Why: Last Wednesdays at The Know! Green Noise Records Night showcases the latest and greatest in punk and garage rock. This month Cigarette Bums (LA) will be playing lo-fi psych punk-pop tunes off their recent release, Holy Smokes!.

2. Bass Drum of Death, DZ Deathrays, & Ghost Animal
Where: Mississippi Studios

When: Saturday, June 30th – 9pm
Why: The last time this Oxford, Miss. duo was in town they played a killer show with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Toro Y Moi (you’re already kicking yourself in the ass, right?), and after a couple tours of Europe and Australian they’re back with their chaotically tight brand of blown-out garage rock. Tourmates, DZ Deathrays punk rock will have you thrashing all over. Get there early for fuzzy and surfy dream-pop jams from Ghost Animal.
