Glass Animals: Currently enjoying radio play across the local dial from pop station KDWB to alt outlet 89.3 the Current, this lightly psychedelic, electro-smooth rock quartet got its break in 2014 from Adele and Florence + the Machine collaborator Paul Epworth, who made them the flagship act of his label. Their peanut-buttery hit “Gooey” and widespread festival gigs last year led to big hype for their month-old second album, “How to Be a Human Being,” and now they jump from the puny 7th Street Entry to the metro area’s biggest nightclub in two short years. London’s Pumarosa opens. (7 p.m. Fri., Myth, all ages, $31-$36, eTix.com.)

 

Luísa Maita: The innovative 34-year-old singer-songwriter played the Cedar once before after her debut album, “Lero-Lero,” earned her the Brazilian equivalent to a Best New Artist Grammy. She is finally coming back to support her second record, “Fio da Memória,” which promises more of an experimental, ambient electronic flavor like the samba equivalent to FKA Twigs. (8 p.m. Fri., Cedar Cultural Center, Mpls., $20-$25)

 

Dinosaur Jr.: The heyday lineup of J. Mascis’s Boston-reared fuzz-roar trio — with Sebadoh’s Lou Barlow on bass and Murph on drums — has now been reunited longer than it was together in the late-‘80s. Its output has arguably been as stellar, too, with the new album “Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not” delivering the goods once again. (9 p.m. Fri., First Avenue, $25.)

 

Indeed Hullabaloo: The last big outdoor brewery bash of the year will kick off with raw punk kids Catbath and Bruise Violet and end seven bands later with cosmic groovers Night Moves on Saturday, while Sunday boasts rootsier faves Romantica, Jack Klatt, Actual Wolf and more. (Noon-10 p.m. Sat., Indeed Brewing, 711 15th Av. NE, Mpls., free.)

 

Alessia Cara: Canada’s answer to Lorde, the 20-year-old she makes no apologies for who she is (‘Wild Things”) and knows how to blow off a guy who takes her to the wrong scene (“Here”). Opening are Canadian newcomer Ruth B and Nathan Sykes, formerly of the Wanted. (7:30 p.m. Sat. Orpheum, $39.50-$45.)

 

Sonny Knight & the Lakers: Best known for its fun romp “Juicy Lucy” and covers of Rodriguez and Beatles tunes, the multi-generational eight-man groove machine gets serious about songwriting on its new sophomore studio album, “Sooner or Later.” Various members pitched in on a strong batch of nine original tunes that speak to modern struggles and cover a wider array of sonic territory, from Curtis Mayfield-style psychedelic soul to classic Stax sounds to gospel-tinged ballads. Their release party features Duluth throwbacks Big Wave Dave & the Ripples and local R&B upstarts Nooky Jones. (8 p.m. Sat., First Avenue, $15-$17.)

 

Seratones: Alabama Shakes comparisons are sticking like glue to this punky soul-rock band from Shreveport, La., featuring a powerhouse African-American woman singer surrounded by three Southern-rooted rocker dudes. The grungy, frenetic hard-rock boogie on their debut album, “Get Gone,” was produced by Squirrel Nut Zippers alum Jimbo Mathus and issued by the Black Keys’ old label, Fat Possum Records. (9 p.m. Sat., Turf Club, St. Paul, $10)

 

Las Migas: This Barcelona-based quartet of women is becoming a darling of world music fests and college performance halls with their fresh, playful spin on passionate flamenco music. (7:30 p.m. Sun., the Cedar, all ages, $20-$25.)

 

Kanye West: Insert all the egomaniacal symbolism you want into the fact that Chicago’s dually loved/hated hip-hop icon is performing on a floating stage for his current outing, the Saint Pablo Tour. At least he’s finally landing in the Twin Cities again, after three different cancellations since his last local date in 2007. And how fitting his so-called Saint Pablo Tour hit St. Paul, after picking up mostly favorable reviews along the way. Let’s just hope his wife doesn’t get tied up in another $10 million jewelry heist, a (valid) reason he canceled a show last week. (8 p.m. Mon., Xcel Energy Center, $29.50-$129.50, Ticketmaster.com.)

 

Opeth and the Sword: These two metal bands from Sweden and Texas, respectively, share a knack for reviving classic ‘70s sludge and prog-rock influences in inventive and thundering ways. (8 p.m. Mon., First Avenue, $35.)

 

King: This trio featuring the Strother twins from Minneapolis is one of the great discoveries of 2016. The L.A.-based threesome has crafted a gauzy, jazzy, soulful sound with complex vocal harmonies and subtle rhythms and washes. They are intoxicating live with a vibe that’s warmer than their breezy, atmospheric debut album, “We Are King.” (7 p.m. Mon. Dakota, $27-$35.)

 

Jack Garratt: With his single “Worry” in rotation every half-hour or so on 89.3 the Current in recent months and ample hype from the U.K. press, this bearded, falsetto-voiced British singer/songwriter is already a First Ave main room act at age 24 with only one record to his name. He has quite a unique to live act to show off, though, as he plays a variety of instruments including drums and guitars at once. (8 p.m. Tue., First Avenue, $22.50, eTix.com.)

 

Nick Lowe: One of the great minor figures of British pop, he’ll offer his wit and hits, including “Cruel to Be Kind,” “The Beast in Me” and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding.” Always a treat. Josh Rouse opens. (7 p.m. Tue. Dakota, sold out)

 

Sia: In concert and in videos, pop star Sia never lets you see her face. Her first arena headline tour is more like a series of performance-art pieces than a conventional pop concert. In short, the bewigged Aussie tries hard not to be the visual focal point as dancers and famous actors on video screens join her as she offers “Alive,” “Chandelier” and other hits. Sexy soul man Miguel opens. (7 p.m. Thu., Oct. 13, Target Center, Mpls., $35-$125, axs.com)

 

Official Prince Tribute Concert: The move from U.S. Bank Stadium to Xcel Energy Center was a blessing. The lineup may seem odd — Christina Aguilera and John Mayer? — but Prince had lots of admirers. And associates. The lineup includes Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Morris Day & the Time, Tori Kelly, Mint Condition, Donna Grantis, Liv Warfield and Judith Hill. Members of the NPG, led by concert music director Morris Hayes, will be the main backup band. (7 p.m. Thu., Oct. 13, Xcel Energy Center, $19.99-$152.50.)
