Speedy Ortiz
Speedy Ortiz is the rare post-punk band that's both musically ferocious and lyrically complex. The Massachusetts quartet began when former NYC rocker Sadie Dupuis felt the music-making urge overtake her once more while studying for her MFA at UMass-Amherst. Since forming in 2011, they've unleashed two full-length albums and three EPs to an increasingly fervent fanbase. Their latest effort, the four-track Real Hair EP, finds the band incorporating slightly more hook-heavy, pop-friendly arrangements on songs like the aptly titled "Everything's Bigger" while still sporting serious love for serrated-edge guitar playing. -Rob van Alstyne
18+, $8/$10, 7:30 PM

Chuck Ragan & the Camaraderie with The White Buffalo and Johnny Two Bags
Chuck Ragan made his name in the seminal post-hardcore band Hot Water Music, but his solo work has taken priority in later years. With the release of Till Midnight, his fourth solo LP, it's time to recognize his accomplishments without the amplifiers. Ragan's solo work is firmly folk, but rooted in country and punk just as much as any singer-songwriter focus. His gruff voice has soothed a touch as he's learned the solo trade, but the themes remain everyman and coarse, songs for calloused hands and broken hearts that prefer to look at the rougher side of life. -Loren Green
