Rebirth Brass Band carries the torch of New Orleans brass band music while pushing the genre forward

Sat 6/23, 6 PM, Temperance Beer Co., 2000 Dempster, Evanston, $30

    Rebirth Brass Band carries the torch of New Orleans brass band music while pushing the genre forward
    In a sense, New Orleans brass band music is much like acappella doo-wop. The better practitioners of either style can make you forget you're listening to a wordless art form where the music does the talking. On the Louisiana home turf of the Rebirth Brass Band, that legacy is something to be taken seriously.

Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Sarah Louise’s new Deeper Woods is a love letter to the natural world

Wed 6/27, 8:30 PM, Constellation, 3111 N. Western, $15, 18+

    Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Sarah Louise's new Deeper Woods is a love letter to the natural world
    Fingerstyle guitar is a peculiar thing-it's a practice that often sucks its practitioners into a rabbit hole at the expense of other approaches. That's certainly not the case with Sarah Louise (née Sarah Louise Henson), the North Carolinian who made her mark with a couple of dazzling solo instrumental albums before demonstrating a larger sonic palette with her Appalachian-flavored folk duo House & Land.

The neon-lit bar at Lawrence and Broadway, now a legendary jazz club, has been around for 107 years—and has more stories than any tavern in town. Here are a few from the past three decades.

    New Jersey posthardcore giants Thursday revisit the two albums that made them legends
    I'd rather not describe New Jersey posthardcore heroes Thursday in nostalgic tones, but the group played such a part of my early musical development it's hard not to.

    Mamby on the Beach presents a human mixtape of longtime favorite artists and rising talent
    If you're going to spend an entire summer day in the sun at a music festival, why not pick the one that takes place right on the lakefront? The Oakwood Beach location of Mamby on the Beach sure is inviting, but scenic surroundings aside, the two-day music event boasts one of the ballsiest cross-genre bills of any midsize fest in town.

    Two generations of noisy oddballs from the LA underground descend on Chicago
    Veteran LA noise maven John Wiese has dramatically slowed his release schedule in recent years, but he's made up for that relative scarcity by increasing the rigor in each project. Last month he dropped Continuous Hole (Gilgongo), a stunning collaboration with Drew Daniel of Matmos that redirects his penchant for sonic violence.

    Paal Nilssen-Love's Large Unit explores varied compositional gambits through large-scale improvisation
    It's no small feat that Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love has maintained his sprawling, heavily improvised big band-the dubiously named Large Unit-for half a decade in an era where economic realities are at odds with keeping an actively recording and touring group of international players together.

Fri 6/22, 9 PM, Hungry Brain, 2319 W. Belmont, free, 21+

The neon-lit bar at Lawrence and Broadway, now a legendary jazz club, has been around for 107 years—and has more stories than any tavern in town. Here are a few from the past three decades.

    Chicago rock vet Thomas Comerford's new album Blood Moon was worth the four-year wait
    Thomas Comerford­ is a devoted student of rock music who takes his own contributions to the form as seriously as its rich history. He operates with meticulous detail and patience, which might explain why it's been four years since his last release, the 2014 album II.
