Indie pop outfit, Haim blends a range of musical stylings into a full-tilt rock ’n’ roll sound that at once fresh and filled with nostalgia. The trio features sisters Esta, Danielle, and Alana who got an early start as performers playing in a cover band fronted by their father. Fusing melodies reminiscent of ’70s rock with ’80s pop percussion, and harmonies inspired by ’90s R&B, Haim’s trademark sound can be attributed to the group’s lifelong attachment to musicianship. Fans headed to see Haim live for the first-time may be in for a surprise: The group’s two studio albums, Days Are Gone and Something to Tell You (Columbia/Sony) put slick pop song writing and production front and center. Live, the band shows off a rock star swagger that creates a wholly new experience that’s every bit as distinct as Haim’s studio recordings.

$42.50-$125. 7 p.m. (doors). Sat., April 28. With Lizzo. Coca Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave SE Suite 500. 470-351- 3866 Ext 38186. www.cocacolaroxy.com.

Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott, better known as Joey Bada$$, inhabits the equivalent of hip-hop’s no man’s land, appeasing fans on both sides of the then vs. now war.

Sharp lyricism and weighty content endear him to hip-hop heads who prefer revisiting their favorites from the ’90s to indulging in the trap-heavy, radio rap of today. While most contemporary rappers who garner the attention of the aforementioned fanbase rest squarely in the underground, Joey’s platinum single, “Devastated,” is proof that the Brooklyn-reared M.C. is capable of producing anthemic rap-pop songs that appeal to a much larger crowd.

Pointed social commentary shines through on tracks that pay homage to his classic boom-bap numbers and his more recently released radio-ready songs. With his latest album, All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, Joey reflects on the country’s ominous political climate. “Sorry America, but I will not be your soldier/Obama just wasn’t enough, I just need some more closure,” he raps on “Land of the Free.”

Simmie “Buddy” Sims III is set to back Joey Bada$$ through the Amerikkkana tour. Hailing from Compton, Buddy employed infectious energy to land a deal with Pharrell’s i am OTHER label. His latest single, “Black,” serves as a fun yet hard-hitting anthem to all black everything, from skin tone to historical figures. Buddy says there are a few things fans can expect from his live set: “A bunch of fun. A lot of energy and some real passionate singing. I sound like my records.”

$25. 7 p.m. (doors). Tues,. April 24. With Buddy, Boogie, and Dessie Hinds. Center Stage. 1374 West Peachtree St. N.W. 404-885-1365. www.centerstage-atlanta.com.

When Ladonnis “Skrrt Franklin” Crump and Ashley “Youth Pastor Troi” Jones decided to join forces as DJ duo 1-900-BANGKOK, they had one goal in mind. “We said let’s just do something crazy,” Crump explained. “Let’s try to grab people’s attention. That was like the starting point.”

A couple of months ago the duo began throwing parties that are definitely grabbing attention thanks to drum and bass filled setlists, the comfy confines of the Music Room and occasionally one of Atlanta’s most important entertainment staples — strippers. 1-900-BANGKOK is working hard to provide the city with the type of experiences that made “Old Atlanta” a legendary party city.

Both members of the duo grew up in Atlanta and felt inspired by tracks like the cult classic “My Boo” by the Ghost Town DJs as well as popular Florida acts like the 69 Boyz and Uncle Luke.

“We were always fans of bass music so when we came together we were like let’s make it extremely bass heavy and reminiscent of our childhood and the ’90s.

So far, the parties have been received well. Crump says each has drawn a larger, more energetic audience. He credits Atlanta’s diversity to some of the success as 1-900-BANGKOK pulls in dance influences from club scenes all over the country.

“Atlanta is growing. We’re growing so fast. There are so many people from so many places that I think it is really cool to know that we can have a party that introduces bounce music, Jersey club and Chicago footwork and people get it.”

1-900-BANGKOK is slated to drop their first single at the end of April. $5-$10 10 p.m. Fri., April. 6 (every first Friday of the month). Music Room. 327 Edgewood Ave Upstairs. 404-343-0111. www.boomboxatl.com.

In just seven years, Soulection made the jump from college radio station show to global brand, with sold-out shows around the world. Led by founders Joe Kay and Andre Power, the digital music and technology start-up (as they describe it) leverages pristine musical taste and current platforms to music that lies left of the mainstream. Kay and Power met in 2010 and began collaborating on events in San Diego. Along the way, they’ve broadcast through Red Bull Radio and London’s RInse FM, and are among the power-packed Beats 1 radio shows. In 2017, Soulection hosted its own music festival, boasting a lineup of over 30 artists. In true start-up fashion, Soulection uses its platform to push the limits of the music industry.

For two decades, Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins has used his raspy, Southern voice to tell epic tales of surviving squalor and becoming rich. Where some rappers come off as elitist after completing their meteoric rise from humble beginnings, Jeezy takes the angle of a caring professor sharing words of wisdom in hopes of inspiring the next generation of hustlers. The best part of the 40-year-old rapper’s stories of struggle-turned-triumph is that along the way he drops many gems that can be applied to any lifestyle. Jeezy’s latest opus, Pressure, sees him crafting vibes similar to his major-label debut Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, which turns 13 this July. For this he shares the stage with Tee Grizzley (pictured above).
