FRIDAY 6/11

Pizza D'Action houses a birthday riot for local musician and world-class badass—not to mention Little Rock's Bill Brasky— Matt Floyd (above). He'll play a set with Jonathan Wilkins & the Reparations, DJ Michael Inscoe spins. Buy the birthday man a drink. I once saw Matt Floyd drink a fire extinguisher full of Mellow Bourbon and chase it with a bowl of wolf teeth, so you'd better buy him three. 9:30 p.m.

After a night of storms and tornadoes in March flooded Juanita's and canceled its much anticipated show, local soul-rock gods Velvet Kente and self-proclaimed dictionary rapper 607 switch venues to play what's sure to be a packed house at White Water Tavern, 10 p.m.

After a great show at Vino's in March, one of the best bands from New Jersey, Screaming Females, take to the ACAC alongside enduring locals The Thing That Always Explodes, Fayetteville-based harmonic power popsters The Rox and anti-folk Oklahoman Dave Dean's Musical Forklift, 9 p.m., $7.

Midtown Billiards books a welcome duo of twisted local acts for its weekly, late-night show: local stalwarts Hector Faceplant and the "Apocalypse Now"-quoting Outstanding Red Team, 12:30 a.m., $5 non-members.

The Peabody Rivertop Party soldiers on for another Friday night shindig, this time with music by hugely popular road warrior party band, The Venus Mission, 8 p.m., $5.


SATURDAY 6/12

Local promoter/producer Ras Levi celebrates his birthday at Revolution with a night of hip-hop and reggae from Butterfly, Dexter Peters, Nicky Parrish, DJs K-One and Boone and more, 8 p.m.

At Downtown Music Hall, local metal heroes Rwake play a rare show alongside Memphis hard blues-rockers The Dirty Streets, 8 p.m., $7.

Dreamland Ballroom's drive-in movie series continues with canonized zombie classic "Night of the Living Dead," 8 p.m., $5 per person or $20 per carload.

At Discovery, visiting DJ Steven Oliveri works the crowd in the disco while the man who needs no introduction, g-force, takes it to the lobby, 9 p.m., $10.
