FLAG, by Dmitri Coats

The ticket: Pop music
Sunday, June 26, 2016

FLAG Whatever one makes of the turmoil continually afflicting the iconic hardcore-punk band Black Flag, there's no denying the abrasive catharsis songs like "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie," "TV Party," and "My War" provide — and no better way to hear them played right than by ex-members Keith Morris, Dez Cadena, Chuck Dukowski, and Bill Stevenson, joined by Descendents guitarist Stephen Egerton. June 26, 7 p.m. $28, advance $25. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200,

PETER GABRIEL + STING They're playing together and even doing each other's songs; if you've ever wanted to hear Gabriel sing "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" or Sting do "Shock the Monkey," here's your chance. The tour's called "Rock Paper Scissors" so presumably the match ends in a draw. July 2, 8 p.m. $45-$250 DCU Center, Worcester. 800-653-8000.

PERE UBU The inimitable David Thomas hits town with the latest iteration of his long-running art-punk cabal on their "Coed Jail!" tour, which focuses on pitch-black classics from 1975 to '82: "Heart of Darkness," "The Modern Dance," "Final Solution," and so on. June 27, 8 p.m. $25. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200,

TREDICI BACCI Composer, arranger, and guitarist Simon Hanes is the creative force behind Tredici Bacci, a 14-piece pop orchestra that specializes in the slinky, seductive sounds of Italian sex-romp soundtracks. Sharing this Boston Hassle bill are Erica Eso, the new synth-pop project from Weston Minissali (Hanes's bandmate in indie-rock sextet Cloud Becomes Your Hand), plus locals JOSS and Sydney Kinchen. June 30, 8 p.m. $10. Out of the Blue Too Gallery, Cambridge.
