Jubba: This Somali vocalist was a member of the Waaberi Group, an elite band sponsored by Somalia’s government in the 1980s. On his own since his country fell into a chaos of coups and warlords in the early ’90s, Jubba remains a charmingly smooth dance-pop stylist. His lengthy residency as part of the ambitious Midimo project promoting Somali Muslim cultural awareness, sponsored by the Cedar Cultural Center and Augsburg College, culminates in this concert with special guests. (8 p.m. Fri., Cedar Cultural Center, $20-$25; free to Augsburg students and faculty.) Britt Robson

J.D. Souther: The singer-songwriter will have many stories to tell about his former roommate and songwriting partner, the late Glenn Frey of the Eagles. Souther, who plays a recurring role on TV’s “Nashville,” also wrote hits for Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor. Sarah Morris opens. (7 p.m. Fri. Dakota, $45-$52.) Jon Bream

Memory Lanes Block Party: Always the first and one of the best big block parties of the season, this year’s two-day parking lot bash has an equal mix of reliable favorites and buzzing newcomers. Saturday’s schedule is headed up by all-star boom-bappy rap trio Mixed Blood Majority (Crescent Moon, Joe Horton, Lazerbeak), ’70s-ish funk-pop duo Bones & Beeker, soulful piano groover Eric Mayson and women-fronted indie-rock bands Little Fevers, B.O.Y.F., Tiny Deaths and Murder Shoes. Sunday has a rootsier flavor with Kentucky’s Legendary Shack Shakers, Crankshaft & the Gear Grinders, the Toxenes, Red Daughters and indoor headliners Davina & the Vagabonds, plus Bob Mould’s favorite new power trio Fury Things. (3-10 p.m. Sat. & Sun., Memory Lanes, 2520 26th Av. S., Mpls., all ages, $5.) Chris Riemenschneider

Zac Brown Band: Like Luke Bryan, the Zac Brown Band graduated from opening act to arena attraction to stadium headliner very quickly. Supporting his band’s fourth studio album, “Jekyll & Hyde,” Brown, a man of many hats, is a bona fide country star, but his repertoire embraces pop, R&B, classic rock, classic country, blues, Jimmy Buffett, James Taylor — you name it. In short, ZBB is a bar band on steroids. Don’t be surprised if Zac and the boys throw in a Prince tribute. (7 p.m. Sat., Target Field, Mpls., $49-$109, livenation.com.) Jon Bream

Lord Huron and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats: Michigan-bred indie strummer Ben Schneider took a sizable leap with last year’s elegant Americana-baroque album “Strange Tails,” featuring the sweet hit “Fool’s Gold.” However, we would make Rateliff’s Denver soul-rock crew the headliners after their sweltering, packed Turf Club set last year and the mad love that the Current and other NPR-affiliated stations are giving to buoyant songs such as “S.O.B.” and “Howling at Nothing.” A tasty pairing nonetheless. (7:30 p.m. Tue., Northrop Auditorium, Mpls., $35.) Riemenschneider

Florence + the Machine: From the get-go, it was pretty obvious that Florence Welch had the voice and bravado to fill big venues. Now, after releasing its third album, her British group is playing arenas. Last year’s album “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful” reined in the bombast a bit. In fact, the single “Ship to Wreck” felt like it floated out of the folk-rock canon. Arty Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes opens. (7:30 p.m. Thu., Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, $28-$78, ticketmaster.com) Bream

The Chamber Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists: The ever-clever, ever-resourceful guitarist Robert Fripp, best remembered for his work with King Crimson, David Bowie and Talking Heads, has a new concept. Working in churches, the prog-rock hero leads a large ensemble of guitarists in a progressive program that mixes elements of rock, Middle Eastern, acoustic and classical music. (8 p.m. Thu. Westwood Lutheran Church, St. Louis Park, $35.) Bream

Fishbone: Los Angeles’ ska-infused Afropunk pioneers are still bonin’ behind potent frontman Angelo Moore and two other “Party at Ground Zero”-era members. (8 p.m. Tue., Skyway Theatre’s Studio B, Mpls., $18.) Riemenschneider

Pvris: The grinding dance-rock band from Lowell, Mass., went over big opening for Fall Out Boy at Xcel Center in March thanks to frontwoman Lyndsey Gunnulfsen’s dynamic persona. (7:45 p.m. Tue., Mill City Nights, 15 & older, $18-$22.) Riemenschneider

The Subhumans: U.K. anarcho-punk vet Dick Lucas is back out with several of his ’80s-era bandmates, known to younger audiences by Queens of the Stone Age’s cover of their “Wake Up Screaming.” (9 p.m. Wed., Triple Rock, $15.) Riemenschneider

B.O.B.: The Atlanta rapper of “Nothin’ on You” and “Airplanes” fame has dipped in popularity since his public proclamation that the earth was flat, but his performance in a small club should be lively. (9 p.m. Thu., Triple Rock, $20-$25.) Riemenschneider
