Wednesday’s Los Angeles concerts:

JD McPherson visits the Teragram Ballroom behind his big 2015 album “Let the Good Times Roll.” (Rolling Stone anointed the title track the song of the year.)
► Nashville-based, O.C.-bred singer-songwriter Jake McMullen plays the Echo on a night that also features Sam Morrow, Kat Myers & the Buzzards and Korey Dane.
► Chicago’s the Kickback headlines the Satellite, with Quiet Company and Crown Plaza supporting.
► A too-good-to-be-free-but-it-is night brings Gospelbeach, Drug Cabin and White Drug to the Lost Knight.
► And dreamy electro-pop is the order of the night at the Bootleg Theater, where Cannons are joined by Night Things (ex-Badlands). Hawai kicks off the evening.
