La Luz, BOYTOY, Eureka California, Wanda

Four-piece Seattle outfit La Luz has bounced back and then some from a 2013 car crash that left the group’s members seriously injured and their equipment totally destroyed. With Weirdo Shrine, the band’s brand new, Ty Segall-produced LP out now on Hardly Art, La Luz harnesses the frenetic energy of earlier recordings and puts it to pleasure-pop use. The record’s 11 surf-inflected tracks feel at once dreamy and immediate, the sound of hazy, Southern California sunlight. Brooklyn-via-Australia pop-rockers BOYTOY open, as do locals Eureka California—back from their UK tour jaunt and recording session—and Wanda.

9 p.m. $7 (21+), $9 (18–20).
