Thursday, July 30

Jamaican Queens‘ second album Downers is one of the year’s strongest–and most underrated–releases of the year so far. The Detroit quartet draws from diverse genres to make eerily pleasing pop, blended with lyrics that are a little darker than they initially let on. They open up for Brick & Mortar at the Satellite tonight.

8:30pm. 1717 Silverlake Blvd, Silverlake, CA.

JACK Ü and the Weeknd headline the festival.

12pm. 1101 W McKinley Ave, Pomona, CA.

Fresh from the release of surprise album Star Wars, folk-rock stalwarts Wilco play the Greek Theatre tonight.

Wednesday, check out the side project of Arcade Fire’s Win Butler: DJ Windows 98. Inspired by 90s computer vibes, the vocalist will be performing under his glitchy pseudonym at Constellation Room.
