Black Angels & Black Lips: The local date for this all-“black” tour is doubling as a release party for a new beer in an appropriately black can, Surly +1 golden ale, a partnership with First Ave. It’s a good excuse to tout to two great live bands, with the Austin, Texas-based Angels offering hypnotically whirring and reverberating psychedelic-rock roar fashioned after their hometown hero Roky Erickson, while the Atlanta-reared Lips deliver high-adrenaline, hard-boogying punk like a Southern version of the Clash. (8:30 p.m. Fri., First Avenue, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls., $25.)

Leslie Odom Jr.: He’s a jazz singer with a supple tenor voice. He was the co-star in the original cast of the hip-hop “Hamilton” on Broadway. And he likes to sing show tunes. He’ll honor all of the above with the Minnesota Orchestra, under the baton of Sarah Hicks. (8 p.m. Fri. & Sat. Orchestra Hall, $55-$140)

Kristin Hersh & Grant Lee Phillips: From the late-’80s/early-’90s “alternative” wave bands Throwing Muses and Grant Lee Buffalo, respectively, they share an imaginative, poetic songwriting style and equally distinctive voices. (8 p.m. Fri., Cedar Cultural Center, $22-$25.)

Ness Nite: The St. Paul rapper and singer came to light at age 19 brandishing her “braless/flawless/lawless” brand of confident, chillaxing hip-hop. She returns to town between trips to the South by Southwest conference and her new home of New York with a nationally buzzing album in tow. Titled “Dream Girl” and produced with Greg Grease and Metasota collaborator Mike Frey, the 12-song collection finds the 22-year-old riffing on Instagram selfies and body-image issues with feminist viewpoints and clever world play, the music ranging from “Lemonade”-like electro-pop to Stand4rd-style ambient grooves. (10 p.m. Fri., 7th Street Entry, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls., $10-$12.)

Brent Cobb: The cousin of Chris Stapleton/Sturgill Simpson producer Dave Cobb has written songs for the likes of Miranda Lambert and Kenny Chesney. He’s now touring with his own band and gaining traction as another cool Southern country-rocker to watch. (9 p.m. Fri., Turf Club, $12-$15.)

The Long Odds: Traces of early Uncle Tupelo and Jayhawks trickle into this fiddle-spiked Twin Cities alt-twang quintet’s promising debut album “Level Ground,” recorded at Pachyderm Studio with a guest spot by Yonder Mountain’s Allie Kral. (6:30 p.m. Sat., Mortimer’s Bar, Mpls., $5.)

Max Weinberg’s Jukebox: He’s a famous drummer from the E Street Band and Conan O’Brien’s talk show. He knows about 200 rock classics. And he and his combo of unfamous musicians will answer requests and perform them like a live jukebox. (7 & 9 p.m. Sat. Dakota Jazz Club, $35-$64.)

Wolf Alice: The British quartet has gone from the indie-rock buzz bin to mainstream-teetering status with its single “Don’t Delete the Kisses,” a mellower, backseat-make-out kind of tune that belies the band’s grungier power. Lead howler Ellen Roswell and her London-based crew are hitting the American clubs ahead of a summer of festival dates touting their second album, “Visions of a Life.” Named NME’s second-best album of 2017, it promises a wider range of moodiness from a band that already had a strong live show. (8 p.m. Tue., First Avenue, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls., $20, eTix.com. Free in-store: 6 p.m. Mon., Electric Fetus, 2000 3rd Av S., Mpls.)

Colter Wall: This 22-year-old newcomer from Canada sounds like he’s 60. He’s kind of a cross between Waylon Jennings and Townes Van Zandt. He’s back for his second visit in less than a year. (8 p.m. Tue. Fine Line, $20-$35)

Patricia Barber: She is the rare jazz artist who is equally convincing as a singer, songwriter/composer, pianist and bandleader. She can be heard most Mondays at the Green Mill in Chicago; in fact, she’s just released her third live recording from the long-lived Windy City jazz joint. The hyper-literate jazz force makes one of her infrequent trips to Minneapolis. (7 p.m. Wed. Dakota Jazz Club, $30-$40.)

Cindy Wilson: After more than five decades as the beehive blonde in the buoyant, new-wave B-52’s, Wilson has released her first solo album, “Change.” There is plenty of synth pop but not the fun, frothy stuff of the B-52’s; rather the music is moody, mature and emotional. Don’t expect any B-52’s material; set lists have been drawn from “Change” and two solo EPs. Opening are Olivia Jean, Easter Island and DJ Jake Rudh. (8 p.m. Wed. Turf Club, St. Paul, $20-$22, etix.com)

Yo La Tengo: Like the Minneapolis club it’s played so many times before, the New Jersey trio has remained a revered mainstay in indie-rock for more than 30 years and maintains as much luster as ever. The new album “There’s a Riot Going On” lives up to the storied discography with a heavy dose of the band’s lighter, hushed side alongside some poppy gems. (8 p.m. Wed., First Avenue, $25.)

Acid Dad: The scuzzy-sounding, hoodlum-looking band of New York-based youths — including Minnesota-rooted guitarist/singer Sean Fahey — earned a good SXSW buzz last week with their heavy but hazy psychedelic rock. (8:30 p.m. Wed., 7th Street Entry, $10-$12.)

Shemekia Copeland and Carolyn Wonderland: Copeland is a blues-rock powerhouse, with a big voice, big personality and big sense of entertainment. She sings with great control whether doing country blues originals from 2015’s “Outskirts of Love,” rock classics or blues tunes that her late father, Johnny Copeland, made famous. Making this gig doubly appealing is co-headliner Wonderland, a Texas blues guitarist and singer who lives up to her name. (7 p.m. Thu. Dakota Jazz Club, $40-$45)

Los Amigos Invisibles: The Venezuelan band was one of David Byrne’s first great discoveries on his worldly Luaka Bop album and has continued to make wildly enlivening albums laden with psychedelic jazz, funk and Latin rock. (7:30 p.m. Thu., Cedar Cultural Center, $20-$25.)
