The Folks at The Deli

Oblio, the new album from experimental lo-fi trio Old Maybe, was released yesterday via local label Apollonian Sound, and tonight, they celebrate with a performance at Space 1026. The record jars with its bouts of fits and starts. It rushes at you, then peels off, focusing on the current state of personal affairs, and then sinks into a balance of chaos and funk. Dive into the delightful disorder. Old Maybe will be joined by the similarly-minded, rousing experimentation of Hermit Thrushes, whose new LP Potsherd Gold Meadow is a set of quick-bursting tracks that are loaded with momentary, comforting bells and whistles. A pair of New York-based psych-rock outfits in Jepeto Solutions and Cloud Becomes Your Hand, whom also has a new album, Rest In Fleas, in tow, complete this All Mutable presented billing. Space 1026 (1026 Arch St.), 8pm, $7, All Ages - Michael Colavita

This Saturday, in support of restoring the Baltimore Book Thing to its former, unburnt glory, you can catch a killer charity show at Peabody Heights Brewery starting at noon. In what will practically be a small music festival, you can rock out to some of Baltimore's best and hottest bands of today. Tickets are $12 in advance here and $15 at the door. Go listen to some good tunes for a great cause to kick off your Memorial Day weekend.

Having just landed their recent EP on Spotify and iTunes, The Milestones will be sharing their beautiful alt-dance tomorrow. Playing a rash of shows in DC and Baltimore, this foursome features very talented performers and they know how to hypnotize your feet into a might fine dance. Be sure to see Sun Club's performance, as they've been mixing up their live show lately, experimenting with some Animal Collective-style atmospheric noise rock. They've recently shared the stage with the likes of Ra Ra Riot and PWR BTTM, so you know they have jams worth hearing. Bringing in some hot, spaced-out funk is Greasy Hands, a quartet that blends soulful riffs and synth-heavy key action into a merry-go-round of sound, making you move and dance along. Many more artists (too many to list here) will be also playing to support a meaningful fixture in the Baltimore community, so get out there! -Jonathan Goodwin

It begins with an almost-inert drone and then...it just goes off! That's the blistering new track by Pink Mexico, "Buzz Kill", a fiery scorcher that fires all cylinders with uncompromising guitar fuzz. The Robert Preston-led project has found a new home with Burger for their upcoming full-length fool, which promises loads of humorous self-depreciation set against genuinely confident songwriting.

With their third full-length album NERVE (SRA Records) hot and fresh off the press, Philly post-punk trio Psychic Teens is poised to inject this city’s music scene with a nourishing dose of melodic gloom. The new LP continues in the same vein of early 80's goth rock that put them on the radar of many prestigious publications. Down to lead singer Larry Ragone’s deep vocal timbre, the band obviously has a high opinion of the dark and brooding stylings of Bauhaus, but in a modish contemporary twist, they add the fluid textural blend of shoegaze to the instrumentation. You can catch Psychic Teens divvying out the hot rocks this Saturday at Johnny Brenda’s with Vivatape, the new wave noir band from an 80's interpretation of a dystopian future, and Mt. Billions, who walk the line between Wooden Shjips-style psychedelic noise rock and True Widow stoner drone. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 Frankford Ave, 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock
