Live Tonight: The Ghost Inside, Griffin House, Les Nubians, Mike Stud

The Ghost Inside If, while listening to The Ghost Inside’s third album, Get What You Give, you think “Hmm, this sounds a touch like A Day to Remember,” you wouldn’t be too far off. The Los Angeles–based melodic hardcore band’s latest album, which was released last year, was produced by ADTR frontman Jeremy McKinnon. Like McKinnon, The Ghost Inside lead singer Jonathan Vigil is a pro at combining deep screams with clean vocals. And as any good hardcore album should, GWYG also features a ton of double-bass drumming and chunky guitar riffs. Following a world tour of more than 25 countries, The Ghost Inside is capping it with a few dates across the U.S.; catch ’em while you can. With Xibalaba, Reign Supreme, Relentless, Beartooth, Prestige. The Vera Project. 6:30 p.m. $11/ $10 with club card. All ages. AZARIA PODPLESKY

Griffin House This Nashville songwriter plays pleasant, lilting alt-country that projects a distinct nice-guy persona. Based on his looks, he could have a career as a Bill Murray impersonator should he ever quit music. With Megan Slankard. Tractor Tavern. 9 p.m. $15 adv./$18 DOS. ANDREW GOSPE

Les Nubians Fans of forward-thinking R&B are probably already hip to this globetrotting duo, whose largely French-language songs recall those of Erykah Badu at her most globally influenced. Triple Door. 7:30 p.m. (all ages), 10 p.m. (21 and over). $30 adv./$32 DOS. AG

Mike Stud Baseball-to-rap crossover is relatively rare, but this former Duke University pitcher found his way into hip-hop after his playing career got derailed by injury. The title of his debut album, Relief, is a nod to his past as a closer. With Kurt, Adam Nystrom, DJ MTK. Crocodile. 8 p.m. $12 adv. All ages. AG
