Phonogenics 101: Discussion of Bela Fleck’s Perpetual Motion Jeremy Gloff usually tackles older material in his album discussion series, but he’ll switch the gears for this 2001 release in which banjo savant Béla Fleck takes on works by Chopin, Bach and Italian composer Domenico Scarlatti. These things get started at 8 p.m. on the dot, so don’t be late. (Disco Dolls Studio, Tampa) INFO

Coffee run: Nashville singer-songwriter Molly Parden is fully caffeinated and fully herself

✔️ David Ramirez w/Molly Parden/Kristopher James Austin, Texas’ David Ramirez has quietly put out one of the strongest singer-songwriter records of 2017 (We’re Not Going Anywhere), so it’d be a shame if it were quiet when he and a full band bring the synthed-out, poignant, 10-track effort to Crowbar. Fast-rising Nashville songwriter Molly Parden is set to open with her own collection of modern country music that is a big reason why Nashville (despite its harboring of sketchy pop country) remains a stronghold of the best music in America. Read more about this show in our feature story here. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO

Acid Tongue w/The Mammoths/Sun Signs Nothing wrong with taking Wednesday to experience a little psych-rock in the record shop, and tonight you can do just that when bi-coastal Freakout and Lollipop Records signee Acid Tongue brings a band of Texas mind-melters, The Mammoths, to open the show alongside Tampa's own Sun Signs.
