COURTNEY BARNETT WITH VAGABON
North Adams, 8 p.m.
  Courtney Barnett broke into the music scene with an uppercut punch — her sardonic lyrics and deadpan delivery propelled her from slinging drinks at a Melbourne bar to become an indie-rock darling and global sensation at just twenty-four years old. She infuses her plainspoken lyrics with a wit and wisdom beyond her years, and in concert matches it with a driving guitar that instantly brings every audience to its feet. After her 2015 debut album and lauded single Avant Gardener stirred up critical and cult success — Rolling Stone called it the year’s “sharpest debut” — Barnett teamed up with War on Drugs’ Kurt Vile for Lotta Sea Lice, a clever and carefree collaborative album that nearly every authoritative music mag gushed over. Tell Me How You Really Feel, her sophomore solo effort to be released in May, was named one of both Rolling Stone and Pitchfork’s most anticipated albums of 2018. Barnett will spend the summer headlining festival after festival — she’s already been building buzz for her first trip to Newport Folk. We’re thrilled to have her in North Adams for a concert with her whole band. This one is planned for MASS MoCA’s concert courtyard stage — tickets are limited and are expected to sell quickly. Cameroon-born multi-instrumentalist Vagabon opens the show in a bill that takes our breath away. Join us under the stars for this one, on July 12 at 8pm.

CONCERT | DAVID KRAKAUER'S KLEZMER MADNESS REUNION CONCERT WITH SPECIAL GUEST SOCALLED
Amherst, 8 p.m.
The Joan A. Backman Memorial Concert This reunion concert of David Krakauer's original post-Klezmatics outfit, Klezmer Madness, features Krakauer's groundbreaking fusion of the early klezmer sounds of immigrant-era clarinetist Naftule Brandwein, the jazz influence of New Orleans clarinet great Sidney Bechet, and the funky undertones of James Brown. Klezmer Madness showcases Krakauer's soulful, boisterous, clarinet on classic instrumental klezmer tunes and original compositions that merge the synagogue wail with the avant-garde jazz of 1950s and 60s New York, all driven by an incessant, rhythmic pulse that explores the affinities between klezmer dance and modern soul music. Joining the group as a featured artist on this special occasion will be Socalled - Krakauer's co-leader of the klezmer-funk supergroup Abraham Inc. - who will add digital beats and samples to the eclectic mix of Krakauer's postmodern klezmer stew.
