Time again for Good Shows, our weekly roundup of what’s good in live music.
Take a trip back to the ’90s with grunge-rock babes Veruca Salt. The band has reunited to tour for the first time since 1995, but just because they’ve been off the map doesn’t mean they’re out of energy. They’re still wrecking eardrums left and right. Music Hall of Williamsburg, Friday, July 25 at 9 p.m., tickets $25
Brooklyn band The Antlers pour their damn hearts out on stage just for you. The moody indie-rockers are on tour promoting their fifth album, Familiars, and this show at Webster Hall is their final on the U.S. tour before they head to Europe. Nothing brings out the best in a band like going home. Webster Hall, East Village, Saturday, July 26 at 8 p.m., tickets $20
New York native and NYU alum Kiah Victoria combines R&B and trip-hop in a way that totally and unexpectedly works. Show this super-talented local girl some love. Mercury Lounge, Lower East Side, Sunday, July 27 at 8:30 p.m., tickets $10
OK, let’s just be upfront that tickets are an insane $75 to see Ms. Lauryn Hill at Brooklyn Bowl. But, this is a once-in-a-lifetime show. If you’re willing to shell out the cash, the five-time Grammy winner and Fugees royalty will entertain the shit out of you. Be warned: based on recent shows, attend this one at your own risk. Brooklyn Bowl, Williamsburg, Monday, July 28 at 8 p.m., $75
Daptone soul-singer Naomi Shelton paid her dues on the streets of Brooklyn in the ’60s. Now she’s back with her Gospel Queens, fresh off the release of their new album, Cold World. The show is free, so you really have no excuse not to see this living legend in the flesh. Rough Trade NYC, Williamsburg, Tuesday, July 29 at 7 p.m., tickets free.
