Monday, March 18
Sindios This three-piece plays fast, technically unimpeachable death metal. With Golgothan Sunrise, Guns of Barisal. 2 Bit Saloon. $5.
Tuesday, March 19
Django Django There are a lot of similarities between contemporaries Django Django and Alt-J, two of England's most-hyped recent musical exports: Namely, both groups spastically blend disparate sounds--synth squiggles, Afrobeat guitar, off-beat samples, and chanted vocals--into something that could still reasonably be described as "indie rock." Django seems like they're having more fun, and their morass of influences is reminiscent of another group of Brits--Hot Chip--who did OK for themselves. With Night Moves. The Neptune. 8 p.m. $17 adv./$20 DOS. All ages.
Wednesday, March 20
Hayden Toronto musician Hayden Desser has toured with Feist and The National, a fitting pairing for his genteel, melancholic indie rock. With Lou Canon, Ghosts I've Met. Tractor Tavern. 9 p.m. $12 av./$15 DOS.

Iceage Recently, the buzz around this Danish hardcore band's suffocating second album You're Nothing has been supplanted by (overwrought, according to some) blog debate about the group's association with white supremacist iconography. The songs are admittedly sharp, but so are those of bands with fewer associations with skinheads. With King Dude, Gag. Barboza. 7 p.m. $12 adv.

Kingdom Crumbs This Seattle collective--Mikey Nice, Jarv Dee, Jerm D, and Tay Sean--is responsible for one of last year's best local hip-hop records, Kingdom Crumbs. Their cloud rap-influenced sound isn't novel (think Main Attrakionz with more lyrical depth or a less-obtuse Shabazz Palaces), but it's always interesting and occasionally brilliant. With THEESatisfaction, Sax G, OC Notes. Neumos. 8 p.m. $12 adv.
Saturday, March 23
Chelsea Light Moving Contrasting the mellower, solo acoustic material he's released in the past few years, Thurston Moore's newest band better approximates the abrasiveness of Sonic Youth. With Grass Widow. Neumos. 8 p.m. $15 adv.
George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic Even at age 71, the Parliament/Funkadelic frontman and funk innovator still tours incessantly to bring P-funk to the masses (including, in 2011, the Gathering of the Juggalos). Showbox at The Market. 8 p.m. Sold out.
