The Wailers

Reggae/rock

8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14

Miner’s Foundry (Nevada City)

A band now legendary in its own right, the Wailers have maintained a worldwide touring schedule for nearly 40 years following the death of their iconic leader Bob Marley in 1981. If you’ve never been to a show at the deliciously cozy and distinctly unique Miner’s Foundry, well, no time like the Wailers to check that box. $30 adv/ $35 door. www.minersfoundry.org.

Against Me! With Bleached

Rock

7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12

Ace of Spades

Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace’s vocals drive the pummeling hard rock mastery of the band’s latest album, “Shape Shift With Me.” Bleached, a vivacious upstart rock/punk trio led by sisters Jennifer and Jessica Clavin, opens the show, $23. www.aceofspadessac.com.

The Gold Souls

Blues/soul/rock

9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen (Davis)

Given the throwback sultry sass steaming off of lead singer Juniper Waller and the smoking lounge soul laid down by her fellow Gold Souls, we may as well just anoint this upstart local act a Shady Lady house band – but since they’ll be emitting jams from the patio at Sophia’s, the streets of Davis will get its education in how back-alley blues bands used to do it. $5. www.sophiasthaikitchen.com.

Looking Ahead: “Campfire Caravan” with the Brothers Comatose. Oct. 3 at Harlow’s

The Lil’ Smokies and Mipso are joining red-hot bluegrass wunderkinds the Brothers Comatose for a national “Campfire Caravan” tour – this one oughta be a barn-burner. $18 adv/ $23 door. www.harlows.com.
