Milo Greene

8:30 p.m. • Fine Line • 18-plus • $16-$30

Last month, cinematic pop collective Milo Greene released an excellent follow-up to its 2012 self-titled debut album. “Control” boasts the artistic evolution necessary for a band looking to distinguish itself in a crowded zeitgeist of Los Angeles indie pop. Each member of MG writes separately then contributes their strongest songs to the project, a process that yielded the quintet a solid and varied collection of 13 songs. “Control” is marked by a unified, up-tempo, rhythm-driven sound, a striking departure from the folk influence that characterized MG’s first release. Duluth’s Toby Thomas Churchill opens. Alex Nelson

 

Pedrito Martinez

7 & 9 p.m. • Dakota Jazz Club • $17-$27

Once a child prodigy in Havana, Cuban percussionist and singer Martinez has been a smash hit in Manhattan for nearly two decades, working with jazz stars (Wynton Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Cassandra Wilson), rock stars (Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Sting) and Latin luminaries (Eddie Palmieri, Paquito d’Rivera). He was a founding member of the high-energy band Yerba Buena and his own quartet’s debut album was Grammy-nominated. The group features players from Venezuela, Cuba and Peru. Tom Surowicz
