Picks This Week: Orezi, Abbey Death, Stereolad and more



Magic Man
Magic Man are a hyper-catchy young electro-rock band that are either gonna cause you to dance energetically the second the song hits or batter you to death with sugary hooks. The choice is(n't) yours.
7 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, at the Social, $15-$17

When electro-punkers !!! (Chk Chk Chk) headline the Social on Thursday, they'll be opening for themselves in the guise of their Stereolab tribute side project, Stereolad. Yeah, that was a genuine smile.
8 p.m. Thursday, May 26, at the Social, $18-$20

Nigerian dance sensation Orezi crafts sleek R&B-flavored anthems that deftly mix the tropes of U.S. club jams with the sounds of his home country to be utterly undeniable.
9 p.m. Friday, May 27, at the Rotary Club, 475 S. Kirkman Road, $30-$50

Abbey Death
Heavy duty industrial-glam (the genre starts here) from this mixed-gender duo featuring members of Combichrist and Genitorturers. Pitch-perfect goth sleaze.
7 p.m. Saturday, May 28, at Bombshell's Tavern, $10-$12

Head Games
The tribute band game is getting even more niche and specialized, as this band, who specialize in Foreigner covers and Foreigner covers only, will attest. Only one thing is certain in life: that you will hear "Hot Blooded."
7 p.m. Sunday, May 29, at House of Blues, $8.75

Mobile Deathcamp
An Ohio-based thrash trio that never lost faith in Anthrax, Vio-lence and Overkill when everyone else was trying on chain wallets and board shorts. Plus one dude used to be in GWAR.
7 p.m. Monday, May 30, at Bombshell's Tavern, $12-$15

The Cloth
Super-grungy, scuzzy, hard-traveling hatepunk trio from Philly will make you long for the days when Amphetamine Reptile was still a thing. Or just go to this and stop living in the past already.
8 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, at Uncle Lou's, $5
