ZZ Top

That little ol’ blues band from Texas is helping out their homies who were harmed by Hurricane Harvey. Since last Friday, the Rock Hall of Fame trio has been donating all iTunes sales for the live version of “La Grange” from its current “Live! Greatest Hits From Around the World” to the Salvation Army for Harvey relief. Rest assured that the Houston-spawned band will offer “La Grange” along with “Tush,” “Legs” and “Sharp Dressed Man” when they bring their beard-fueled boogie back to the Twin Cities. (8 p.m. Sat. Mystic Lake Casino Showroom, Prior Lake, $55-$105.)

Part of the same Los Angeles jazz-funk collective that spawned Kamasi Washington and helped drive Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly,” Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner has had no trouble standing out from the crowd with his six-string bass guitar, oddball album and video imagery and viral “Tonight Show” performance with soft-rock heroes Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. His album “Drunk,” however, boasts a seriously potent, lightly melodic, deeply thumping sound, and attendees raved about his live set here at the Fine Line in February. (8:30 p.m. Sun., First Avenue, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls., $20-$25, eTix.com.)
