According to Publishers Weekly, Steve Katz’s new memoir Blood, Sweat, and My Rock ’n’ Roll Years: Is Steve Katz a Rock Star? has maybe the most spectacular revelation yet of any Rock memoir.

FIDLAR with The Slippery Lips

Saturday • Thompson House

The first time I heard FIDLAR, I was parked on my couch holding my cellphone over my head and smiling like a massive dork up at the screen. Some cute boy from OKCupid was sending me links to YouTube videos from his favorite bands. The Skate Punk/Surf Rock sounds of FIDLAR made up most of the list.  

Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project

The idea behind Jayme Stone’s all-star group, Lomax Project, is so brilliant it leads one to wonder why no one has thought of it before. Alan Lomax was the legendary song-catcher and in-the-field recorder who went out into rural areas, wrong sides of the tracks and the outskirts of America in the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s to collect obscure ethnic Folk music. Lomax took along a portable reel-to-reel tape recorder and captured the music of many unknown artists who would go on to be recognized by the larger population.  

Peelander-Z with Sweet Ray Laurel and Twin Guns

Japanese music culture has always been adept at absorbing Western musical forms and translating them into familiar but distinctly new concepts. Shonen Knife may have begun as a de facto Ramones tribute, but the band has grown into a unique sonic entity that embraces all genres and reconfigures them into its own singular sound. Given that, what can we make of Peelander-Z?   

Strung Out with Red City Radio, La Armada and The Lockland Brakes

Saturday • Thompson House

Punk was always intended to be fast, loose and fleeting; The Ramones didn’t have a pension plan. Neil Young wasn’t wrong when he noted that it’s better to burn out than to fade away and yet, for every band like The Sex Pistols that existed for a moment in the sun, there’s a band like SoCal’s Strung Out, with an amazingly long history and a potent catalog to back it up.  

The Suicide Machines with Break Anchor, Bastardous, Derek Grant and Loudmouth

In the Ska/Punk canon, no titan stands mightier than 1989’s Energy, the only album from Operation Ivy. But in 1996, Detroit outfit The Suicide Machines came close to matching that shooting star’s power and prowess with their first album, Destruction By Definition.  

Prophet, Sharing

The collaborative-minded Chuck Prophet’s latest, Night Surfer, is one of the best albums of his storied career

Chuck Prophet is making some of the best music of his career. Jangly, unique and rocking, Prophet’s jams should be reaching a bigger audience. But fickleness and modern tastes don’t always coincide with true creativity that may be lying in the grass like a snake.  

Liz Longley with Brian Wright

While there is now a genre of music officially called Americana — a category that can either be characterized as full of diverse artists who aren’t afraid of mixing Roots music in with their sound or as a way to promote and market artists who can’t get on Country radio — there is still an unfortunate desire to drag artists like Liz Longley into the Country music miasma.  

6 String Drag with Hannah Aldridge

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

Band reunions can be joyful, fist-pumping celebrations or dismal funeral services for long deceased entities that should never have been exhumed. If you’re scoring at home, Roots Rock ‘N’ Roll, the first new 6 String Drag album in 18 years, belongs deliriously in the celebratory category.
