This week’s Soundboard is front-loaded with great shows over the next four evenings, starting with a rare two-night stand on Thursday and Friday at the Hideout by guitar-pop visionaries the dB’s—whose Chris Stamey was interviewed by Eleventh Dream Day’s Rick Rizzo this week in Artist on Artist. Also getting underway on Thursday night is the third iteration of the Neon Marshmallow Festival, which runs through Sunday at the Burlington Bar. Among the highlights are Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore—performing solo Saturday and in a duo with John Maloney on Sunburned Hand of the Man on Sunday—and Friday’s bill featuring the throbbing minimal techno of Container and the hacked lo-fi electronic music of Three Legged Race. If that’s not enough for you, there are more options from this week’s Soundboard after the jump.
