Ty Segall plays Neumos tomorrow, Dec. 11.

Monday, Dec. 10

Nouela The latest from singer/pianist Nouela Johnston is this summer's Chants, which shows off her proficient keyboard chops and powerful vocals in equal measure. With Social Studies, Detective Agency. Chop Suey. 8 p.m. $8.

Tuesday, Dec. 11

Ty Segall LIke his contemporaries in the Bay Area garage-rock scene, Segall's music is raw and frenetic, and his output is notoriously prolific--he's released three albums on three difference labels over the past year, and four in the past 18 months. Local psych-punks Night Beats open. With Sandrider. Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9442, neumos.com. 8 p.m. $12 adv.

Wednesday, Dec. 12

Kopecky Family Band Some band names are misleading, like that of this Nashville group, whose moniker suggests a troupe of siblings (or second-cousins) playing bluegrass. In reality, the six band members are just close friends, and their folk-pop sound is more car commercial than tractor haul. With Terrible Buttons, Ten-Speed Music. Tractor Tavern, 5231 Ballard Ave. N.W., 789-3599, tractortavern.com. 8 p.m. $8 adv./$10 DOS.

Thursday, Dec. 13

Lavender Diamond "Ethereal" is among the most overused words in music writing, but it suits Lavender Diamond singer Becky Stark's voice perfectly, her gossamer vocals complementing her band's sparse dream-pop arrangements. With Shelby Earl. Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave. N.W., 784-4880, sunsettavern.com. 8 p.m. $10.

Friday, Dec. 14

Good to Die Records Holiday Party Seattle's hardest-working metal and hard-rock label closes 2012 with good reason to celebrate: six of its eight bands released a record this year, including Gaytheist, this show's headliners. With Survival Knife, Mass Games, Glose. Comet Tavern, 922 E. Pike St., 322-9272, comettavern.com. 9 p.m. $8.

Saturday, Dec. 15

Riff Raff The apotheosis of gaudy, hyper-self-aware hashtag rap (or maybe just the male version of Kreayshawn), hip-hop artist Jody Christian has released two mixtapes and an album in 2012, signed a deal with Mad Decent, and amassed more than 400,000 Twitter followers. The Seattle Times described his last show at the Nectar as "lawless" and "buffoonish." With Kush Gang Global, "Aro" "The MC," Deadly D, Matt "Jarvis" ft Camila Recchio, Evan Christian, DJ Poindextar. Nectar Lounge. 5 p.m. (all ages), 8 p.m. (21+). $10 adv./$12 DOS.

Sunday, Dec. 16

Sunn O))) Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson's iconoclastic metal collective is probably best known for its live show, which involves robes, fog machines, and pulverizingly loud drone metal, though not necessarily in that order. With Dead in the Dirt, Loincloth. Neptune Theatre. 7 p.m. $20 adv./$22 DOS.
