BORIS at Le Poisson Rouge (Aug. 24, 7 p.m.). These prolific Japanese experimentalists have spent the past 26 years moving among the worlds of metal, noise, shoegaze, punk and all other varieties of distortion-filled, theatrical, catharsis-inducing music.

BILL FRISELL AND IKUE MORI at National Sawdust (Aug. 29, 7 p.m.). Here are two indomitable icons of New York’s downtown music scene, who in duet seem likely to create something both intimate and abstract.

WILLIAM PARKER’S IN ORDER TO SURVIVE at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola (Aug. 28-29, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.). Mr. Parker, an eminent avant-garde bassist, has convened bands for over two decades under the title In Order to Survive.

G. CALVIN WESTON at the Stone (Aug. 28-31, 8:30 p.m.). In the mid-1970s, at age 17, Mr. Weston hit the road with Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time, a leading jazz-funk fusion outfit.
