Broods

Sat., May 27, 8 p.m.

Auckland, New Zealand’s best electronic pop brother and sister act, Broods, is definitely an up-and-comer. Singer Georgia Nott and her multi-instrumentalist older brother Caleb Nott are no strangers to playing music together, and have since childhood. Their adolescent band, the Peasants, won a few national contests that helped them gain recognition, and put them in touch with producer Joe Little, who helped Lorde skyrocket to fame. After the Peasants broke up, Little helped Broods create “Bridges,” which reached the Top 10 in New Zealand, and paved the way for the duo to sign to various major labels across territories. $25

Trip Metal Fest

Sat., May 27, 6 p.m. and Sun., May 28, 6 p.m.

It was hands-down our single favorite musical event of last year, and the Wolf Eyes-curated Trip Metal Fest returns to El Club for this Memorial Day weekend with a stellar lineup. Self-described as a celebration of “twisted and beguiling avant-garde music and performance, running congruent with Movement,” this year the fest is a super-smart mixture of local and international talent. Pharmakon, Body/Head, Container, Aaron Dilloway — wow, this is seriously so good. We’ve been waiting to see Body/Head (the duo of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and percussionist Bill Nace) for years, and Pharmakon is so crazily adored right now, and for great reason. The local bookings are just as crucial. After all, it’s members of Princess Dragonmom who helped to start Noise Camp and thus to usher in the golden age of Michigan noise music some 40 years ago, so kudos for including them. $20-$200
