for the album and, surely, tonight’s set.

Logic/Joey Bada$$

Wed., Aug. 23

Fresh off his chart-topping Billboard album, Everybody, Logic hits Jacobs Pavillion alongside fellow east coast rapper Joey Bada$$ tonight. The duo has a complementary fanbase; Logic’s forceful, occasionally scattered reflections on identity and social issues are at the forefront of his recent music, and New York native Bada$$ has made a name for his young self as a sharp-tongued skeptic since his first mixtape, 2012’s phenomenal 1999. Bada$$ barrelled into 2017 with the charged “Land of the Free,” fiery political bars over an incongruously cheery interpolation of Biggie’s “Juicy” released on inauguration day. His album, All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, brings more of the same, tempered by the spacious, communal single “Devastated.” Standing as an implied alternative to today’s Soundcloud rap, expect a conscious, youthful crowd to be rocking along to these youngsters on west bank of the Flats.

Buffalo Jazz Octet

Wed., Aug. 23, 7 p.m.

Like Cleveland, in some ways, Buffalo has an extraordinary jazz heritage. The titans of American jazz all passed through our Rust Belt cousin, especially in the 1970s. The Colored Musicians Club still stands in downtown Buffalo, where black musicians unionized in the early 20th century to make their own way in the city’s discriminatory music scene. (This happened in many major cities.) Now, the Buffalo Jazz Octet carries a tradition of groundbreaking instrumentation forward. We’ve been keeping an eye on them, and it’s exciting to have them in Cleveland tonight. Not long ago, JazzBuffalo called their show “spellbinding,” and we’re looking forward to that sort of spirit at the Bop Stop. (Eric Sandy) $12

Lady Gaga

Wed., Aug. 23, 7:30 p.m.

Following the under-performance of 2013's ARTPOP, Lady Gaga needed to regroup. Putting those meat dress days far behind her, the artist sought to prove her true musical prowess. She made a duet record with Tony Bennett and slayed the Academy Awards with a Sound of Music tribute. And last year's Joanne was by far her most personal record yet. She dedicated it to her late Aunt Joanne. Tonight, one of the biggest queens of pop comes back to Quicken Loans Arena to show off every aspect of her career — from the classy to the dirty — to the delight of her fans, aka Little Monsters.
