Queens of the Stone Age

Tue., Oct. 17, 7:30 p.m.

Defined most commonly by their sinister slickness, Queens of the Stone Age are flipping the script on their gritty, manic hardness on their latest release Villains. A little Bowie and a dash of Motörhead, Queens of the Stone Age toy with a new brand of rock dystopia on Villains that rattles with dirty glam undertones courtesy of producer Mark Ronson (the man behind the boards of “Uptown Funk” and Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black). With seven records under their belt, expect a head-banging live rock retrospective that will leave you haunted long after the lights come up.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-6611; 313presents.com; Tickets start at $65. $65

Aminé

Tue., Oct. 17, 8 p.m.

It doesn’t get much fresher than 23-year old alt-rapper Aminé, whose quick tongue, clever rhymes, and wry sense of humor peg him as one to watch. Having released the single “Caroline” (which has gone triple platinum, NBD) a year ahead of his debut record Good for You (which dropped over the summer), Aminé’s youthful bravado is unmatched. With a penchant for diversely entertaining lyrics that corner pop culture references (from Tom Cruise’s Oprah couch moment to Miley Cyrus’ weed-smoking days to David Copperfield, Razr phones, and “Fruity Loops and Stanley Kubrick” ) Aminé’s rolodex of smile-inducing magic is as good as it gets.

Doors open at 8 p.m.; 4114 Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-436-1793; elclubdetroit.com; Tickets start at $20. $20

University Music Society Presents: Amir ElSaffar’s Rivers of Sound Orchestra

Wed., Oct. 18, 7:30 p.m.

ElSaffar’s Rivers of Sound Orchestra showcases 17 musicians from a broad spectrum of traditions, including Western classical instruments alongside oud, jowza, mridangam, buzuq, and dumbek; together, the group creates an entirely new musical language that transcends established notions of style and convention.

The highest ideal in maqam music is to reach a state of tarab, or musical ecstasy, which results from the melting away of borders as performers and audiences revel together in the music. As pitches and rhythms become fluid, so do cultural boundaries, and this transcultural approach combines improvisation and composition in a novel soundscape. Amir ElSaffar is an expert practitioner of both jazz and Iraqi maqam and shows off his large-scale ensemble to Ann Arbor for this special presentation; ElSaffar and select members of the group also provide the live music and original score for Ragamala Dance Company two nights later.

The Band of Heathens

Wed., Oct. 18, 8 p.m.

Songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard, a skilled Texas talent-spotter, produced the debut studio album of this Austin band, and Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal wrote that The Band of Heathens played the best set he heard in five nights at the SXSW festival in Austin. We believe it—their set at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival a few years back was a sensation! The Band of Heathens is one of the great live acts on the Americana circuit right now, and their studio recordings, fine as they are, don't do them justice. They mix a good greasy Texas sound with lyrics that stick with you and a handful of jams to get things really cooking. Their latest, "Duende," features songs on such topics as marijuana, poet Sylvia Plath, how beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and Coca-Cola have shaped civilization ("A History of the World in Six Glasses"). This is a band of true Texas originals, at the height of their powers. Special guest is Chicago Farmer, of whom Todd Snider has this to say: "I love Chicago Farmer’s singing and playing and songs, but it’s the intention behind the whole of his work that moves me to consider him the genuine heir to Arlo Guthrie or Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. He knows the shell game that goes on under folk music … which is sacred to me. Chicago Farmer is my brother; if you like me, you’ll love him." $20
