MUSIC

Shakedown After Dark

Because Dead & Company shows are known for their brevity, we’re sure you’ll be wanting even more Dead-adjacent jams when the band concludes its gigs at the Sphere this weekend. Shakedown After Dark has you covered. See the Shakedown String Band and the Lonn Calanca Band at 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, respectively, at the Copa Room at the Tuscany. Free; shakedownvegas.com.

MUSIC

Scalp

It’s neither safe nor advisable to pour Drano down your ear holes, but you can approximate the sensation — you know, in a fun way — with the scabrous, feedback-scorched powerviolence of Scalp, who live to overwhelm. See them at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Dive Bar, 4110 S. Maryland Parkway. Tickets are $20; dice.fm.
