Let’s play “would you rather.” Would you rather . . . bring in the summer with rain or with fresh music? What’s that? The latter, you say? Then stay indoors, keep reading Soundboard, and don’t take that Tree mixtape off repeat. Oh, and read on for this weekend’s picks.

On Thursday, Robyn Hitchcock plays at City Winery and Far East Movement plays at Macy’s, reminding us all that Far East Movement still exists.

Devendra Banhart headlines a show at Park West on Friday, while Los Angeles garage auteurs Detroit Cobras play at Double Door.

On both Saturday and Sunday Night, Bolt Thrower headlines sold-out shows at Reggie’s that are completely worth your Craigslist money. Or if wildin’ out to rickety psychedelia-hop is more your thing, catch Gaslamp Killer on Sunday at the Do-Division Street Fest.

And now, the Soundboard staff recommendations.
