Fri. June 4 -- Glenn Danzig appears on Fox News' "Red Eye With Greg Gutfeld," which airs at midnight tonight. Now you have a reason, other than comic relief, to watch Fox News.
Sat. June 5 -- La Habra's The Funeral Pyre have a new album of murky rattle; Exhausted Prayer provide more labyrinthine amazement than just about any other local metal band. Plus four more. At The Blvd., 2631 Whittier Blvd., LA 90023; doors 7pm; $9.50; www.8thdaytix.com.
Sun. June 6 -- These monthly Sunday Evening Concerts are always tiptop, but this one deserves special notice. The guitar-sax-guitar improv unit Feedback Wave Riders augments its core of Michael Jon Fink, Ulrich Krieger and Antony DiGennaro with Chas Smith (who builds his own elaborate metallophones and freaks out on pedal steel) and Vinny Golia (this whole scene's woodwind sine quo non). Whoa. Not only that, but you get the infinitely attuned drone & loop duo of Devin Sarno & G.E. Stinson, who've been reading each other's minds for decades. At Center for the Arts, 2225 Colorado Blvd., Eagle Rock 90041; 7pm; $10; (626) 795-4989.
