HEAR

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters I would attend, but I’m Going to California. There was a Communication Breakdown among my friends, and of course it’s Nobody’s Fault but Mine. But hey, Rock and Roll, right? In My Time of Dying, I doubt I’ll regret it too much. Still, it’s a real Heartbreaker. I hear Plant’s new posse plays Zep songs. That’s the Way I had hoped it would be. With JD McPherson. May 28, 8 p.m., $76.50, Brooklyn Bowl.

Our Big Concert Local rock station X107.5 puts on another edition of OBC, featuring on-the-rise rock and electronic acts you’ve no doubt heard all over the airwaves. Alt-rockers Cage the Elephant headline, with support from the reggae-ish Dirty Heads, “Dangerous” electro artists Big Data and Joywave and poppy Danish band New Politics. That’s $8 per band, y’all. May 28, 5 p.m., $40, Cosmopolitan.

The Glitch Mob If you’re looking for a more intimate place to see the revered LA breakbeat electronic trio than the EDC main stage—where it played last year—Brooklyn Bowl has you covered. New Jersey synth man Com Truise and Portland, Oregon, bass artist EPROM open. May 31, 7 p.m., $23.
