Fri., April 9 -- Athens' Dead Confederate makes the trek to Atlanta to play most, if not all, of the songs from its as-yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album, which the band just finished mastering last week. This will be the first time these songs have been played inside the Perimeter. In contrast to DC's epic and brooding releases of post-grunge riffs and miasma, Augusta's fun punk foursome Turf War opens the show. $10. 9 p.m. 529, 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769.
Fri., April 9 -- Appleseed Cast, Dreamend, Swank Motel. Lawrence, KS' late '90s emo quartet Appleseed Cast play the albums Low Level Owl 1 and 2 back-to-back, each in its entirety. Both albums are considered classics in their catalogue, and were recently reissued on silver vinyl via Graveface. The label's owner, Ryan Graveface (also of Black Moth Super Rainbow) plays a set with his band Dreamend. Swank Hotel opens. $10. 7 p.m. Masquerade. 695 North Ave. 404-577-8178.
Sat., April 10 -- Ween. Hot on the heels of a series of vinyl reissues of such classic Ween titles as The Mollusk, The Pod, 12 Golden Country Greats and White Pepper, the boys from New Hope, Penn. are back. When Dean and Gene roll through the Tabernacle on Sat., April 10, they'll be playing pretty much everything you want to hear with a good cross-section of goofy, noisy older jams to the more densely layered songwriting of their recent years. Since forming in the early '90s their Beatles-like transcendence has come to fruition with La Cucaracha, an album that's sometimes fun, and sometimes disturbing, but always engaging. And as per usual, they'll be showing off a few newer numbers as well. $32.50. 8 p.m. Tabernacle. 152 Luckie St. www.livenation.com.
Sat, April 10 -- The Selmanaires, Carnivores, Mermaids, Roman Photos DJ Sets. $7. 8:30p. Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge. 644 N. Highland Ave. 404-874-5756.
Sat., April 10 -- JasonAjemian & High Life Workshop Bassist/vocalist Jason Ajemian has spent a lifetime exploring internal and external musical forces, while sculpting massive, experimental works of jazz architecture. For this show Ajemian and several players blend a live performance with a workshop addressing the deeper meanings of musical tradition, genre and incorporating new media to keep the music and an intelligent discourse moving forward. $7 (show). $12 (show & workshop) 6 p.m. Eyedrum, 290 MLK Jr. Drive SE. 404-522-0655.
