3 can't-miss shows: Amigo the Devil, Ricky Hell & the Voidboys, GRLwood

Amigo the Devil, 6:30 Nov. 29, Rec Room (79 W. Chippewa), $15.

Don't let a nasty food coma stop you from heading downtown to catch a set from on-the-rise folk artist Amigo the Devil.

The dark country singer-songwriter (born Danny Kiranos) will be passing through town as he tours in support of his acclaimed 2018 effort "Everything is Fine." The 15-track collection of metal-tinged murder-folk recalls the likes of Waylon Jennings and Tom Waits and features contributions on drums from Rage Against the Machine's Brad Wilk.

This summer, Kiranos followed up his big year by sharing the live EP "Bridge City Sessions," which features selections from the macabre album and then spent a couple of months opening for the likes of Dropkick Murphys and Clutch.

Doom-folk act King Dude and the delivish doo-wop outfit Twin Temple also will be performing.

Ricky Hell & the Voidboys, 7 p.m. Dec. 3, Duende at Silo City (85 Silo City Row), $5 to $10 suggested donation.

Gutter-pop act Ricky Hell & the Voidboys will be rolling into Silo City for a gig at Duende.

The scuzzy Cleveland band has been making noise in its Rust Belt city following the release of its 2018 self-titled effort. The 13-track collection of rippers is dark yet catchy and full of pop sensibilities under all the fuzzy racket. Fans of Wavves, Dead Gaze and No Age should eat it all up.

On hand for local support will be the trashy garage rock outfit Slow Cooker. The quartet is no stranger to the Silo City space as it celebrated the release of its debut full-length "Do A Kickflip" back in May at Duende.

Make sure to arrive early as DJs Dan Oh and Kid Spitholomeaux will be spinning some choice jams to get the party started.

GRLwood, 7 p.m. Dec. 4, 9th Ward @ Babeville (341 Delaware Ave.), $10.

Buzzing scream-pop act GRLwood will be paying a visit to the 9th Ward.

Quickly rising to a cult status in its hometown after forming in 2017, the must-see Kentucky duo is touring in support of its sophomore outing "I Sold My Soul To The Devil When I Was 12," which was shared back in July. Recalling the likes of early Sleater-Kinney and the Ramones, the cathartic collection of surf-tinged punk leans heavily on queer and feminist themes while addressing the struggles of adolescence.

Queer-core trio Tina Panic Noise will be providing local support for GRLwood. After a brief radio silence, the ferocious three-piece is returning to the stage to perform songs from its summer release "White is the Color of Death."
