Speedy Ortiz at the Masquerade (Purgatory)
What started out as the solo project of frontwoman Sadie Dupuis, Speedy Ortiz melds Dupuis dreamlike indie pop vocals and lyricism with decidedly more fuzzy and rock focused instrumentals.

The Bakery serves up an exceptionally tasty triple-bill featuring Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel, Space-Saver, and Helton & Bragg. Listening Post regulars will no doubt be familiar with DfTaLS, the world’s most successful and longest-lived pairing of non-fixed pitch instrument players. Space-Saver is the latest project of Travis Thatcher, an Atlanta expat who conjures up joyous and frightening free noise collages from saxophones, drums, and oddments. For the last several years, homeboys Blake Helton (percussion, synth, electronics) and Colin Bragg (guitars, electronics) have been channeling everything from sci-fi soundtracks and Eberhard Weber to Indian ragas and Funkadelic. $5-$7 (suggested donations). 8:30 p.m. — Doug DeLoach
