Thursday, May 12, 2016

HALLELUJAH THE HILLS Boston's favorite rocker-litterateurs have a lot to celebrate right now: 10 years of making friends and influencing people; five fine albums, including the newest, "A Band Is Something to Figure Out"; and at last a drummer who's stuck around for two straight LPs. Hallelujah! May 12, 9 p.m. $10. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

YEASAYER With "Amen & Goodbye," issued on Mute in April, this whimsical Brooklyn cabal tied together strands from previous albums — Beatlesque earworms, neon electronica, fuzzy ballads, alien-world music — into a gently and generously wonky serving of art-pop gems touching on the political, the personal, and where the two meet. May 13, 8 p.m. $25. Paradise Rock Club. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

TOGETHER BOSTON Opening night for this weeklong festival of technology, art, and music brings a live set from Floating Points, a.k.a. UK producer/DJ Sam Shepherd. Madame Gandhi, the fierce duo of LA drummer-vocalist Kiran Gandhi and Berklee-schooled sound designer Alexia Riner, shares the bill. (For a complete schedule, see www.togetherboston.com.) May 15, 8 p.m. $20, advance $18. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200, www.sinclaircambridge.com
