Weezer bust onto the scene in 1994 with hits like “Buddy Holly,” “Undone--The Sweater Song,” and “Say It Ain’t So.” The band has been going strong since, putting out ten albums. Although there sound has evolved over the years, the popular and critical acclaim has not.
Wax Idols (Siberia, 8p.m.)
Wax Idols describes their sound as “bitch pop” or “sad core.” The ambiguous descriptors are warranted as their sound is unique: part synth, part doomcore, part new wave, and lots of pop.
Domo Genesis (Hi Ho, 8p.m.)
LA rapper Domo Genesis is an up-and-coming artist from the Odd Future Collective. He has been garnering attention since 2013’s “MellowHigh” collaborative album with MellowHype. He is currently on tour to promote his debut solo album, “Genesis.” For lagniappe, Domo is the inspiration behind the medical marijuana strain “DOMO OG.”
Meschiya Lake & The Little Big Horns (Chickie Wah Wah, 8p.m.)
You’re not likely to mistake Meschiya Lake for any other jazz singer. With fiery hair, colorful tattoos, and a bold singing voice, this South Dakota native turned New Orleans local wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s known for a contemporary update on vintage jazz, brought to life with unique stage presence and deep appreciation for the past. Accompanied by the Little Big Horns, expect lots of big band standards and tracks from their recent “Bad Kids CLub” album.
