Feed Me at House of Blues
Jonathan Gooch, aka Feed Me, has an appetite for electronic music—so much so that he regularly feasts on drum ’n’ bass, dubstep and electro-house.

Judas Priest at The Joint
The appropriate adjective is “textbook,” as in “Judas Priest is textbook metal.” The band that gave us such classic headbangers as “Breaking the Law” and “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’” ought to be taught to lesser musicians and engraved on gold records we send into deep space. With Uriah Heep. 8 p.m., $49-$77. –Geoff Carter

Three Shows on June 29
It’s the classic good news/bad news scenario for local sonic explorers on June 29: three promising, small-venue shows that will require a single choice.
LA quintet Mystic Braves’ sunny psych-pop traces back through Elephant 6 to the shag rug’d garages of the late ’60s. If you’re feelin’ extra groovy, head to Zia Record Exchange on Rainbow at 2 p.m. for a matinee performance. With The Acid Sisters, Sea Ghouls. 9 p.m., $12-$15, Bunkhouse Saloon.
Fans of artful singer-songwriters like Ryley Walker and Tim Buckley should consider Eamon Fogarty, an East Coaster now based in Santa Barbara. His unhurried arrangements impressed on 2017 LP Progressive Bedroom, and judging from Grizzly Bear-ish preview track “Gods’ Guts,” July follow-up Blue Values will mark another step forward. With Bad Girls’ Smoking Lounge, The Quacks. 9 p.m., donations accepted, Starboard Tack.
And it’s not every day you catch Coachella and FYF fest alums in one intimate, all-ages venue, but NoCal punk five-piece Ceremony—on Matador Records’ roster—and lively Philly power-pop foursome Sheer Mag are really sharing a bill Downtown. With Bugg, Spitting Image. 7 p.m., $15-$18, American Legion Post 8. –Spencer Patterson
With a solidified new lineup and a memorable new record, now is the time to catch Chris Crisci and company.
Unraveling Identity at Sahara West Library feels like a public service announcement on sexual and gender diversity.
