Southern rock has a sound all its own, as though the genre were light filtering through a fogged-up lens. For few bands is the refraction more prominent than in the jams of Florence, Mississippi-based band The Weeks. There's just a pinch of country in every track, but a punk sensibility found in early albums like debut record Comeback Cadillac (2008) gave way to shoegaze-y notes in Gutter Gaunt Gangster (2012) and Dear Bo Jackson (2013). This year, The Weeks released Two Moons, an album so shiny you could shave to your reflection in it. The beats are slow and driving, and vocalist Cyle Barnes' voice has an almost hypnotic timbre. Started by Cyle and his twin Cain when they were in their teens, the band has come a long way from Florence, but the sound is still steeped in something slow, sweet, easy and distinctly Southern.

With Future Thieves, and H.A.R.D. 8 p.m. $12-$15. The Olympic Venue, 1009 W. Main St., Boise,
