Friday, 7/25:

Veruca Salt + Battleme
Music Hall of Williamsburg
9:00 p.m., $25
Since 2010, we've been deep in a '90s nostalgia explosion in which numerous hit makers from the decade have reunited in their original lineups, released new albums, and sold out tours across the world that are typically attended by people in flannel shirts and choker necklaces preserved for just these specific occasions. Veruca Salt is next up to bat, having announced upcoming new music and a concert tour last year. Tonight Louise Post, Nina Gordon, Jim Shapiro and Steve Lack are finally together again for the first time in over a decade, playing those fuzzy post-grunge jams that made them iconic, like '94's massive "Seether," and reminding us that as much as we complain about '90s nostalgia we're still very much in love with it. -- By Brittany Spanos

Rustie
Webster Hall
10:00 p.m., $15
Rustie is a Glaswegian DJ whose productions are a sonic embodiment of rave excess, blaring garish melody lines and sub-rattling bass alongside hyperactive rhythms indebted to hip-hop and trap. His first LP Glass Swords was a maximalist business card Rustie hasn't failed to live up to yet, and the latest, Green Language, features guest verses from the likes of Danny Brown that are sure to drive Webster Hall wild. -- By Aaron Gonsher

The Haden Triplets
The Bell House
9:00 p.m., $15
The Haden Triplets, daughters of late jazz bass legend Charlie Haden, recently released their self-titled debut on Jack White's Third Man Records. The Americana collection's rootsy harmonies endow old chestnuts from brothers Stanley and Louvin, Bill Monroe, and the Carter Family with a heartfelt intimacy and resonant timbre born of the same womb. Despite their father's longtime association with Carla Bley, Ornette Coleman, and Kenny Barron, the apples don't fall far from the tree; after a bout with polio at 15 prematurely ended his singing career with the Haden Family Band, the Iowa-born jazz master began honing his folk-infused style on bass fiddle. The dirge-like "Will You Miss Me" is a timeless farewell. -- By Aidan Levy
