Tony Bennett: This week the Twin Cities has witnessed 72-year-old Roger Daltrey and 73-year-old Paul McCartney performing rock classics in concert. But if you want to experience the veteran singer whose voice has actually improved with time, then don't miss 89-year-old Tony Bennett. He's a masterful crooner, interpreting selections from the Great American Songbook with style and class. In recent years, his career has been enjoying waves of momentum, the latest being his 2014 Grammy-winning duet album, "Cheek to Cheek," and tour with Lady Gaga. And don't discount his latest album, "The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern," also a Grammy winner, with pianist Bill Charlap, who coincidentally will be at the Dakota Jazz Club next Wednesday. Bennett tours with his own combo. (7:30 p.m. Fri., State Theatre, Mpls., $73.50-$129.) Jon Bream

Fog release party: Of all the peculiar things Andrew Broder has done under the guise of Fog, going on hiatus for almost a decade ranks among the oddest. The acclaimed Minneapolis sonic guru — who formed the rockier band Cloak Ox in the interim and dabbled in DJ-ing and beatmaking — finally dusts off the moniker/mindset for a riveting new album, "For Good," recorded in part at Justin Vernon's April Base studio and issued on local experimental imprint Totally Gross National Product. It offers the familiar Fog blend of stark, evocative songwriting with frayed, sometimes jarring instrumentation, but of course it also sounds like nothing that's come before. His latest lineup includes guitarist Jeremy Ylvisaker and violinist Leah Ottman. Rap innovator Greg Grease and the Stand4rd's own sonic wiz Psymun open. (9 p.m. Sat., 7th Street Entry, $12-$15.) Chris Riemenschneider

Seratones: This hard-grinding soul-rock band from Shreveport, La., is led by a powerhouse, church-weaned woman vocalist, A.J. Haynes. They just earned an artist-to-watch nod from Rolling Stone and issued their debut on Fat Possum after tours with St. Paul & the Broken Bones and Houndmouth. (9 p.m. Fri., Turf Club, $10.) Riemenschneider

Jon Wayne & the Pain: Minneapolis's good-vibing reggae-rock quartet has played many a hippie-jam camp-outs and is now settling in for a two-night stand indoors. (9 p.m. Fri. & Sat., Triple Rock, $15.) Riemenschneider

Little Green Cars: The bookish boy/girl Irish rock quintet that invoked Yeats and Harper Lee on its 2013 debut just issued its follow-up album, "Ephemera," sounding like a gloomier the Head & the Heart. (8 p.m. Sat., Cedar Cultural Center, $20; in-store gig: 3 p.m. Sat., Electric Fetus, Mpls.) Riemenschneider

Tori Kelly: On her first trip through the Twin Cities, the pop-soul ingenue captured the attention of 3rdEyeGirl, who invited her to Paisley Park. She later captured the attention of the Grammys blue-ribbon committee, which nominated her for best new artist. (Meghan Trainor won.) (7:30 p.m. Mon. Northrop Auditorium, Mpls., $25-$35, Bream

Cate Le Bon: With echoes of the Velvet Underground and krautrock still prevalent and some of Joanna Newsom's cohorts for collaborators, the Welsh singer/songwriter is earning her best raves yet for her fourth album, "Crab Day." (7:30 p.m. Tue., Cedar Cultural Center, $15.) Riemenschneider

Bill Charlap Trio: It is hard to imagine a better vehicle for mainstream jazz lovers of Broadway tunes and the Great American Songbook. Charlap's mother was a singer, his dad a Broadway composer. Diana Krall lauds his "emotional genius," which can be heard on last year's Grammy-winning record of Jerome Kern songs that the pianist co-headlined with Tony Bennett. With longtime cohorts Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums, the pianist will likely showcase songs from the trio's just-released "Notes From New York," which stows imaginative swing and infectious grooves in an elegant rhythmic pocket. (7 & 9 p.m. Wed., Dakota, $20-$35.) Britt Robson

Anderson Ponty Band: Get your prog-rock fix with veteran jazz-fusion violinist Jean Luc Ponty and Jon Anderson, the longtime voice of Yes. The sextet was formed in the summer of 2014. (7:30 p.m. Tue. Ames Center, Burnsville, $32.50-$84.50.) Bream

Melissa Manchester: Thanks to much love from KQRS back in the mid-'70s, this New York singer-songwriter called Minneapolis her hottest market. "Midnight Blue" was her first hit before scoring with "Don't Cry Out Loud" and the Grammy-winning You Should Hear How She Talks About You,"and marrying a Minnesota man. (7 & 9 p.m. Thu. Dakota, $30-$45.) Bream

Harry Connick Jr.: The singer/pianist/bandleader added actor to his resume a long time ago and his most recent credit is "American Idol" judge, which enabled the world to get to know his personality better. (7:30 p.m. Thu. State Theatre, $79-$179.) Bream
