RadioBDC is serious about our commitment to great music, so every week we scour the Boston music scene to pick out the best of the best.

Here are this week's picks.

Wednesday, March 20

The New Lights, Sand Reckoner and Reigning Sound, the upbeat garage-punk project of Greg Cartwright (formerly of Oblivians), are at T.T. the Bear's Place. ($12 / 18+ / Doors at 8:30 p.m.)

Thursday, March 21

Australian teens San Cisco, who you've seen Live in the Lab and heard on RadioBDC, will be at Great Scott in Allston with Chaos Chaos (formerly Smoosh) and Steph Barrak. ($14 / 18+ / Doors at 9 p.m.)

The Middle East Upstairs will see Parlour Bells, hopefully playing songs from their 2012 album Thank God for the Night. Also playing are The Susan Constant, The Deep North, and The Arcane Comedy. ($10 / 18+ / Doors at 8 p.m.)

Friday, March 22

Allston DIY staples and basement favorites Pile and Fat History Month are at the Middle East Upstairs with Kal Marks and Big Mess. ($9 / 18+ / Doors at 8 p.m.)

Meanwhile, lady electropoppers The Floating Heads are headlining the Pill dance party at Great Scott for the release of their new EP, Aquamarine. ($10 / 21+ / Doors at 10 p.m.)

Saturday, March 23

Dublin folk rockers Little Green Cars and Boston locals Mean Creek are at The Sinclair in Cambridge. ($12 / 18+ / Doors at 8 p.m.)

Sunday, March 24

Brighton Music Hall plays host to model/actress/singer/songwriter Sky Ferreira and How to Dress Well, with High Heights. ($13 / 18+ / Doors at 8 p.m.)

Classics of the alt-rock genre, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released a new album, Push the Sky Away, last month. It's a little on the moody side, and hopefully the group will also bring the energy from previous albums to their show at the Orpheum. ($38+ / 18+ / Doors at 8 p.m.)
