Haley Bonar

7:30 p.m. • Ordway Concert Hall • $20-$25

Haley Bonar has been granted the enviable task of being the first Twin Cities rock act to perform in St. Paul’s shiny, new, $42 million concert hall, whose acoustics earned high praise from the New York Times last weekend. The dramatically voiced indie-rock tunesmith is taking full advantage of the fancy new digs, promising a special unplugged set with the Laurel Strings Quartet and backup singers Janey Winterbauer, Wendy Lewis and Kate Murray. They should add a lovely bend to the sometimes darker, frayed songs from last year’s album “Last War,” also the subject of national accolades. Actual Wolf opens. Chris Riemenschneider


Heart and Joan Jett

7:30 p.m. • Verizon Wireless Center, Mankato • $37.50-$87.50

It’s a double bill made in a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame boardroom. Heart and Jett both started rocking in the 1970s — and are still recording albums. The Wilson sisters fashioned Heart as their own version of Led Zeppelin before finding their own voices on such hits as “Crazy on You” and “Alone.” Jett started with the Runaways before finding fame on her own with “Bad Reputation” and “I Love Rock and Roll.” Heart was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2013, and Jett will be honored this year.
