Monday, October 8: Blessed Feathers with Way Yes @ Stonefly Brewing Company, 9 p.m. ($8)

Milwaukee folk duo Blessed Feathers seem poised to take a quantum leap in late 2012. Not only is the band releasing its new EP Peaceful Beasts in an Ocean of Weeds (produced by Kevin McMahon, who has also produced The Walkmen, among others) tomorrow, but their recent partnership with manager Dan Backhaus (Just Managing) has already led to an opportunity at the CMJ Music Marathon later this month. Listen to a track from the band's new effort here.

Tuesday, October 9: The Intelligence with Drugs Dragons and Outer Minds @ Cactus Club, 9 p.m.

Seattle has always served as a breeding ground for creative bands that have gone on to make their mark nationally. Post-punk rockers The Intelligence can certainly place themselves in that company. The band has been successfully taking its psych-surf show on the road since 1999. Milwaukee's Drugs Dragons and Chicago's Outer Minds open.

Wednesday, October 10: The Ragadors with Hewn @ Hotel Foster, 9 p.m. ($5)

Ballsy, dirty and loud as hell, The Ragadors have set a tone as a solid blues band on the local circuit. But its when the band strays off into songwriting variations that conjure up images of the White Stripes or Queens of the Stone Age that The Ragadors really show off what they are capable of.

(144 E. Wells St., PabstTheater.org)

Thursday, October 11: Dr. Dog with Cotton Jones @ Turner Hall, 7:30 p.m. ($22.50)

It can certainly be difficult to categorize the sound of Pennsylvania-based Dr. Dog. Combine the kitschy pop stylings of the The Flaming Lips with the melodic sensibilities of The Beatles and the folk ensemble energy of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Put it all together and what you get is not easily describable, but endlessly enjoyable.

Also: The Delta Routine with Hero Jr., and We Are Your Father @ Hotel Foster, 9 p.m.

(2028 E. North Ave., TheHotelFoster.com)

Friday, October 12: Paula Cole with Grace Weber @ Turner Hall, 7 p.m. ($25)

Unlike the majority of the actors and actresses from the hit TV show, there has been life after Dawson's Creek for pop songstress Paula Cole. Best known for her big singles "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Wanna Wait," the incessant theme song from the aforementioned series, Cole has enjoyed a steady and critically-acclaimed slew of releases through the years. Sultry-voiced Milwaukee native Grace Weber opens.

(1032 N. 4th St., PabstTheater.org)

Also: A$AP Rocky with A$AP Mob, Schoolboy Q and Danny Brown @ The Rave, 8 p.m. ($23.50/$28.50)

(2401 W. Wisconsin Ave., TheRave.com)

Saturday, October 13: Juniper Tar with Nonagon, Frontier Ruckus and Water Liars @ Club Garibaldi, 9 p.m.

If you haven't yet listened to the dark folk masterpiece Since Before by Juniper Tar, please do yourself a favor and click here. Then go watch the band perform the hell out of the songs live. That is all.

(2501 S. Superior St., ClubGaribaldis.com)

Also: Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound with Panalure @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m. ($10)

(1434 N. Farwell Ave., ShankHall.com)

Sunday, October 14: Adam Ant with Brothers Of Brazil @ Turner Hall, 7 p.m. ($27.50)

New wave innovator Adam Ant first made is mark fronting the quintessential '80s band Adam and the Ants before striking out on his own. Ant actively hit the touring and recording circuits again in 2010. This show was originally slated for this past February, so here's your friendly reminder if you forgot that you bought tickets way back when.
