Sunday 5/28: Jackson Pines at Asbury Lanes

Philly-via-Jersey folk outfit Jackson Pines have their latest album of original material coming out later this year — its single “Wheel” is a gritty rocker — but first, they’re celebrating the release of Pine Barrens Vol. 1, an EP of traditional music and regional roots and blues, which they describe a collection of “songs from where we grew up, dating from around 1700 – 2013 and in between.” See them on their home turf tonight at Asbury Lanes. // 8 p.m., $17, 18+

If you’re going to make your Monday off work a concert night, what better way to do it than with a big star in a small space, and we expect to hear Big Boi showcasing 2021’s eclectic Big Sleepover LP, digging back to the deeply funky 2010 album Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty, and maybe even dusting off some favorites from the OutKast catalog. // 8 p.m., $35 and up, 21+
