Quilt, by Daniel Dorsa

The week ahead: Pop & rock
Thursday, June 23, 2016

DEERHOOF Hot on the heels of “Balter/Saunier,” an arrestingly gorgeous collaboration with Chicago new-music ensemble Dal Niente, this inimitable quartet comes to town heralding “The Magic,” its newest collection of tunefully itchy art-pop gems, which arrives the same day. June 24, 8 p.m. $16. Brighton Music Hall. 617-653-8000,

QUILT + WIDOWSPEAK Wistful, dreamy songs from wandering minstrels is tonight’s theme, brought to you by Quilt, a Boston band that scattered to assorted points in New York, and Widowspeak, a Brooklyn duo that relocated to Tacoma. Show up in time to see opener Doug Tuttle, whose sweetly harmonized psych-rock style prompts bliss. June 24, 8 p.m. $15. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200,

FLAG Whatever one makes of the turmoil continually afflicting the iconic hardcore-punk band Black Flag, there’s no denying the abrasive catharsis songs like “Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie,” “TV Party,” and “My War” provide — and no better way to hear them played right than by ex-members Keith Morris, Dez Cadena, Chuck Dukowski, and Bill Stevenson, joined by Descendents guitarist Stephen Egerton. June 26, 7 p.m. $28, advance $25. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200,
