BOB MOULD “Patch the Sky,” released in March, finds this punk-rock veteran swinging for the fences with his customary mix of buzzy guitars, bubblegum melodies, and ferocious drive. Ted Leo, another indie-rock perennial, raises the curtain. May 1,  7 p.m. $25. Paradise Rock Club. 800-745-3000, http://www.ticketmaster.com

PARKER MILLSAP When a relative newcomer elicits comparisons to Elvis Presley, Robert Plant, and Steve Earle, you perk up. Listening to his new LP, “The Very Last Day,” you realize those comparisons sell short the distinctiveness of this Oklahoma troubadour’s quavery voice, and the empathy in his richly wrought tales. May 3, 9 p.m. $15. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, http://www.ticketmaster.com

SANTIGOLD You might not know this Philadelphia electro-pop singer, songwriter, and producer by name, but you’ve heard her instantly catchy tunes on TV shows and in ad campaigns. Her newest album, “99¢,” packs empowering sentiments in bouncy, lilting, irresistible day-glo candy-pop shells. May 3, 7 p.m. $25-$35. House of Blues. 800-653-8000, http://www.livenation.com

MR. LIF Storming back from a lengthy, unplanned hiatus, Boston M.C. and Def Jux survivor Mr. Lif celebrates the release of “Don’t Look Down,” his first solo album in seven years and a compelling testament to his artistic resilience. May 5, 10:30 p.m. $15, advance $13. Middle East Upstairs, Cambridge. 617-864-3278, http://www.mideastclub.com
