Michael Deeds recommends

Merchandise: Tuesday, The Olympic. This hard-to-categorize Florida rock group has evolved beyond its punk roots. Its sixth album, last year’s “A Corpse Wired for Sound,” is an impressive, widescreen-like experience.

Low Cut Connie: Tuesday, Neurolux. Much like Ben Folds, frontman Adam Weiner packs a piano punch. LA Weekly wrote, “Their ferocious live show ... is unmatched in all of rock right now.”
