Indian Wars are from Vancouver, but based on their bluesy, ramshackle country rock, it’s easy to mistake them for a group of wizened dive bar vets from the American Southwest. With Fuzzy Cloaks, Wimps, So Pitted. Comet Tavern. 9 p.m. $8.

Mark Farina is known for both his prodigious DJ sets and the “mushroom jazz” genre they helped spawn in the early ’90s: a mixture of Chicago house and acid jazz with the laid-back grooves of West Coast hip hop. With DJ Riz Rollins, Wesley Holmes. Neumos. 8 p.m. $15 adv.

Saturday, June 29

Chino y Nacho Self-proclaimed “kings of urban music,” former boy band members Jesús Perez and Miguel Mendoza are more popular in their native Venezuela than in the U.S., but their club-ready, reggaeton-indebted tracks don’t sound all that different from much of what’s on KUBE 93. Showbox SoDo. 8 p.m. $41.50 adv./$51.50 DOS. All ages.
