3 can't-miss shows: One More Time, Wolf Parade, Bill Nehill

One More Time: A Daft Punk Tribute, 10 p.m. Oct. 14, VENU (75 W Chippewa St.), $15-$20.

If you still are looking to keep the party going after spending the day at the Phoenix-headlined (and recently relocated) HRVST Festival, then head down to the Chip Strip (you heard me) for a tribute to electronic titans Daft Punk.

Since its debut in 1997, French house duo Daft Punk has released a steady stream of funk, rock and disco-infused party music for the better part of two decades. The group's most recent album was 2013's glitzy, guest-filled "Random Access Memories."

One More Time will be decked out in the Parisian pair's signature chromed helmets and dapper costumes, presenting a night full of Daft Punk material, plus original remixes.

Like many fall club shows, this concert was originally scheduled for the now-closed Waiting Room, so plan accordingly for the venue swap.

Manchester Orchestra, Joywave and more added to HRVST lineup

Wolf Parade, 8 p.m. Oct. 15, Town Ballroom (681 Main St.), $25-$29.

Nearly 10 years after the group's last area appearance in Asbury Hall at Babeville, the Montreal super-group of sorts Wolf Parade will be making a return appearance to downtown Buffalo.

Members of the Canadian indie act include very busy co-frontmen Spencer Krug (Sunset Rubdown, Frog Eyes, Swan Lake) and Dan Boeckner (Divine Fits, Operators).

The group officially broke its indefinite hiatus (seven years to be exact) this summer by announcing its fourth studio album "Cry Cry Cry," the long-awaited follow-up to 2010's "Expo 86," and by sharing the album's first single, the Krug led "Valley Boy." The comeback record was released on Oct. 6.

Joining Wolf Parade for its Buffalo stop will be the gritty power-pop outfit Charly Bliss.

Bill Nehill, 6 p.m. Oct 14, Electric Avenue (300 Ellicott St.), $5.

Bill Nehill, one of Buffalo's best songwriters will be back in business this weekend. A member of acts like pieces and TMMC, Nehill has been delivering tragic cuts of goth-folk for years now, sounding like a cross between Morrissey and Michael Stipe.

The musician will be warming up the early crowd for Brooklyn doom-folk artist Brook Pridemore.

You have two chances to catch Nehill this weekend. In addition to his Saturday gig at Electric Avenue, he also will be taking over happy hour next door at Mohawk Place for three hours of post-punk, new wave and much more. Further details of his happy-hour takeover can be found here.
