Jon Mueller joins with other notable local acts for Death Blues. And more this week in live music.

Jon Mueller Death Blues

Monday, Nov. 12: Catacombz with Maserati and Mujeure at Stonefly Brewing Company, 9 p.m.
Riverwest rock outfit Catacombz is among the most criminally underrated bands in town. The ever-changing act most recently bent Milwaukee’s collective ear with its evolved effort captured to cassette in Mother Tongue 2. Be a firsthand witness to Catacombz’s one-of-a-kind tunes as the band heads a bill also featuring Athens, Ga., outfit Maserati and Pittsburgh’s Mujeure. (735 E. Center St., stoneflybrewery.com)

Tuesday, Nov. 13: Deicide with Putrid Pile and Shroud Of Despondency at The Rave, 8 p.m. ($17.50)
Evidently, Deicide is a Tampa-based death metal band that formed in the late ’80s. That sounds about right. (2401 W. Wisconsin Ave., TheRave.com)

Wednesday, Nov. 14: Travis Tritt at Northern Lights Theater, 8 p.m. ($15-$25)
While he’s since been overshadowed by many of his country contemporaries during this ongoing resurgence of the genre’s popularity, Travis Tritt’s resume is nothing to scoff at. The Grammy winner has been going strong since coming on the scene with his 1990 album, Country Club, and has managed 10 more studio albums since, along with a flurry of film and television appearances – all with the same hairstyle. This may be one of your only chances to see a Yes, Dear guest star until 2013! (1721 W. Canal St., PaysBig.com)

Also: Owl, Lord Brain, and Soup Moat at Quarter’s Rock ‘N Roll Palace, 9 p.m. – (900 E. Center St.)

And: RNDM and Gull at Turner Hall, 7 p.m. ($18) – (1032 N. 4th St., PabstTheater.org)

Thursday, Nov. 15: Dethklok with Machine Head, All That Remains, and The Black Dahlia Murder at The Rave, 6:30 p.m. ($30)
When it comes to metal bands inspired by a contemporary cartoon in which they are the protagonist, Dethklok is one of the best. Fresh off the release of its latest release, Dethalbum III, the band whose music is portrayed in the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse comes to town as part of its national tour along with three unanimated modern metal mainstays. (2401 W. Wisconsin Ave., TheRave.com)

Also: Paul Thorn and Peter Mulvey at Turner Hall, 6:30 p.m. ($20) – (1032 N. 4th St., PabstTheater.org)

And: Menahan Street Band, De La Buena at Mad Planet, 9 p.m. ($12) – (533 E. Center St, Mad-Planet.net)

Friday, Nov. 16: Journey with Pat Benatar, and Loverboy at BMO Harris Bradley Center, 7 p.m. ($22-$122)
Between them, Journey and Pat Benatar have amassed a combined five certified gold records, 15 platinum albums, 37 Top 40 singles and a jukebox worth of singalongable, time-tested songs that have made the world sing since the ’70s. And that’s not even factoring in Loverboy, who are responsible for arguably popular song “Working For The Weekend” – which is… something too. Even though Steve Perry looks a touch younger and more Asian than he used to and Ms. Benatar can’t quite hit all the high notes in her various ’80s anthems like she once could, this show still poses an opportunity to see some of your favorite acts from yesteryear performing the songs that (whether you admit it or not) you still love today. (1001 N. 4th St., BradleyCenter.com)

Also: Disguised As Birds, Zebras, and Hot Coffin at Cactus Club, 10 p.m. – Words. (2496 S. Wentworth Ave., CactusClubMilwaukee.com)

And: Jon Mueller Death Blues at Pitman Theater, 8 p.m. ($20) – (3431 S. 39th St.)

Saturday, Nov. 17: Jon Mueller Death Blues at Pitman Theater, 8 p.m., ($20)
The pet project of the drummer of such noted Milwaukee bands as Collections Of Colonies Of Bees and Volcano Choir, Jon Mueller’s latest artistic venture, Death Blues (No Time Like The Present), manages to bring many of the city’s other noted musicians into the fold. Contributing to Mueller’s vision are members of Altos, Juniper Tar and Field Report. If you love unique local music at overlooked venues, this (or Friday’s performance) isn’t to be missed. (3431 S. 39th St.)

Also: Old Crow Medicine Show with Clark Mead at Riverside Theater, 7 p.m. ($26) – (116 W. Wisconsin Ave., PabstTheater.org)

And: Moon Curse, Mt. Salem, and Sons Of The West at Riverwest Public House, 9 p.m. ($5) – (815 E. Locust St., RiverwestPublicHouse.WordPress.com)

Sunday, Nov. 18: Appleseeds, Sycamore Smith And The Gray Beast, and Couchfort at Frank’s Power Plant, 10 p.m. ($5) – (2800 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., FranksPowerPlant.Angelfire.com)
