Live Tonight: The Cult, Indigo Girls, Week of Wonders

The Cult The most recent effort from the classic post-punk band is 2012’s confrontational Choice of Weapon. With White Hills. Showbox SoDo. 7 p.m. $35 adv./$40 DOS. ANDREW GOSPE

Indigo Girls are touring behind their 14th album, Beauty Queen Sister, which finds their folk-rock in a state of staid maturity, appropriate for what will be a largely middle-aged crowd at this ZooTunes show. Woodland Park Zoo. 5 p.m. $28. All ages. AG

Week of Wonders calls itself “tropical punk.” The name is more than appropriate—Leif Anders effects his guitar to sound like electrified, ’verbed-out steel drums that zip around to Caribbean-style bass lines and hyperactive Latin percussion. The “punk” comes into the picture through Week of Wonders’ energy. The band members, decked out in all-white, shimmy their islandy asses hard when they perform. Their shows will make you want to grab a hollowed-out coconut, fill it with sangría, and surf the biggest wave you can find—more than appropriate for the unusually warm summer we’ve been having. With Jeans Wilder, Detective Agency. Sunset Tavern. 8 p.m. $6. 21 and over. KELTON SEARS
