Monday, Dec. 3

Sindios This local black-metal band headlines this edition of the 2 Bit Saloon's weekly "Metal Monday" showcase. With Beast of the Sky, Swine Grinder. 4818 17th Ave. N.W., 708-6917, the2bitsaloon.com. 9 p.m. $5.

Tuesday, Dec. 4

Jelly Bread Fronted by pedal steel player Dave Berry, this group plays funk music that clearly hearkens back to the genre's James Brown-led heyday. Fun fact: Per the Reverb Nation charts, they're currently Reno's #1 band in the "Other" genre. With Caffeine Trio. Nectar Lounge. 8 p.m. $5 adv./$7 DOS.

Wednesday, Dec. 5

Whitehorse This show features two acts that deliver similarly rootsy, forlorn takes on alt-country: the headliners, a husband and wife duo from Ontario, and local songwriter Star Anna. Tractor Tavern, 5231 Ballard Ave. N.W., 789-3599, tractortavern.com. 9 p.m. $10.

Thursday, Dec. 6

Charles Bradley and the Menahan Street Band Soul musician Charles Bradley's hardship-laden backstory reads like the synopsis of the latest biopic about a famous musician. The difference, however, is that Bradley never made it big, his career sidetracked by working-class struggles and ample bad luck. Now, at age 64, Bradley is performing regularly, and there's even a documentary, Soul of America, that shares his story. Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9442, neumos.com. 8 p.m. $18 adv.

Friday, Dec. 7

Allen Stone's yearlong, rapid ascent from also-ran soul singer to Paramount headliner--built on undeniable talent and heaping globs of sincerity--mimics the equally improbable and meteoric rise of fellow locals The Head and the Heart two years ago. Whether that's a compliment or an insult is up to you, but it's fair to say that if you're a fan of one, you're probably a fan of both. With Lemolo, Choklate. Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St., 467-5520, stgpresents.org. 7 p.m. $21.25. All ages.

Saturday, Dec. 8

Knowmads The two MCs and DJ that make up KnowMads are only 21 years old, but they've been active in the local hip-hop scene for seven years. Their feel-good, laid-back rhymes wouldn't sound out of place next to Grynch or Sol, the latter of which guests on May's The KnewBook. With RA Scion, Chev, Camila Recchio. Chop Suey, 1325 E. Madison St., 324-8005, chopsuey.com. 9 p.m. $12 adv. All ages.

Sunday, Dec. 9

Scrape Led by Seattle-based composer Steve Knapp, this 16-piece string and harp orchestra played a series of concerts with local jazz guitarist Bill Frisell earlier this year. Royal Room. 7:30 p.m. No cover.
