This Saturday in live music: Melt Banana, Y Los Dos Pistoles Album Release Party, and more

Live music happening this Sat., May 30

A breakdown of shows happening this Sat., May 30.

Melt Banana with Meatwound Few bands achieve such consistent levels of noisily complex sonic bizarrity as Melt Banana, a Japanese experimental rock outfit powered by the irregular and unconventional guitar passages of Ichirou Agata – who overlap riffs, shreds and pedal effects – and the piercing vocal outbursts, and ferocious verse-firing of frontwoman Yasuko Onuki. For fans of Mike Patton and any of his sundry projects. (Orpheum, Ybor City)

Sundy Best Yes, the name of this Kentucky country-grassy duo is spelled thus on purpose – alluding to the drawling pronunciation of the finery they wore when they started jamming together in high school on Sundays, after church. Nick Jamerson (vocals, guitar) and Kris Bentley (cajon drum) are Sundy Best, a favorite rising act of Jake Owens on the road behind third full-length, Salvation City, which saw its premiere with a full-length story on (Hideaway Café & Recording Studio, St. Petersburg)

Y Los Dos Pistoles CD Release Party with Old Vices, Jeremy Gloff Y Los Dos Pistoles – the local folk-garage rock quartet led by the sweetly sultry vocal drive of guitar-slinger and occasional rack-rigged harmonica-blower Shae Krispinsky – stage a Saturday night release show celebrating their fresh Six Stories High EP (review here). Support from indie pop singer-songwriter Jeremy Gloff and Old Vices, a new project made up of music scene vets Jeff Brawer, Phil Stanwick (both from Dukes of Hillsborough) and Dan Padilla. (New World Brewery, Ybor City)

Tampa Bay Storm Pre-Game Concert: Rachele Lynae Before the Bay area’s own arena football league battles the New Orleans Voodoo at 7:30 p.m., WQYK-99.5FM presents a full hour set by emerging country pop-rock songstress Rachele Lynae – who has a sun-splashed sound, saccharine vocal quality and new single, “Whole Lotta Nothin’” on the radio – and her band. (Amelie Arena Plaza, downtown Tampa)

Veil Of Maya with Revocation, Entheos, Oceano, Gift Giver Veil of Maya – the Chicago deathcore outfit with djent tendencies – is currently on the road supporting fifth full-length, Matriarch; it’s the first to employ clean vocals by new singer Lukas Magyar, weaving a thread of melody through all the pound and crush, to a generally mixed response. (State Theatre, St. Petersburg)
