Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

In the late 1980s, a San Francisco-based psychedelic rock band by the name of The Brian Jonestown Massacre was being hailed as the leader of a new era of rock ’n’ roll. But, as is a common tale in rock ’n’ roll, the band all but imploded at the hands of drugs and an unpredictable, seemingly megalomaniacal front man, Anton Newcombe.

The more reserved guitarist/vocalist, Peter Hayes, spent one year with The Brian Jonestown Massacre during the late ’90s before going on to form his own groundbreaking group with former high school classmate and bassist/vocalist Robert Levon Been in 1998.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club shot directly into the mainstream following its haunting 2001 self-titled debut, an album that featured the single “Whatever Happened to My Rock and Roll (Punk Song)” and branded the trio as the forerunner of the garage-rock resurrection.

The group has since released six studio albums, all to favorable reviews from major publications, including this year’s “Specter at the Feast.”

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will perform Sunday at the Music Farm, 32 Ann St., with Restavrant. Tickets are $20 in advance, $23 the day of the show, and are available at the door, the Music Farm box office or online at Ticketfly.com.

Doors open at 8 p.m. with the show starting at 9 p.m.

Trapt

Members of the Los Gatos, Calif.-born alternative metal band Trapt were still in high school when they landed an opening slot on Papa Roach’s 1998 tour.

Following strong sales of the band’s two self-released records at shows, Trapt earned a deal with Warner Bros. and released its self-titled, major-label debut in 2002. On the heels of the chart-topping single “Headstrong,” the album went on to sell nearly 2 million copies.

Afterward, the band embarked on international tours alongside Motley Crue, Buckcherry, Three Days Grace and others.

The quartet released its sixth studio effort, “Reborn,” in January to favorable reviews, an album that marks the group’s fifth to break into the Billboard Top 50.

Trapt will perform Tuesday at the Music Farm, 32 Ann St., with The Cringe. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 the day of the show, and are available at the door, the Music Farm box office or online at Ticketfly.com.

Doors open at 8 p.m. with the show starting at 9 p.m.

Michal Menert

After his family escaped the famously harsh Eastern Bloc during the Soviet Union’s reign, electronic music producer Michal Menert felt he had opportunities that must be taken advantage of.

His father’s computer talents led the family to Loveland, Colo., while Menert was still a young boy.

It was there that the budding producer’s tracks eventually caught the interest of fellow up-and-coming producer Derek Smith, aka Pretty Lights.

Menert co-produced Pretty Lights’ 2006 debut and went on to become the first artist signed to Smith’s now widely respected label Pretty Lights Music.

Menert is headlining the Space Jazz 2013 Fall Tour and will be performing Saturday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Highway, with Odesza.

Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 the day of the show, and are available online at StrangerTickets.com or at the door.

Doors open at 9 p.m.
