The best concerts coming to Orlando this week




Combining hip-hop and spoken word pyrotechnics with spare and jazzy live instrumentation, Listener conjures up vivid atmospheres and soundscapes for the ... well, listener.

8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, at Backbooth, $13


Midwestern post-hardcore group are pushing the boundaries of their chosen genre to the breaking point, injecting harmony, choral interludes and avant angularity.

6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Social, $17-$20

Wax Tailor

Impossibly suave and poised French trip-hop beatmaker holds court at the Social. Necks will snap.

8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at the Social, $20-$25

Dwight Yoakam

Outlaw country legend plays a lone Central Florida show at the Founders' Day Festival in Ocoee. Gird your loins against the ominous promise of "family fun," but it's free!

7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at Bill Breeze Park, Ocoee, free

UCF Percussion Ensemble

Free show by UCF's much vaunted drum collective; prepare for a challenge (in a good way).

4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, at the UCF Visual Arts Building, free

The Hotelier

Ferociously anthemic young indie-punk outfit seems like they are going to spontaneously combust midway through each song. See it for yourself.

7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6, at Backbooth, $14-$17


Rescheduled show from earlier this year from this Richmond earbleeder outfit; show also featured the return of local d-beat wreckers Disgender.

8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, at Uncle Lou's, $5
