Monday, 6/23:

Primus
The Capitol Theatre
8:00 p.m., $40-$60
The psychedelic court jester of acid rock reunites with guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander for the first tour featuring Primus' original members in years. With a new album rumored to be percolating on the road, the trio has hinted at heading into the studio to cover the Willy Wonka soundtrack, loosely billed as Primus and the Chocolate Factory. Who knows what that confection might be laced with, but if the comestible results of their New Year's 2014 instrumental cover of "Pure Imagination" is any indication, it will represent a return to the thrash fondue that inspired "Sailing the Seas of Cheese." -- By Aidan Levy

Tuesday, 6/24:

Tegan and Sara
Hammerstein Ballroom
8:00 p.m., $39.50
In Tegan and Sara's 13-year career, they've made progressively influential material that has earned them a global following. The Canadian twins are back again, but this time they're playing '90s inspired music influenced by artists many of us have become increasingly nostalgic for this year as electronica seemingly devolves. Released in 2013, Heartthrob is the duo's seventh studio album, filled with infectious singles like "I Was a Fool," "Closer," and "Now I'm All Messed Up"--modern pop/rock that makes you feel young and carefree, in the same vein as Ace of Base or "Baby Baby"-era Amy Grant. Tegan and Sara will be supporting Katy Perry on her Prismatic World Tour in September, which will also mark the anniversary of their much-celebrated fourth album, So Jealous. In the meantime, they'll be doing what they do best: bridging the pop and indie music worlds as they finish up their Let's Make Things Physical tour with The Courtneys--a Vancouver-based slacker pop trio blowing up skirts with their flying nun-influenced punk/pop that also drifts back to the sound of the early '90s. -- By Erin Manning

Kris Davis Residency
The Stone
Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. daily, $15
One of New York's most inventive ensemble players, the pianist can be startling in an array of contexts. That means there should be numerous surprises at this six-night residency, a stretch of gigs that finds Davis trading ideas with a cohort of intrepid associates who are terrifically eloquent with abstraction. From Tom Rainey's Obbligato outfit's inside-out standards to Davis' Capricorn Climber quintet with Mat Maneri's viola generating a chamber feel, to her Death Rattle trio with guitarist Mary Halvorson and saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, it's likely aggression will be poised and subtleties well honed. And if the recent Massive Threads is any indication, her solo piano night might be the most enticing gig of all. -- By Jim Macnie

Wednesday, 6/25:

Evian Christ
Output
10:00 p.m., $15/$20
Though he's gone from Youtube unknown to Kanye West's co-producer in just under three years, British producer Evian Christ has traversed plenty of ground in that time. From maximalist rap to desiccated rhythmic workouts indebted to footwork and trap, Christ's polyglot interests shine in his DJ sets, where dollops of pop and straight R&B soften his usual preference for abrasion. -- By Aaron Gonsher

White Magic
Union Pool
9:00 p.m., $8
What's bewildering about Brooklyn's White Magic: a meager trickle of recorded material. What's awesome about White Magic: what material does exist - including an album here, buncha EPs there, some singles - is amazing in a "psychedelic baroque gin-joint" kind of way, with Mira Billotte's strident chants and and math-piano moxie burrowing in through your third eye. This music is a contradiction: noose-tight and flower-child billowing. It's makers deserve more respect, and a boundless cult. -- By Raymond Cummings
