After winding down the tour behind her best-received solo album, “The Voyageur,” indie-rock hero Jenny Lewis is going straight into another tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her solo debut, “Rabbit Fur Coat.” 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.” Minneapolis is the tour kickoff.

After cutting his teeth in Greenwich Village folk clubs with Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, Jose Feliciano 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, dakotacooks.com

Vivaldi, Messiaen, Respighi. Many composers have referenced birdsong in their music. Now add to that list Victor Zupanc, whose settings of Minnesota author Kevin Kling’s poems about birds — woodpeckers, Canada geese and hawks, among them — have been recorded by St. Paul new-music collective Zeitgeist. Three performances of “For the Birds” mark the project’s CD launch, with Kling himself narrating.

Hoping to prove that their contentious split from “All the Small Things”-singing bandmate Tom DeLonge was minor, bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker are keeping Blink-182 alive and juvenile. Hoppus is sharing vocal duties with new guitarist Matt Skiba of the Alkaline Trio. Their debut as the revamped Blink-182, “California,” has gotten a favorable reception, but are the poppy hooks sharp enough to still pull in an arena-sized crowd?


7 p.m. Thu., Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul. $18.20-$77.50, ticketmaster.com.
