Fruition with Mama Magnolia, 11 p.m. September 29

Fruition’s latest album, “Broken at the Break of Day,” shines a spotlight on all five band members, whether on the swapped lead vocals of “Dawn” or the irresistible beats of “Where Can I Turn.” As has been the case for over a decade, their sound is hard to define, but the songwriting and harmonies tie together their various influences. Belly up, $28-$45.

BAYNK, 9:30 p.m. September 30

Despite a youth spent falling in love with music and attending festivals, when New Zealander Jock Nowell-Usticke discovered electronic music, he was already a multi-instrumentalist and studying chemical engineering at the University of Canterbury. Although he was familiar with the work of artists like Flume and Skrillex, he had assumed a band was behind the dynamic productions, until a friend introduced him to Ableton. “As soon as I opened it, my mind was blown,” he said. Now 28, Nowell-Usticke is an established artist and producer working under the moniker BAYNK, with a trilogy of acclaimed EPs, over 250 million streams, tours in the US and Asia, and festival spots at Lollapalooza and Coachella under his belt. Belly up, $35 to $65.

SUSTO, 8 p.m. October 1

With a rock-infused sound that doesn’t shy away from radio-ready hooks, SUSTO keeps listeners engaged by refusing to occupy an easily defined space. Opening: Tommy the animal, a band that attempts to pay homage to rock bands of the 60s and 70s. The band thrives on the energy of live performances, stage antics and three-part harmonies.

Andrew Roberts-Gray and Brian Colley, September 30 to October 29

Carbondale-based artist Andrew Roberts-Gray generates works that reference low-key cultural traditions including science fiction, the history of the painted landscape, and the development of the thinking machine. Brian Colley has been working as a freelance artist and illustrator in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2010. His work is driven by a desire to dig deep within himself. “There I often find my unbridled imagination, inspired by astronauts and dinosaurs, outer galaxies and inner consciousness, the history of this planet and this universe, and the stories that inspire us to change and be better The paintings and prints I create are based in realism and have a tendency towards fantastical surrealism,” Colley told The Art Base,
