Nov. 15

Son Volt

7 p.m. at the Social, thesocial.org, $25-$30

Before "alt-country" became the provenance of modern boy-bands like Mumford & Sons and even the qualifier "alt" just seemed wrong, cosmic cowboy Jay Farrar was setting the twangy, melancholic template with his Son Volt. Though still indelibly associated with his first band, country-punk godfathers Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt has been going for far longer – since 1995, in fact – and 10 albums in, Farrar's work speaks for itself. Ragged glory all the way.

Nov. 16

Waxahatchee

7 p.m. at the Social, thesocial.org, $15-$17

Katie Crutchfield's Waxahatchee has come a long way from spirited beginnings in the DIY punk cassette underground. Now Waxahatchee record for Merge and share stages with New Pornographers, richly deserved rewards for a songwriting talent as singular as Crutchfield. Crutchfield and Waxahatchee are touring behind fourth album Out in the Storm, an emotional tour-de-force that melds sharp pop sensibilities with an even sharper production.

Dec. 1

Poptone

6 p.m. at the Beacham, thebeacham.com, $30-$40

A dream come true for goths and college rockers "of a certain age" and darkly inclined young'uns: Poptone is Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets and Tones on Tail (joined by Haskins' daughter Diva Dompé) running through the greatest moments of all three groups. Expect a postpunk primer.

Dec. 8

The Kills

6 p.m. at the Beacham, thebeacham.com, $25

U.K. vampire-blues duo the Kills descend upon the Beacham for a special one-off Orlando show as a warm-up for their appearance at the Off Weekend Festival in Miami. Although the Kills live are a full band now, the full sonic and visual focus is still on the sweaty, psychosexual chemistry between mainstays Alison Mosshart and Jaime Hince. Sure to fry our little brains.

Dec. 11

Of Montreal

7 p.m. at the Abbey, abbeyorlando.com, $20-$23

Indie-pop darlings and fearless innovators Of Montreal are revisiting their past and future simultaneously with this tour supporting their newly released album, Rune Husk, and the reissue of Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer. Last year, the Kevin Barnes-fronted outfit captivated a sold-out Social with a phantasmagoria of sound, lights and dancers in the audience. Who knows what they'll pull off in the larger Abbey venue?

Dec. 14

Harley Flanagan

8 p.m. at Will's Pub, willspub.org, $15-$18

Harley Flanagan, bloody-but-unbowed NYHC pioneer and former Cro-Mags mainstay, has lived the kind of life that's impossible to breezily sum up. Fortunately, he did it himself with his candid memoir Hard-Core: Life of My Own, which we reviewed excitedly last year. But now Flanagan is returning to his primary vocation – music – and hitting the road solo for a string of Florida shows this winter. The man is kinetic intensity defined.music@orlandoweekly.com
