After ending her 16-year retirement last year, singer/keyboardist Christine McVie has made Fleetwood Mac whole again. When the Rock Hall of Famers kicked off their reunion tour last September in Minneapolis, the performance was rewarding but didn't quite feel lived-in yet. Now after 40 gigs and a hiatus for the holidays, the "Rumours"-era lineup is back to launch the second leg of its tour in the Twin Cities. Expect the set list to be the same and the band to be refreshed. Read an interview with Stevie Nicks at www.startribune.com/music. (8 p.m. Fri., Xcel Energy Center, $49.50-$179.50.) Jon Bream

Held up as the Twin Cities' first punk band — and really one of the first in America to sign a sizable record deal — blasting and blustery trio the Suicide Commandos save their reunions for special occasions. This one is the first in a series of 10 concerts marking 89.3 the Current's 10th anniversary. They will be joined by a couple of younger acolytes, Craig Finn and Tad Kubler of the Hold Steady. The onstage pairing is coupled with a limited-release 10-inch record of in-studio tracks from each band, which the public radio station is offering to members. Stiletto-heeled punkabilly quartet L'Assassins open. (8 p.m. Fri., Turf Club, sold out.) Chris Riemenschneider

During a raw but elegant set at the Dakota in December 2013, Joe Henry shared old stories of his many Minneapolis ties — sleeping in beds with the Jayhawks' Gary Louris was a highlight — along with a handful of new tunes that wound up on last year's living-room-masterpiece of an album, "Invisible Hour." Both the record and the Dakota show harked back to the Michigan-bred song man's Americana-flavored albums of the early '90s, before he became a renowned producer for the likes of Solomon Burke, Bonnie Raitt and Elvis Costello/Allen Toussaint. (7 p.m. Fri., Dakota, $35.) Riemenschneider

First held in 2002 ahead of Johnny Cash's 70th birthday, "Cash Only: A Tribute to the Man in Black" was created to spotlight the American music icon's influence on rock music as much as country. It also seemed like a way to fill the Cabooze in the dead of winter. Thirteen years later, the tribute still delivers on all fronts, with Midwest country vet and Cash friend Sherwin Linton as the centerpiece, surrounded by rowdy honky-tonk outfits Trailer Trash and the White Iron Band, garage-rockers Ol' Yeller and Eleganza! and singer/songwriters Erik Koskinen and Jennifer Markey. (8:30 p.m. Fri., Cabooze, $12-$16.) Riemenschneider

Just as the band was catching some local buzz, White Boyfriend is changing the name it intended as a "sarcastic commentary on the normalization of whiteness." The trio grew wary of alienating potential fans so it will celebrate its debut album — laden with lo-fi synths spliced with organic instrumentation, dual female/male lead vocals and dreamy harmonies — and announce a new moniker at a gig also featuring Fort Wilson Riot and up-and-coming synth-punks Yoni Yum. (10 p.m. Fri., 7th Street Entry, $5.) Michael Rietmulder

Calling it a one-time-only reunion, 12 Rods is making sure all eras and lineups of the band are represented at its first show in more than 10 years. Brothers and bandleaders Ryan and Ev Olcott — who earned many accolades and a V2 record deal in their initial 12-year run but only meager commercial success — invited eight other ex-members to take part in the show, from original drummer Christopher McGuire on up to his replacement Dave King and the then-young guitarist who would become a king, Jake Hanson. They're playing to tout the reissue of 2002's swan song "Lost Time" on Justin Vernon's Chigliak label. Expect plenty of songs from the other records, too. Read an interview with the Olcotts at startribune.com/music. (9 p.m. Fri., First Avenue, $20.) Riemenschneider

A favorite at the Current going back to Year One, the Walkmen's cord-shredding singer Hamilton Leithauser is headlining another of the station's 10th-anniversary parties under his own name as his old band remains on hiatus. He just dropped a stirring new song, "Room for Forgiveness," to add to the lush and surprisingly lovely tunes he produced on last year's solo album, "Black Hours." His new live band includes plenty of familiar names, with Walkmen guitarist Paul Maroon, Shins keyboardist Richard Swift and Fleet Foxes multi-instrumentalist Morgan Henderson. Nashville fuzz-rockers Bully open. (9 p.m. Sat., Turf Club, $15.) Riemenschneider

After a quiet span without a lot of gigs, metallic haze-rock duo Bloodnstuff has come roaring back to life. Singer/guitarist Ed Holmberg and drummer Dylan Gouret signed a deal with Swedish hard-rock label Fuzzorama Records and joined Southern Cali stoner-rock greats Fu Manchu on a European tour last fall. Hometown fans can hear what the noise is all about on a great triple bill with instrumental prog-metal quartet Zebulon Pike and experimental trio Hardcore Crayons. (10 p.m. Sat., Triple Rock, $8-$10.) Riemenschneider

A Twin Cities group for all occasions, the Steeles are an ideal choice to present a musical tribute to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. J.D., Fred, Jearlyn, Jevetta and Billy Steele will combine soul, R&B, gospel and probably some preaching and history lessons at a time when civil rights issues are once again in the forefront. (6 & 8 p.m. Sun., Dakota, $28-$36.) Bream

Devil Makes Three is an old-timey yet edgy, forward-thinking Southern California acoustic trio with banjo and stand-up bass that falls somewhere between Old Crow Medicine Show and Trampled by Turtles (which it frequently joins on touring lineups). Working on the follow-up to their Buddy Miller-produced 2013 album "I'm a Stranger Here," the group takes over the main room with support from another Americana act on the verge, Austin's Joe Pug, who made his upcoming album "Windfall" with Wilco's Pat Sansone. (8:30 p.m. Sun., First Avenue, $20.) Riemenschneider

Billy Idol reared his spiky blond hair and unerasable snarl last year with an autobiography, "Dancing With Myself," and a new album, "Kings and Queens of the Underground." The book recounts the 1980s MTV hero's indulgences in sex, drugs and bratty behavior (he had a brief fling with Prince's old pal Vanity). The album, produced by Yes man Trevor Horn, reflects the swagger, hooks and bombast of vintage Idol, though there's nothing as potent as "White Wedding," "Rebel Yell" or "Dancing With Myself." On tour, Idol will be joined by longtime guitarist Steve Stevens for an acoustic set. Mary Lucia will emcee this Current 10th anniversary gig with Little Man and Tropical Depression opening. (7 p.m. Mon., Turf Club, sold out.) Bream

Minneapolis-reared, Brooklyn-based Jose James has earned a sterling reputation for his innovative melding of jazz, R&B, electronica and hip-hop. Last year's "While You Were Sleeping" had harder edges, with some indie-rock urges, than his outstanding "No Beginning No End," an old-soul album with new ideas that ranked as my top album of 2013. The super-talented singer is experimenting again this year with "Yesterday I Had the Blues: The Music of Billie Holiday," due in March. He'll preview the album in front of friends, family and mentors. (7:30 p.m. Sat., Presentation Hall at Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, $24; 7 p.m. Tue.-Wed., Dakota, $35.) Bream

Since 10 is the age when many of 89.3 the Current's core audience first viewed "Purple Rain" (without their parents' knowledge), it seems appropriate for the station to throw in a tribute for its 10th anniversary. Hip-hop stalwarts Heiruspecs will serve as the house band for a re-creation of the soundtrack to follow a screening of the film. Guest vocalists include Lizzo, Maurice Jacox, Ashley Dubose and Tickle Torture's Elliott Kozel. Expect a little camp and cheese but mostly a reverent tribute to Minnesota's musical Holy Grail. (8 p.m. Tue., Fitzgerald Theater, 10 E. Exchange St., St. Paul, $15.) Riemenschneider

The Vaselines were just a blip on the underground-music radar in the late-'80s, but one of their biggest fans was Kurt Cobain, who covered "Molly's Lips" with Nirvana and talked them up enough to earn the Scottish band a new following. Co-leaders Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee reunited in 2008 around Sub Pop Records' 20th anniversary festival, and it went so well they're still at it. They just put out only the third album in their discography, "V Is for Vaselines," offering a fun blast of Ramones-inspired pop/punk. Philadelphia trio Amanda X opens. (7:30 p.m. Thu., Cedar Cultural Center, $18-$20.) Riemenschneider


Honeydogs frontman Adam Levy shows more of an animalistic side in his hard-grooving covers band Hookers & Blow, but now he's dealing with animals in a more literal way via his other other group, Bunny Clogs. The funky family band — with daughters Esther and Ava, ages 16 and 13 — covers a zoology textbook's array of funny-sounding critters on their second album, "Whales Can't Whistle," from platypuses and naked mole rats to nudibranchs and even something called "Chipantula." The music is as diverse and way more cute than a lot of those creatures, with sprinklings of Latin funk and hip-hop buoyed by contributions from DJ BK-One, Grrrl Prty rapper Manchita and guitar-wielding nephew/cousin Isaac Levy, 11. Jeremy Ylvisaker's kid-friendly Guitar Party opens the release party. (11 a.m. Sat., Cedar Cultural Center, $10-$12, free for 2 & under.) Riemenschneider


Wale's latest high-profile pairing isn't with prior musical partners such as Miguel and Rick Ross, but comedian Jerry Seinfeld, with whom he shares the new cover of Complex magazine. The union makes sense — the Washington, D.C., area rapper's upcoming release is titled "The Album About Nothing." California duo Audio Push, Miami rapper Bizzy Crook and local fave Greg Grease open. (8 p.m. Mon., Varsity Theater, $25-$39.50.) Riemenschneider

He twice played to a packed house in First Avenue's main room and to big crowds all over North America as part of Atmosphere's "Southsiders" tour, but St. Paul wiz kid deM atlaS is finally headlining 7th Street Entry. The soulful, hippie-ish but edgy and acid-tongued rapper shows a funky side on a new single, "With a Smile," after dropping a wild EP online, "DWNR." He's working toward his full-length debut for Rhymesayers. (9 p.m. Sat., 7th Street Entry, sold out.) Riemenschneider


Robert Robinson may be diminished in size (he's lost more than 190 pounds) but not in voice or spirit. The Pavarotti of gospel is staging a fundraiser brunch for the He Is Risen Church, where he grew up in north Minneapolis. This special occasion demands a special guest — Robert's mother, Nellie Robinson, will join him. So will guitarist Cory Wong, pianist Sam Reeves, Robinson's siblings and others. (Brunch at 11 a.m. Sat., music at 12:15 p.m., Dakota, $50.) Bream


Bottomless Pit is a quartet that spotlights guitar man Joel Shapira, saxophonist Pete Whitman, versatile bassist Tom Lewis and drum legend Eric Kamau Gravatt, esteemed players all. Anyone for a dive into the vast abyss? (8:30 p.m. Sat., Black Dog, 308 E. Prince St., St. Paul, $10.) Tom Surowicz

The Minnesota Jazz Guitar Summit showcases 10 diverse acoustic and electric players — familiar veterans (avant-garde hero Dean Granros, Brazil nut Joan Griffith, Reuben Ristrom, Chris Olson, David Singley) and younger generation guitarists (Zacc Harris, David Feily, Geoff LeCrone, Jon Wood, flamenco specialist Ben Abrahamson), backed by bassist Chris Bates and drummer Mac Santiago. (4-7 p.m. Sun., Jazz Central Studios, 407 Central Av. SE., Mpls., $15, 612-729-1799.) Surowicz

Jazz guitarist and composer Paul Renz ruptured a bicep last summer, forcing him to undergo physical therapy and cancel a 10-city November tour. He returns to action with a new quartet featuring one welcome old face, excellent electric bassist Jonathan Thomas. (8 p.m. Sun., Aster Cafe, $10.) Surowicz

A terrific pianist, composer and globe-trotting bandleader, David Berkman has been a mainstay of the New York City jazz landscape since 1985. As prolific as he is talented, Berkman has released five albums since 2011, including a solo piano set, a live album co-starring Tom Harrell, a disc of duets with Scottish saxophonist Laura Macdonald and two sessions with the New York Standards Quartet, with yet another due in April, "Old Friends and New Friends." Next week he'll be working with three of Minnesota's finest jazz players, bassist Anthony Cox, saxophonist Brandon Wozniak and drummer J.T. Bates. Highly recommended. (8 p.m. Thu., Target Atrium at Orchestra Hall, $25.) Surowicz
