BLUES

The groovemeister of modern urban blues, the king of the shuffle, Magic Slim brings his latest edition of the Teardrops to play old favorites and songs from their 2012 release “Bad Boy.” A few fun facts: Eddie Vedder personally picked Slim’s band to open for Pearl Jam. And in Japan there’s a popular diet pill called Magic Slim, which the 75-year-old bluesman has obviously never used. (9 p.m. Fri., Famous Dave’s Uptown, $7.) Surowicz

CLASSICAL

James Valenti makes his Schubert Club debut — the first tenor recital in its International Artist Series since 1972. A local favorite, he most recently sung the title role of Massenet’s “Werther” with Minnesota Opera last season. The program blends opera arias with art songs, the first half in French, the second in Italian. Arias from “Manon,” “Carmen,” Meyerbeer’s “L’africaine” and Verdi’s “Luisa Miller” are interspersed with songs by Reynaldo Hahn, Henri Duparc, Bellini and Puccini. Pianist Danielle Orlando, who frequently collaborated with Luciano Pavarotti, accompanies. (7:30 p.m. Sat., McKnight Theatre, 345 Washington St., St. Paul, $15-$60, 651-292-3268, www.schubert.org) William Randall Beard
