Music: Seeing as how I’ve walked out of more than a couple of shows at the Armory with my hearing temporarily impaired from the volume, it kind of makes sense that the venue has booked deaf hip-hopper Sean Forbes. This 30-year-old artist from Detroit plays quirky upbeat hip-hop despite being deaf since birth. Forbes was signed by the Bass Brothers, who also discovered Eminem. In 2006 Forbes co-founded D-PAN —Deaf Professional Arts Network — a nonprofit organization seeking to make music and music culture accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities. Sean Forbes plays Thursday, March 7, 8 p.m. at the Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $10. rochestermainstreetarmory.com.

Music: Whereas Baltimore’s All Time Low has been known to unabashedly wear its collective influences on its collective sleeve, its latest record, “Don’t Panic,” has smoothed out the seams of all the band’s Frankensteined influences. Instead it arrives at its own jagged take on pop-infused punk.
