It might as well be billed as the Adam Levine Band, but the tickets still say Maroon 5 even though NBC's "The Voice" has made the frontman a household name. Songs from last year's album "V" — the L.A. band's fifth — will be the focus in concert, including the recent hits "Animals" and "Maps," but also expect such faves as "Moves Like Jagger" and "Harder to Breathe." Opening are Magic!, the Canadians behind last year's reggae-spiked hit "Rude," and Rozzi Crane, a California singer-songwriter who records for Levine's 222 Records. (7:30 p.m. Mon., Xcel Energy Center, $29-$125.) Bream


Call it the South by Southwest Reverse Effect: Americana stalwart Carrie Rodriguez and her bandmate/beau Luke Jacobs are fleeing her hometown of Austin, Texas, this week to escape the bloated music industry conference and play a show in his old hometown instead. The singer/fiddler and the Romantica guitarist have a couple of new releases to tout, including their debut as a duo, "Live at the Cactus," and Jacobs' first solo album, "Velvet After Feel," a coolly laid-back, twanged-up affair. Rodriguez is also featured on Asleep at the Wheel's latest Bob Wills tribute album, a sign of her pure Texas pedigree. (7 p.m. Fri., Dakota Jazz Club, $25.) Chris Riemenschneider

Another Austinite skipping out on SXSW: Possessed by Paul James is the perfomance moniker of folk/bluegrass master Konrad Wert, a Mennonite-raised one-man band who blends fiddle, banjo and foot-stomping into a fervent stage show. He made New York Times critic Jon Caramanica's best concerts of 2014 list and is a personal favorite of Deep Blues Fest founder Chris Johnson, who's bringing him in to play his intimate barbecue joint in Bayport. (8 p.m. Fri., Bayport BBQ, $15.) Riemenschneider

In honor of Aretha Franklin's 73rd birthday next week, a parade of powerful Twin Cities singers will pay R.E.S.P.E.C.T. to the queen of soul. The lineup includes Kathleen Johnson and the mother-daughter combos of Jamecia and Paris Bennett and Ginger and Ashley Commodore. The all-star backup band will feature Yohannes Tona, Brian Ziemniak, Troy Norton and Brian Kendrick. (9:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., Bunkers, $10. ) Jon Bream

They don't make stars like Bernadette Peters anymore. She can sing, dance and act with equal authority. She's best known as a Tony-winning Broadway star, regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Stephen Sondheim. Having seen her on Broadway in "A Little Night Music," I can tell you no one sings "Send in the Clowns" like Peters. But she has personality as well as pipes— she's also appeared in more than 30 movies, including "The Jerk," "Silent Movie" and "Pennies From Heaven," for which she won a Golden Globe. (7:30 p.m. Sat., Ordway Music Theater, $33-$204.) Bream

Seth Avett didn't go looking for a new musical partner besides his brother Scott, but he did find someone very suitable for his latest project: Jessica Lea Mayfield, with whom he put together a tribute album to late indie-folk cult hero Elliott Smith. The Avett Brothers co-leader and the Ohio twang-rock singer capture the bittersweet tones and lush harmonies of Smith's work throughout the inspired but sometimes too perky collection, titled "Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith." They're halfway through a 13-city tour. (7:30 p.m. Sun., Fitzgerald Theater, $42.50-$47.50.) Riemenschneider

The Decemberists might provide the best test yet for the improved acoustics at the newly refined Northrop Auditorium. The mythology-tinged Oregon folk-rock heroes' concerts can go from an Irish-flavored acoustic ballad to an epic rocker at the drop of a Stonehenge prop. They took a decidedly straightforward approach to their latest album, "What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World," coming off a four-year hiatus in which frontman Colin Meloy wrote children's books and focused on being a dad. We're only the second date on their U.S. tour. Poppy Toronto openers Alvvays will be coming off a busy, buzzing SXSW run. (7:30 p.m. Tue., Northrop Auditorium, sold out.) Riemenschneider

A regular on the Ozzfest tours of the late '90s — one perk to having Sharon Osbourne for a manager then — Coal Chamber came back from a decade-long hiatus in 2011 and just issued its first new album in 13 years, "Rivals." The L.A. alt-metal vets have assembled an impressive roster for their tour, including "Hey Man, Nice Shot" hitmakers Filter and the Twin Cities' own harrowing industrial-thrash American Head Charge, whose new album, "Tango Umbrella," is coming soon via Napalm Records. Combichrist and Saint Ridley also perform. (7 p.m. Mon., First Avenue, $27-$30.) Riemenschneider

Benjamin Booker blasted his way through his Twin Cities debut last October at the Turf Club with wild abandon — so wild, the otherwise impressive set was marred a bit by broken equipment. When they weren't going full-steam-ahead as they did in the hit "Violent Shiver," the soulfully voiced New Orleans garage-rocker and his scrappy band also showed off an equally mean side as a slower, bluesier vehicle. They admirably bottled their live energy on "Live at Third Man Records." Jack White sidewoman and former Black Belles singer Olivia Jean opens. (8:30 p.m. Thu., First Avenue, $15.) Riemenschneider


After a successful career as a record producer ("Alfie," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head"), Steve Tyrell decided to pursue a career as a singer of standards. Performing "The Way You Look Tonight" in the 1991 movie "Father of the Bride" launched his vocal career, which has taken him through collections of standards, Disney tunes and Sammy Cahn songs. On this year's album "That Lovin' Feeling," Tyrell visits Brill Building pop, duetting with the likes of Bill Medley, Judith Hill and Neil Sedaka. Things get a little loungey at times, but Tyrell pulls off some of these pop nuggets with style, especially "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" and "Hound Dog," recast as a bluesy/jazzy groove tune with Chuck Leavell on organ. (7 & 9 p.m. Mon.-Tue., Dakota, $30-$42.) Bream

New Orleans piano patriarch Ellis Marsalis makes his first Twin Cities appearance in 24 years, paired with the third of his four jazz-star sons. Delfeayo Marsalis enlisted his dad as sideman for last fall's release "The Last Southern Gentlemen," a mellow album of standards that places his lyrical trombone front and center. The elder Marsalis, who turned 80 in November, will play only the first night of this two-night gig — he has a previous engagement back home — but his substitute is no slouch: soulful Crescent City keyboardist/singer Davell Crawford. (7 & 9 p.m. Wed.-Thu., Dakota Jazz Club, $30-$50.) Tim Campbell


The Liquid Music series has specialized in providing broad canvases to smart, genre-pooling artists. Next up is Helado Negro (real name Roberto Carlos Lange), who blends the tropical lilt of his parents' Ecuador and his South Floridian childhood with the classical, folk-pop and electronica strains of his multifaceted community of Brooklyn artists. "Island Universe Story" will feature a stellar cast of guest artists including Stereolab singer Laetitia Sadier, Wilco keyboardist Mikael Jorgenson, David Byrne percussionist Jason Trammell, Atlanta singer/songwriter Adron and a double string quartet. It will be a world premiere performance in the spanking new Ordway Concert Hall. (8 p.m. Sat., Ordway Center, $15.) Britt Robson


The Minnesota Orchestra inaugurates a new tradition, spotlighting one great American musical each year. The first effort is Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel," one of the finest scores from the team, featuring "If I Loved You," "June Is Bustin' Out All Over," "Soliloquy" and "You'll Never Walk Alone." Conducted by Sarah Hicks, staged by Robert Neu and choreographed by Penelope Freeh, this costumed semi-staging features some of the finest musical comedy performers in the Cities: Gabriel Preisser as Billy Bigelow, Sarah Lawrence as Julie Jordan, plus Kersten Rodau, Paul R. Coate, Kathleen Humphrey, Gary Briggle and Vera Mariner. (11 a.m. Thu., 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., Orchestra Hall, $29-$64, 612-371-5656, William Randall Beard

Schubert Club hosts the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in an evening of German love songs to celebrate the new Ordway Concert Hall. A vocal quartet and two pianists will perform Brahms' "Liebeslieder Waltzer," one of the most romantic pieces of music in existence. There are also songs for voice and piano by Schubert and Wolf, the "Spanische Liebeslieder" by Schumann, and song cycles by Alban Berg and fellow 20th-century composer Viktor Ullmann. (7:30 p.m. Fri., Ordway, $26-$41, 651-292-3268, Beard
