Live Tonight: Guitar Wolf, Mark Lanegan, Saxon

Guitar Wolf If you prefer music when it’s blaring out of a garage, tonight is a great night to venture out. Vintage Japanese shredmasters Guitar Wolf will join the Coathangers, Atlanta’s premier lady-punks, responsible for penning classics such as “Don’t Touch My Shit” and “Nestle in My Boobies.” With Coward, Trash Fire. Chop Suey. 8 p.m. $13 adv./$15 DOS. 21 and over. KELTON SEARS

Mark Lanegan The deep-voiced Screaming Trees singer has had an unpredictable solo career, following his artistic muse wherever it takes him. His latest album, Imitations, is a covers record, with songs from his parents’ record collection alongside those from his contemporaries, veering from Neil Sedaka to Nick Cave. With Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss. The Neptune. 8 p.m. $26.50. DAVE LAKE

Saxon As one of the key bands in the new wave of the British heavy-metal movement, Saxon helped define the genre and influenced scores of important metal acts, including Metallica. The current lineup features founding members Bill Byford and Paul Quinn, who have been with the band for nearly 40 years. With Fozzy. Studio Seven. 7 p.m. $20 adv./$25 DOS. DL

Kat Edmonson’s latest, 2012’s Way Down Low, sounds like a record of yesteryear—not in the production, but in the singer’s vocals: The Austin-based songbird makes jazzy pop songs with a vintage twist. Her voice is both fresh and timeless, at times so light it sounds as if it could float away from the music at any second. The Triple Door. 7:30 p.m. $20. All ages. AZARIA PODPLESKY
