Tonight’s act at Baby’s All Right is mysteriously listed as “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” but don’t expect PotterCon redux. That image of Alfred E. Neuman as the Boy the Who Lived is clearly a reference to a certain gap-toothed master of irony. And the opening band, “Another Juan,” would seem to be a play on his newly released mini-LP, Another One. You guessed it: Mac DeMarco is prone to having secret shows, and the folks at Baby’s All Right confirm that this is one of them. If you miss tonight’s all-ages affair (tickets, just $5, will be available at the doors, which open at 8:30 p.m.), feel free to say, “What, me worry?” Mac will be playing some not-so-secret shows at Bowery Ballroom on Aug. 17, Webster Hall on Aug. 18, Music Hall of Williamsburg on Aug. 19 and Warsaw on Aug. 20.

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.

The Beets are not dead, says frontman Juan Wauters; they’re just focusing on something new. For one thing, Wauters’s solo LP, North American Poetry (N.A.P), came out last week via Greenpoint label Captured Tracks. He wrote and performed all of the songs on the new record, with some minimal vocal and instrumental help from friends.
