Design in Revolution: A 1960s Odyssey. This Philadelphia Museum of Art-style exhibit grab bag encompasses pop art from Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, Dean Brown’s photo series on the funeral of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and a sofa used in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. There’s also music, with Sly & the Family Stone and Cream songs playing in the gallery, psychedelic LP covers, Milton Glaser’s image of Bob Dylan with kaleidoscopic hair, and trippy posters from Bill Graham’s Fillmores East and West. Through Sept. 9 in the Art Museum’s Perelman Building.
Isaac Hayes reissues. Before he was an animated chef on South Park and after writing innumerable hits with David Porter for Stax records greats like Sam & Dave, Isaac Hayes was a mind-blowing, shaven-headed psychedelic soul superstar. Three LPs reissued on Craft Recordings capture that late ’60s, early ’70s era, from the mega-selling breakthrough of Hot Buttered Soul, which features 12-minute-plus slow-jam covers of “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Walk on By” to the double LP Shaft soundtrack to Black Moses, whose outlandish oversize album art folds to form the shape of a cross.
Superorganism. The eight-person international indie-pop band who met in New Zealand, bonded on Skype, and now live in London are fronted by deadpan teenage singer Orono Noguchi, and they make bouncy, immediately catchy music that simultaneously sounds sleekly modern and winningly unpolished. After turning heads at this year’s SXSW festival, they make their Philadelphia debut on Wednesday at Boot & Saddle.
Keeping the Beat. Three DJs for the price of one at this benefit for the School District of Philadelphia. The Keeping the Beat happy hour event features mixmasters Josh Wink and Rich Medina and Janet Jackson touring vet DJ Aktive. 6 p.m. Tuesday at Coda.
Caroline Rose. The former alt-country songwriter has made herself over into an often wickedly funny and winningly sardonic indie-pop act with lots of surprising musical moves on her new album, Loner. Thursday afternoon at Main Street Music and Thursday night at Johnny Brenda’s.
