Led by singer Anna Cataldo (who also plays in Leather Daddy), Boston’s Exit Order has been around since 2013 when they released their debut seven-song demo. Four years later, the band is back with a new release Seed of Hysteria,a ten-track album full of d-beat punk drums and distorted guitars that take unexpected turns throughout the chaotic tracks. With Dame, The Unit, Surplus, $8, 8pm, The Land In Between DIY, 527 El Paso. — CC Perhaps now best known for her feature on Beyonce’s track “Formation”, Big Freedia has been representing New Orleans long before she teamed up with the Lemonade star. Dubbed the ambassador of bounce, a style of high energy dance music with lots of call-and-response party and Mardi Gras Indian chants, Freedia’s been convincing audiences to literally shake their asses since her first single, 1999’s “An Ha, Oh Yeah.” Fast forward nearly two decades later, and Big Freedia is now an icon in the LGBTQ community. Come prepared to bounce – she’s known to pull audience members out of the crowd to dance on stage. With Wayne Holtz, $20, 7pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N.

Originally based in Brooklyn, songwriters Anne Cunningham and David Lerner eventually ended up in Taos, New Mexico and have been releasing music as a duo since 2012 with their debut Over and Around the Clove. The sound is sort of a Beatles meets Iron and Wine mash up that probably best falls into the folk category. On tour in support of their new record Headlands, which was released last month, Trummors is the perfect excuse to kick back with a few brews on a Thursday night under the Texas stars.
