Flying Lotus

Sat., Aug. 24, 8 p.m.
Royal Oak Music Theatre 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak Downtown Royal Oak

Buy from Ticketmaster$29.50+

For his sixth studio record, producer and grand-nephew of John and Alice Coltrane, Stephen Ellison, who performs as Flying Lotus, stepped away from his laptop, learned piano, and teamed up with a diverse roster of talented friends to examine clarity. His first record since 2014’s You’re Dead!, Flamagra finds FlyLo, collaborating with Thundercat, Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, David Lynch, Tierra Whack, and Solange for a cosmic, dexterous, and, at times, macabre meditation on theatrics and connectivity. As much as FlyLo’s music paints vivid and swirling mental pictures, his 3D live show takes the immersive sonic experience to transcendent heights. FlyLo shares the bill with Brandon Coleman Spacetalker, Salami Rose Joe Louis, and PBDY. 248-399-2980

Kate Hinote, Duende, Las Drogas

Sat., Aug. 24, 7 p.m.
Lo-fi 220 S. Main St., Ann Arbor Downtown Ann Arbor

One of these things is not like the other. Well, actually, none of these bands are remotely similar, which makes this Ann Arbor triple bill a sonic flight for folks of all fancies. Take Detroit’s Duende, a band that, for a decade, has been assembling a carefully crafted arsenal of throbbing psychedelic garage rock. Also on the bill is three-piece Las Drogas out of Ypsilanti, which specializes in stirring and sludgy psychobilly. Rounding out the evening is singer-songwriter Kate Hinote, whose soaring, mood-setting voice has led several iterations of several high-energy alt-folk line-ups (the Blueflowers and, sometimes, with the Disasters) over the last 10 years.
