The best Orlando concerts happening this week



Joy Lane

New and impressive electro/post-punk project heads to Lou's as part of a bill including the Coven, Laghima and the Filthy Dineros.

8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24, at Uncle Lou's, free


Local loop/soundscape instrumentalist who recently impressed opening up for Perfume Genius shares the stage with locals Volcanist and Zigtebra from Chicago.

9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25, at Iron Cow, $5


None more cold! Wintery wax aplenty at the only minimal synth night you're gonna find in Florida anywhere north of, say, Miami.

10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, at the Falcon, free


Daniel Lynch from Savannah scum rockers Cray Bags decamped to Chicago awhile back, but will return to the South, if only momentarily, leading his Bummerville band on some touring.

9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Uncle Lou's, $5


New U.K. horror-punk upstarts are getting the look and the sound down to a ghoulishly good sonic proposition. (More Alien Sex Fiend vibes, pls.)

7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 28, at the Plaza Live, $22-$57

Majid Jordan

Fast-rising Canadian R&B twosome keep it fucking sleek, chrome-clean and ridiculously romantic. Romancin' music for Replicants and cyborgs (compliment).

7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29, at the Beacham, $27.50-$130

G3 2018

Joe Satriani! John Petrucci of Dream Theater! And ... Phil Collen of Def Leppard?? Hopefully Collen will show his shredder tourmates the virtues of reining it in and maybe just focusing on the song. (The main riff on "Photograph" will still fuck you up.)

7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30, at Hard Rock Live, $53
