Raggy Monster may have taken a short-lived hiatus in 2014 after guitarist Christian Morgan announced he was leaving the band to focus on his family. But the West Palm Beach indie alt-rock collective soon found a new guitarist — and bassist — to make them whole once again. Two years later, the band — whose keyboardist and lead vocalist, husband and wife Billy Schmidt and Rachel DuVall, also perform as Whiskey Wasps — is back in business. Check them out at Respectable Street this week.
Presented by Flaunt. 10 p.m. Thursday, January 7, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-832-9999; respectablestreet.com. Admission is free.

Little River Band
"When Little River Band first started out, they had two goals," bassist and Delray Beach resident Wayne Nelson told New Times in 2012. "To make great vocal harmonies and to conquer American radio. They did both." And in doing so, they also became one of the best vocal harmony bands in rock. Check out these Aussies when they return to South Florida for some good ol' rock at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre.
With Ambrosia and Player. 6 p.m. Saturday, January 8, at Pompano Beach Amphitheatre, 1806 NE Sixth St., Pompano Beach; 954-946-2402; pompanobeacharts.org. Tickets cost $48 to $73 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.
