Sure, maybe you aren’t going to attend all 17 shows we’re recommending this week — that would be an impressive feat. But with a variety of sounds from roots to retro rock to indie rock to jazz to punk to global folk fusion, you’ve got no excuse for not seeing at least once concert in the next seven days. Read on for our recommendations.

Tuesday 11/6: Girlpool at Union Transfer

Girlpool returns to Philly for a Union Transfer gig Tuesday night, the perfect outlet for those looking to alleviate some election night stress. The LA-based duo has once again teamed up with their friends in Porches for a co-headlining bill; Palberta will open. Girlpool’s most recent album is last year’s Powerplant, and they shared two new singles last month. // 8:30 p.m., $20-$25, AA // TIX + INFO – Sarah Hojsak

Wednesday 11/7: Yaeji at Union Transfer

New York electronic musician Yaeji has mastered the art of lo-fi house music, and she’ll bring her singular sound to Union Transfer this Wednesday for her biggest Philly show yet. The producer, vocalist and DJ came up in the Brooklyn dance scene and carved out her own place with her two EPs, which feature lyrics in both Korean and English. Yaeji’s newest single, “One More,” is out now. // 8:30 p.m., $20, AA // TIX + INFO – S.H.

Wednesday 11/7: Brett Dennen at World Cafe Live

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen makes a stop at World Cafe Live this Wednesday. Currently on tour behind his new album Here’s Looking At You Kid, the California rocker is a pro at writing catchy songs with folksy, feel-good vibes. Erin Rae opens the show, and a VIP meet-and-greet experience is also available. // 8 p.m., $25-$27, AA // TIX + INFO – S.H.
