Alt-folk weirdo Milo Jones brings his skillful guitar play Wednesday to the Plough & Stars, but more importantly he brings his persona – song selections that border on the obscene, delivered in a fashion that makes it hard to look away.
For lovers of creative, genre-crossing music, Wednesday will be a good night – local art rock quintet Jaggery, Oakland, Calif.-based Faun Fables and Providence, R.I.-based Arc Iris are playing Oberon.
Women who rock (and the people who rock with those women) are having a big month, with the three-day Girls in the Garage festival coming and a 53-band compilation called Keep Safe Boston 2015 available for download now.

The Middle East’s Corner doesn’t always get bands who share stages with The Black Keys, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Gin Blossoms, Gov’t Mule and Robert Plant, but there’s a good reason Jocelyn Arndt is the exception: She’s a local.

A snow- and stir-crazy art-rock darling Amanda Palmer has announced two “tiny secret” shows in Somerville at chef J.J. Gonson’s Cuisine en Locale, a half-block from Palmer’s first Somerville apartment.
