Wolf Alice

8:30 p.m. • Turf Club • $12-$14

London rockers Wolf Alice generated a big U.K. buzz that carried over to South by Southwest in March and got them signed up stateside by RCA Records, which will release their full-length debut in June. Aloof frontwoman Ellie Rowsell’s pretty, poppy voice is contrasted sharply by fiery, frayed guitar work and often stormy climaxes à la the Joy Formidable. Could be an “I was there” kind of gig should the hype play out well. Made Violent opens. Chris Riemenschneider


Lady Lamb

8:30 p.m. • 7th Street Entry • 18-plus • $11-$13

Lady Lamb, actually just 25-year-old Aly Spaltro, is overflowing with creative energy. Her folky take on indie rock is rife with musical and lyrical intricacies, and Spaltro makes a point to challenge the listener with twists and turns, often introducing key changes or new instruments (like a horn or a banjo) in unexpected places. The Maine native is currently touring in support of her emotional and musically complex sophomore record, “After.” Garage-rockers Rathborne open. Alex Nelson
