Seinabo Sey

8:30 p.m. • Triple Rock • 18-plus • $10

While comparisons to fellow Swedish indie-pop stars Robyn and Lykke Li might be inevitable, Sey has a more soulful bent, stemming from her teenage years belting Aretha and Chaka tunes in a Stockholm music school. The 24-year-old soul-pop singer released her debut EP “For Madeleine” (dedicated to her mother) last fall with major-label backing. The daughter of late Gambian musician Mawdo Sey scored her biggest hit to date when Norwegian DJ-producer Kygo remixed her strings-laced single, “Younger.” Gavin James opens. Michael Rietmulder

 

Celebration of Tom Hallett

9 p.m. • Turf Club • $6

Rock critics aren’t supposed to call musicians friends, but next week’s Celebration of Tom Hallett proves that the former Pulse of the Twin Cities columnist — who died last summer of complications from diabetes — earned ample respect from local rockers with his writings and pure fandom. The local garage-rock acts paying tribute to him include Ol’ Yeller, St. Dominic’s Trio, Frances Gumm, Howlin’ Andy Hound & the Bloodshot, Martin Devaney, Peal, Al Grande and Rob Rule’s bands Stereo Rules and the Mammy Nuns.
