Cody Simpson and Justin Bieber have a few things in common: Both were discovered after posting videos on YouTube, they’re managed by the same guy (Scooter Braun) and started out with clean, polished, cheery pop and an abundance of hair. A blond Aussie, Simpson, 16, got Flo Rida to rap on his single “iYiYiY,” but, at this stage, he sounds more Radio Disney than Top 40. (7 p.m. Tue., Mill City Nights, $19.50. All ages.) Bream

 

Some of Marilyn Manson’s most memorable local shows of the past half-decade have been at Myth nightclub, which is a good size for his mid-level, post-hitmaking fan base and offers terrific sight lines for his usual heavy employment of flashy production and stage gimmickry. The “Beautiful People” singer apparently sees it as a beautiful friendship, too, since he’s back for the second time in a little over a year. Picture Me Broken and Downtread open.

With its high-revving garage-rock sound and Southern Californian low-rider aesthetic, Social Distortion is one First Avenue mainstay that’s well-suited to the biker clientele that often parks its vehicles in the lot used for Cabooze Plaza concerts. It’s also one of the few ’80s punk bands that haven’t lost their grit or might, with haggard-sounding frontman Mike Ness getting more impressive with age. “Nuggets”-evoking Tennessee trio Cheap Time and former Loved Ones singer Dave Hause open. (6 p.m. Tue., Cabooze Plaza, $30.) Riemenschneider
