WAY UP THERE | The rise to prominence of Maine psych-rock band COKE WEED has been nothing short of remarkable. As if catching the US still in the insatiable binge of its post-Nirvana boom, the group busted out two haunting, velvety records in three years and scored a national gig opening for the Walkmen, all the while operating from Bar Harbor, which isn’t exactly the new Brooklyn. They’ve lately been chumming with the singular blues musician MICAH BLUE SMALDONE, whose folk compositions have evolved over the years from faithful delta ditties to mesmerizing long-form meditations on the macabre. They play sets both separate and together (we’re told), along with the shapeshifting rock act AN EVENING WITH. 9 pm; $6 at Empire Dine and Dance.
