3 can't-miss club shows (April 20-23)

DYNAMO, 9 p.m. April 21, Lockhouse Distillery & Bar (41 Columbia St.), $10.

Lockhouse's eclectic winter concert series comes to a close as the Nashville band DYNAMO touches down in the Cobblestone distillery.

The must-see live act fuses funk, soul, R&B and rock into an explosive package that has taken the band on tour nationwide. DYNAMO released its debut album "Find Your Way" back in 2014, but look toward the live album "Live at Ocean Way" to get a proper taste of the band's unique sound before catching the real deal in person.

Lockhouse's comfy confines is sure to be packed by the time the set kicks off, so grab a ticket ahead of time here to lock in your spot.

Japanese Breakfast, 8 p.m. April 23, Mohawk Place (47 E. Mohawk St.), $10-$12.

Buzzing indie act Japanese Breakfast is set to make its Buffalo debut at the downtown music hot spot.

The side project of Little Big League's Michelle Zauner, the solo outfit finds the Philadelphia songwriter shifting away from her full-time band's shoegaze tendencies to a melancholic take on 1980's pop. Her well-received debut album "Psychopop" was shared last year.

Also on tap for the evening will be a performance from local dream rock act the Leones and a solo set from Buffalo native Rebecca Ryskalczyk. The musician is the front woman of the Fredonia-bred, Brooklyn-based rock act Bethlehem Steel.

Math the Band, 7 p.m. April 23, Sugar City (1239 Niagara St.), $6.

Sugar City's Niagara Street home base is the spot to end the weekend on a energetic note.

Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, Math the Band is the synth-punk pairing of Kevin Steinhauser and Justine Mainville. NPR described the intense duo as "bonkers" when referring to its reckless, sometimes injury inducing (the band, not audience members) performances.

With more than 1,000 shows under its belt since forming in 2001, the road warrior act continues to tour in support of its 2015 album "Math the Band the Band The Album," the latest addition to the group's busy catalog.

Opening for Math the Band will be the resurfaced lake-pop quartet Bryan Johnson & Family and garage trio Dead Lounge.
