In an attempt to economically cover eclectic shows, we shook the music section format up a bit. This week’s Shows Up! proffers aural sweets for music lovers of all stripes. Whether they’re into Native rock and roll, jazz, post-punk or marrow-melting psych rock, live music fans have no reason to be bored this week. Tonight, check out Nativity in rock at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) during Rock the 9 or cruise to The Fe for the touring version of the Monterey Jazz Festival. If you head north on Friday, there’s more yummy punk to lap up, and, on Tuesday, Canadian psych-rock fivesome Black Mountain hypnotizes at Launchpad. Peep related A/V below. Low Spirits • Rock the 9 • Dawa • I Conscious • Ed Kabotie • Jim Ruel • Thu Apr 25 • 9 pm • $10 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com
