Setlist 

Where to go, what to hear.

Conshafter at Alley Katz

Say you're an alt-rock power-pop outfit like Richmond's own Conshafter, and you get the news that one of your songs is going on MTV's "My Super Sweet 16," the show that proves that money really can't raise your kids to be decent people. Since that's practically the only way to get on MTV these days, you, like Conshafter, have to hope that the music isn't run during a scene when a girl cries over not getting a fuchsia Range Rover. It's a gamble, but that's the music biz. And Conshafter continues to play its cards Thursday, June 29, with Rising Sons, Sagtikos and Ultra High Frequency, 6-11 p.m. $5. 643-2816.

Toto at Innsbrook After Hours

Oh, some may disagree that the best part of David Lynch's "Dune" was the soundtrack, über-futurist rock for traveling through space. Some people think Sting was the best part, but they're not thinking clearly. It was Toto's soundtrack, representing the first steps for a band that sort of went on to bend the '80s to its will with "Rosanna" (much better than The Police's hair-raising "Roxanne") and then with "Africa." Into their fourth decade, the six-piece is still putting out music, waiting for David Lynch to call again. Toto plays Innsbrook Wednesday, June 28, at 6:30 p.m. $10-$25. Call 794-6700 or visit www.innsbrookafterhours.com.

Sneaker Doc and Music at Element Lounge

Look to the noble Chuck Taylor: Its ebb and flow across the sandy beach of our culture proves that the sneaker business is about more than arch support. Deadstockmag.com proves the relevance of a $26 billion dollar industry with "Just for Kicks," a documentary screening at Element Lounge along with music by DJs Krames, Rudeboi, Bobby La Beat and Delinger Friday, June 30, 9 p.m.-2 a.m. $5. 539-8077.

Pearls and Brass at Wonderland

The Pennsylvania stoner rock trio passes through Richmond again after a show in January, reminding us what happens when the drag and churn of heavy blues smashes up against time signatures that change on a dime, clever lyrics and a haunted voice that might come out of a Pennsylvania bayou, assuming there are any. Pearls and Brass plays Wonderland with Hex Machine and Brown Sabbath Saturday, July 1, at 10 p.m. $9. 643-9233.
