There's alot going on this Fri., June 10 as far as concerts go. Take a look at the breakdown of highlights below, then peep what's coming up this weekend.

Infected Mushroom Ever renown for eye-popping backdrops of lights and visuals paired and brain-fuzzed psytrance of matching vibrancy, Infected Mushroom plies out-there electronic music that you can get down to, but lacks any straightforward rhythmic structures or textures. Songs like “Yamakas in Space” feature sci-fi trippy sonicsapes filled with vast swaths of synth melody and unexpected tempo changes that segue into dub-reggae terrains, while “She Zorement” has a rather playful, buoyant feel with vocals and verses spliced, mashed, shaken, twisted and pitch-shifted into startling sonic shapes, and verses delivered in tones that range from deep burps to skipping electro-scats to a velvety-soulful croon that shifts in accent and frequency to arrive at rubbery robot timbres. Both tracks come off last year’s Converting Vegetarians II, a thoroughly weird and compelling 10th outing from the Israli production duo. (The Ritz Ybor, Ybor City)–Leilani Polk

Journey with Doobie Brothers, Dave Mason It’s likely you know one (and maybe too many) songs by Journey, because even though the mega San Francisco prog rock band had no No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, they had enough almosts for AC and classic rock radio to make them retrograde stars. Now you can hear material that spans “Wheel in the Sky,” “Lights,” “Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin’” “Any Way You Want It,” “Don't Stop Believin',” “Open Arms,” “Faithfully,” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” “I'll Be Alright Without You” and the brief ‘90s era comeback that was “When You Love a Woman.” The Doobie Brothers bring breezier rollicking sounds in “Listen to the Music,” “Jesus Is Just Alright” and swamp roots classic “Black Water,” among others. (MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, Tampa)–LP

The Lee Boys feat. Roosevelt Collier A two-night run of howling, funkified sacred steel grooves starts with a straightforward concert on Friday, then finds The Lee Boys headlining Dunedin Brewery’s IPA Festival on Saturday. Both shows find the band joined by Roosevelt Collier, who's been out for a bit due to health reasons -- and these might be the last chance locals get to see him in action. RIYL: Robert Randolph & the Family Band. (Dunedin Brewery, Dunedin)–LP

Sink Tapes w/Gov Club/DieAlps!/Poultry With a raw sound and chill vibe that hearkens back to classic rock bands of the ‘70s, Sink Tapes seem like they could be a relic from the past, except they are totally not, they actually exist in the present – yes, even on social media. Jacksonville’s super funk fiends Gov Club deliver a perfect combination of groovy bass and strong lo-fi rhythms. Tampa baroque pop outfit Die Alps! play spry waltzes with surprisingly robust drive. Poultry rounds out an already amazing lineup. Dig in, folks. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) –Brian Roesler

Noel's Birthday Bash feat. UNRB w/Shaun Hopper Noel Rochford is the electric uke-swinging leader of UNRB, who has a rather robust and booming vocal quality for a person with such boyishly elfin features. He turns a quarter of a century old on this night and maestros his brassy brash and rambunctious ska fusion band through a show sure to be jam-packed with more spirited energy than usual and added antics. Shaun Hopper brings finely-wrought finger-style acoustic guitar compositions to the evening’s festivities. (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa)–LP

Keith "Splattergod" Suchland's 50th Birthday Drunkathon Suchland is a vet extreme music vocalist/lyricist who plays in weird/noisecore outfit Eviscerated Zombie Tampon and newly-minted sludgy stoner groove-doom metal makers Tortured Anguish, which he debuts at his Drunkathon. Also performing are two Ohio bands, punk rocker The Voice of God and battle metal band Shadow of the Mountain, and Bay area-based Abortion Twins, Yateveo, The Prople and The Stone Cobras, pushing cheeky punk, garage, horror-punk and punkabilly, respectively. (Brass Mug, Tampa)–LP

The Wrenchers/Twisty Chris and the Puddin' Packs/Midnight Bowlers League It’s a triple header of revivalist sounds: The Wrenchers and Twisty Chris and the Puddin’ Packs share surf-garage domains, but where Wrenchers lean to an all-instrumental straightforward vintage, Twisty Chris brings on the heavy punk-doo wop vibes. Adding ever more value to the send-off, a reunion of epic rockabilly proportions by one-time staple, Midnight Bowlers League. The Amsterdam, St. Petersburg)–LP
