Weezer: With their plethora of goofy, catchy radio hits — from the heavy faves “Buddy Holly” and “Hash Pipe” to the lighter “Island in Sun” and “Beverly Hills” — Rivers Cuomo and his bandmates go over well as a fun, outdoor crowd-pleaser in summer. That explains why they’re back for their second State Fair appearance after also playing their second Basilica Block Party set last summer. Their new, Golden State-themed “White Album” adds to the breezy formula, including the Dan Wilson co-authored lead-off track “California Kids.” British throwback rockers the Struts and local power trio Fury Things open. (7 p.m. Sat., State Fair grandstand, $35-$45, eTix.com.)

Lauryn Hill: Even though she hasn’t released a studio album this century, the elusive hip-hop hero has been somewhat active on the performing circuit. This will be her third Minneapolis gig in five years. While the previous two might have seemed a bit haphazard (both started late but she delivered the goods), this one is part of a 16-concert tour with a theme — the MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling! Concert Series. Miss Lauryn Hill promises to feature special guests from the African diaspora. (8 p.m. Sun., First Avenue, $77, eTix.com.)

The Revolution: You’ve heard about the Revolution, Prince’s “Purple Rain” era band, reuniting to honor their late leader. It’s a three-night, sold-out stand featuring Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Bobby Z, Dr. Fink and Brownmark plus special guests, including Apollonia, André Cymone, Dez Dickerson and Questlove, who will be spinning music at the after-party. (9:30 p.m. Thu.-Sat., First Avenue, Mpls, $65-$99, sold out; after-party at 11:30 p.m., $10.) Jon Bream

Jose Feliciano: After cutting his teeth in Greenwich Village folk clubs with Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, he became famous for his hit interpretation of the Doors’ “Light My Fire” and “The Star-Spangled Banner,” recast with a slow, Latin jazz reading. The latter, performed at a 1968 World Series game, caused a stir, but he still won the Grammy for best new artist. There is nothing controversial about his 1970 hit “Feliz Navidad,” which has become a holiday perennial. (7 p.m. Mon. Dakota Jazz Club, Mpls. $40-$55)

Laughing Waters Bluegrass Festival: Chicago’s alt-twang songwriting hero Robbie Fulks is back for a second year at the popular, family-friendly Labor Day pickathon, featuring food and beer trucks and more music by the Platte Valley Boys, King Wilkie’s Dream, Sawtooth Brothers and others. (1-6:30 p.m. Mon., Minnehaha Falls Park, Mpls., free.)

Jenny Lewis: After winding down the tour cycle behind her best-received solo album to date, “The Voyageur,” the Los Angeles indie-rock hero is going straight into another tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her solo debut, “Rabbit Fur Coat.” Minneapolis has the kick-off date. The record launched Lewis out of her old band, Rilo Kiley, with a twangier flavor and a batch of songs that still sprinkle her live shows, including “Rise Up With Fists,” “Happy” and “You Are What You Love.” Her “RFC” collaborators the Watson Twins will also perform. (7:30 p.m. Tue., State Theatre, $35, Ticketmaster.com.)

Whitney: Two former Smith Westerns bandmates formed this lo-fi duo in Chicago last year and already sparked buzz over their Secret Canadian debut, “Light Upon the Lake,” full of hazy, falsetto-fueled strummers and a few arty rockers. (8:30 p.m. next Thu., Triple Rock, $15.)

Blink-182: Hoping to prove that their contentious split from “All the Small Things”-singing bandmate Tom DeLonge was just a small thing, bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker are keeping their ’90s pop/punk trio alive and juvenile. Hoppus is sharing vocal duties alongside new guitarist Matt Skiba of the Alkaline Trio. Their first album as Blink-182 v.2.0, “California,” has gotten a surprisingly favorable reception, but are the poppy hooks sharp enough for the trio to still pull in an arena-sized crowd? Opening bands A Day to Remember and All-American Rejects should help. (7 p.m. next Thu., Xcel Energy Center, $18.20-$77.50, Ticketmaster.com.)
