This Friday in live music: Fiend Without a Face, Guttermouth, Keith Urban + more

There are some concert happening this Fri., June 17. Check out the breakdown of highlights below, then peep what's coming up this weekend.

Guttermouth with Dutch Nuggets, Class of 86, Mosquito Teeth, 210 The last time I saw Guttermouth, I was pepper sprayed. By the band. It was entirely unintentional, of course, but it was 2004, during the Rock the Vote era, and lead singer Mark Adkins was sporting a pro-conservative tee-shirt and suggested we all vote Republican and the crowd didn't like it too much. The climactic results weren’t directed at me but I got sprayed by proxy when a gust of wind blew it in my eyes. I still love you, Guttermouth. Never change, you awesomely contrarian punkers. The aggressive, ultra-melodic sounds of Dutch Nuggets prove that Canadians aren’t too kind to be punk and do their country proud. Class of 86 hails from Minneapolis, which is kind of like America's little Canada, or so I've been told; they push totally spine-busting punk. Cheeky local alt punk faves Mosquito Teeth brings raucous rhymes and pay particularly memorable tribute to their parent city in "St. Pete." And 210 is a dream team of obscure punk vets. (Local 662, St. Petersburg) –Brian Roesler

Hucci with Ozzie Not yet 21 years old, UK producers (and apparently brothers) Hucci & Ozzie have individually and as a team made names for themselves in the trap music scene; the former is heavier on the hip hop with abstract R&B underpinnings and vocal splices, while the latter calls on grimier crunked-out bass jams with high-hat skitters and pitch-shifted vocal samples. Both are inclined to minimalism. Also performing on this night: Christian Alexander, Winta and $MGGLR. (The Ritz Ybor, Ybor City) –Leilani Polk

Classic Albums Live: The Beatles, Revolver When the Beatles were on the cusp of becoming totally psychedelic (and dropping LSD amid writing material for Revolver), they started experimenting with tape loops and backwards recordings, incorporating world textures and classical music in unique ways, and generally experiencing a creative transition of pretty epic proportions. For this latest Classic Albums installment, that seminal 1965 album gets paid its due, which means a full band reverentially re-create it in its entirety, live, from “Taxman” to “Tomorrow Never Knows.” (Capitol Theatre, Clearwater) –LP

Fiend Without A Face with The Birth Defects, Casper, Mushmind, Sonic Graffiti, Ninehorn Fiend Without A Face have one of the most badass self-styled genres: “Rockabilly-Porno Metal.” The reality is closer akin to the serene and expansive tonal qualities of surf rock with some snappy percussion. LA Punkers The Birth Defects are not, in fact, defective at all, but actually kick serious ass. So-called "emo rapper" Casper hails from Germany and knows his way around a production studio, Tampa's Mushmind displays an affinity for lo-fi acid punk that is just dirty, St. Petersburg-spawned Sonic Graffiti play a torrential assault of funk-injected blues-garage noise with a frothing-at-the-mouth passion. Groovy as hell. And another Tampa band, Ninehorn, plies distorted, retro-hued, psychedelic stoner metal that I swear, gave me a contact high. All good shit. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) –BR

Keith Urban with Brett Eldredge, Maren Morris Amid the very few country artists to come from Down Under, Keith Urban (who was actually born and raised in New Zealand but made his name in Australia) stands as the most successful, breaking through to U.S. audiences with his 1999 self-titled LP and going platinum with momentum from No. 1 charter "But for the Grace of God." He’s since made short work of the Billboard Country charts, taking the top and second spots with all the albums that followed, and charting more than a dozen No. 1 singles, too. Nicole Kidman’s sexy hubbie lands in town hyping Ripcord, his just-released pop-oriented ninth LP, which features unexpected guests in Nile Rodgers and Pitbull on the groove snapping track, “Sun Don’t Let Me Down.” (MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, Tampa)–LP
