There are still tons of great shows to see this week. Here are some of the best:

Wednesday, June 19

Atlas Engine, Carrier, End Scene at Sunnyvale, 6:30 p.m.

Atlas Engine, the project of local musician Nick Lafalce, brings his hook-filled blend of celestial indie-rock and dream pop to Sunnyvale on Wednesday night. The band has plans to release their first single of 2019, “Running,” in early July. The song has been a staple of their live sets for the past six months, so you’ll likely hear it this Wednesday.

Carrier, a brand new project helmed by Adam Downer, are making their live debut, and End Scene, an orchestral indie-rock ensemble, are also on the bill. Oh, and this show is free!

Thursday, June 20

Future Generations, Petite League at Elsewhere Rooftop, 6 p.m.

The forecast is sunny and warm for Thursday night, so head on over to the rooftop of Elsewhere to hear new tunes from Future Generations and Petite League.  The two bands, who became friends after seeing each other on the highway en route to South by Southwest, recently shared new singles in anticipation of forthcoming full-length releases.

Future Generations just dropped “Spirit of My Youth” and “Try”, while Petite League shared “New York Girls,” the second single off of their forthcoming album, “Rattler,” which is set for release later this summer.

Friday, June 21

Walk Talk, Sonny Step at C’mon Everybody, 8:30 p.m.

Friday night’s lineup at C’mon Everybody features performances from R&B duo Walk Talk and soul artist Sonny Step. Step just shared his latest single, the ultra-smooth “Special,” while Walk Talk finished recording their debut album earlier this year.

Drop by this gig if you’re interested in hearing some of these songs, as you’ll likely hear an array of tunes from the record, which drops later this year!

Saturday, June 22

Jeanines, Holy Tunics, Free Time, Kevin Hairs at Alphaville, 8 p.m.

Jeanines and Holy Tunics are both celebrating the release of brand new albums on Saturday night at Alphaville. Jeanines released their self-titled debut on Slumberland Records last week, and it’s filled to the brim with bright and shimmering indie pop of the jangly variety.

Holy Tunics built on their college-rock mystique for their second LP, “Hit Parade Lemonade Supersonic Spree,” which dropped last Friday on Spain’s Meritorio Records. Also performing is the recently revived Brooklyn via Melbourne group, Free Time, and Kevin Hairs, whose 2018 EP Freak In The Sheets earned a rave review in Bushwick Daily.
