The bulk of this week’s show recommendations in Soundboard happened over the past weekend, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t other worthwhile music to check out in the coming days. Remarkable singer Angel Olsen gives a homecoming concert on Monday at the Burlington following a short east-coast tour, including a stop in New York that earned a glowing rave from Ben Ratliff in the Times, and Monday’s weekly Robbie Fulks gig at the Hideout features Jon Langford of the Mekons. Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha will play music from his new album, Look to the Sky, Tuesday at Schubas, while former Bad Livers front man Danny Barnes rolls into town for a gig Wednesday at City Winery and Chicago soul great Syl Johnson brings his act to SPACE in Evanston. Selections from Soundboard are after the jump.
