Blonde Redhead

June 20. New York outfit Blonde Redhead began in 1993 as a noisy quartet—females Kazu Mikino (vocals, guitar) and Maki Takahashi (bass) and twin Italian brothers Simone (drums, vocals) and Amadeo Pace (guitar)—that was in thrall to early Sonic Youth and '70s No Wavers like DNA (they're named for one of the latter's songs). After Takahashi's departure and some occasional guest bassists, the group, which here lands at Pearl Street, in Sonic Youth's post-New York stomping ground of Western Mass, formally pared down to the trio of Mikino and the Pace siblings. On their recent albums the band has pursued more of a shoegazey, psychedelic-pop direction, quieting down further still with last year's acoustic-sprinkled Barragan. 8:30pm. $20, $23. Northampton, Massachusetts. (413) 584-7771; Iheg.com.

    A more serious and committed Hudson Valley musical figure than Decora does not come to mind. Everything the 32-year-old does and says comes with a breathtaking level of locked-down, unwaveringly intense focus.
