Healthy Avian Bones

Indie shoegazers Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk from Lawrence, Kan., may keep it light like hollow avian skeletons on Friday, May 29. (FYI, it’s true. Baby birds don’t consume calcium-based lactation from their mothers. Weighty bones are no good for flying.) Local experimental outfit Yoda’s House and the singer-songwritery Brothers open. Drag your heavy skeletal system, the one that keeps you earthbound, to Winning Coffee Co. (111 Harvard SE) at 7 p.m. $5. (Marisa Demarco)

Sonic Reducer

Will Sellenraad Balance · mewithoutYou it's all crazy! it's all false! it's all a dream! it's alright · Wilco Wilco (The Album)

This is an inspired collection of what could be called Christian campfire songs. mewithoutYou's orchestral, joyful exuberance forms a cocoon around every note and causes the nonstop religious messages to bounce off your skull without causing irritation. The diverse terrain of the album covers accordion waltzes, clip-clop Americana, plodding hymns and remorseful, guitar ballads. There's an innate beauty that shows through every inch of it's all crazy! While instrumentation remains understated, dynamics push toward something epic because of swaying tempos. If you can swallow the God talk, it's all crazy! will reward your tolerance. (SM)

Eternal Recurrence

Holly Rebelle's High School Reunion • Tito Bonito • Mr. Valdez • Mustang Monroe • burlesque, boylesque, variety

That nightmare, again: You're in biology class, trying not to nod off while the teacher drones, and suddenly you notice everyone's gaze focus squarely on you. You're naked, it's test day and you forgot to study. But that's not what's freaking you out. No—it's the plastic jelly bracelets, stirrup pants and side ponytails that cause you to sit up in bed, heart thumping like a '90s boom bap beat. This Saturday, May 26, your dreams are becoming a dayglo-blooded reality at Holly Rebelle's High School Reunion: A Burlesque Tribute to the '90s. The dreaded time machine takes off from the Launchpad at 8pm. Admission is $15 for adults over 21 (anyone younger probably wouldn't get it anyway).
