Here’s a quick roundup of some late-winter and spring concerts announced over the past couple days:
*St. Vincent will tackle her biggest local venue yet, the State Theatre, on April 3. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for $25-$29.50 through Ticketmaster and the State box office. The experimental Dallas art-rocker's new self-titled album is set to arrive February 25. The first single from it, “Birth in Reverse,” is posted below.
*Ex-Minneapolitan Bob Mould will return March 4 to the Woman’s Club Theatre of Minneapolis on a short acoustic tour tied to the 25th anniversary reissue of “Workbook,” his first solo album and last recording as a Minnesotan. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon via First Ave outlets for $25. He’s expected to play "selections from the record" (not the whole thing) and other songs that fit the "Workbook," um, mold, with only bassist Jason Narducy for accompaniment.
*Christian rocker TobyMac is bringing his “Hits Deep” tour to Xcel Energy Center for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, with guests Brandon Heath, Mandisa, Matthew West and Matt Maher. Tickets are $22-$42 and go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster and the X box office.

Tickets ($25) go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via Ticketfly.com. Gordon's new album, "Overstep," is due Feb. 25 via ATO Records. Anastasio is already set to play First Ave on Feb. 4.
