5 Show Picks for the Week

Thursday: Wolf Parade at the Regent Theater

Last week, Wolf Parade returned with the new album “Thin Mind” (stream it here), their fifth album and first since 2017. Hard to believe it’s been 15 years since “Apologies to the Queen Mary,” but you can hear their evolution when they headline the Regent Theater, with Land of Talk opening. Tickets.

Thursday: Nik Freitas at the Bootleg Theater

Singer-songwriter (and steady sideman) Nik Freitas’ solo work has flown under the radar for far too long. This week he releases his ninth album, “Cavalo Morto” (check out “Aviso Amor” and “Flowers”) and celebrates with a show at the Bootleg Theater, where his Park the Van Records labelmate Dustin Lovelis and Charlie Wadhams open. Tickets.

Friday: Vanessa Zamora and Loyal Lobos at the Paramount

Two rising pop singers head up a showcase of Latin artists at the Paramount — Tijuana native Vanessa Zamora, who gained attention for her 2018 album “Tornaluna,” and Loyal Lobos (aka L.A.-based Colombian Andrea Silva), who turned heads with her Teddy Geiger-produced 2019 single “Criminals.” Tickets.

Friday: Bad Rabbits at the Echo

Massachusetts disco-funk fun bunch Bad Rabbits are on tour celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their EP “Stick Up Kids.” They bring the party to the Echo on Friday night. Tickets.

Saturday: Howard Jones at the El Rey Theatre

New wave icon and synth pioneer Howard Jones is doing something a little bit different on his current tour. The man responsible for hits such as “New Song,” “What Is Love?,” “Like to Get to Know You Well” and “Things Can Only Get Better” (and who released the new album “Transform” last year) will perform an intimate, stripped-down set of songs from throughout his catalog. He’ll also share the inspirations for the songs and stories from his touring career. Tickets.
