Michael Kiwanuka: Since canceling a sold-out Cedar show in November due to tonsillitis, the British soul-rocker of “Home Again” fame has earned a new spat of attention after his moody epic “Cold Little Heart” was used as the theme song for the HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies.” The 10-minute version of the tune kicked off his Danger Mouse-produced 2016 album, “Love & Hate,” an alluring, dramatic collection that should translate into a powerful concert. (8 p.m. Fri., First Avenue, sold out.)

Revival Fest: The jammy Memorial Day weekend camp-out tradition at Harmony Park carries on with an eclectic three-day lineup including Galactic, Yonder Mountain String Band, Antibalas, the New Orleans Suspects and Minnesota favorites the Big Wu, Useful Jenkins, Black Market Brass, Charlie Parr and many more. (2 p.m. Fri.-Sun., Harmony Park in Geneva, Minn., $155, RevivalFestMN.com.)

Everclear & Fastball: Two ’90s alt-rock bands that deserve better than one-hit-wonder status, Everclear of “Santa Monica” fame is marking its 20th anniversary with frontman Art Alexakis for its only heyday member while Fastballs’ three members have stuck closely together since their 1998 hit “The Way.” The Texas trio just dropped a strong new album, “Step Into Light,” which emphasizes their classic Anglophile-meets-Angeleno pop hooks. Vertical Horizon also performs. (8 p.m. Fri., Treasure Island Casino, Red Wing, $27-$47.)

Ho99o9: This truly hard to describe — and maybe to stomach — New Jersey-reared hardcore rap/rock band known verbally as “Horror” is like an unholy cross between Slipknot, Death Grips and Ice-T’s Body Count with its wild, neon-lit, costumed live shows and provocative lyrics. (9 p.m. Fri., Triple Rock, $10-$12.)

Fathom Lane: After pairing up with co-vocalist Ashleigh Still in 2013 and issuing his band’s self-titled LP, Minneapolis singer/songwriter Michael Ferrier offers the follow-up “Asilomar,” named after a California beach where he had an epiphany and boasting more hazy guitar pop and moody, gray-day folk-rock of the Communist Daughter and Iron & Wine variety. It also includes two coolly reinvented covers from Tom Petty and John Denver. Tabah and Monica LaPlante open. (9 p.m. Fri., Turf Club, $10-$12.)

Memory Lanes Block Party: Who knew a party at a bowling alley could be this cool and diverse? Memory Lanes’ ninth annual bash in its sizable parking lot kicks off Saturday with Chicago’s high-energy retro soul-rockers JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound for a headliner along with local hip-hop/R&B experimentalists the Crunchy Kids and Sarah White, soul-pop singer Lady Lark, promising rock newcomers P•PL and Colin Campbell & the Shackletons and more. Bombastic scene vets Dillinger Four and the Birthday Suits headline Sunday’s punky bill with young buzzers Tony Peachka and Monica LaPlante, plus some rootsy/worldly grooves by Black Market Brass, Malamanya and Crankshaft. (3-10 p.m. Sat. & Sun., Memory Lanes, 2520 26th Av. S., Mpls., all ages, $5 at gate.)

George Clinton & P-Funk: A great excuse to trek to one of our state’s best outdoor venues, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and his large, circuslike crew return to Minnesota just a month and a half after blasting through funk classics like “Flashlight” and “Atomic Dog” at Paisley Park for the Prince Celebration. (7 p.m. Sun., Vetter Stone Amphitheater in Mankato, $33-$73.)

Regina Marie Williams: Her performances in “Nina Simone: Four Women,” a musical drama created for her, have enjoyed two sold-out runs at the Park Square Theatre in St. Paul. Now Williams, one of the Twin Cities’ stellar singer/actors, leaves the drama behind and just offers Simone songs, including “Feelin’ Good” and “Mississippi Goddam.” Of course, there will be plenty of drama, emotion and fireworks in the songs themselves. (7 p.m. Sun. Dakota, $17-$22, dakotacooks.com)

Felix Cavaliere: The keyboardist/singer was in Joey Dee & the Starlighters (“Peppermint Twist”) but he’s best remembered for his years with Rock Hall of Famers the Rascals. He was the voice of “It’s a Beautiful Morning,” “People Got To Be Free” and four other of their biggest hits. Plus, he’s an inveterate soul man who puts his stamp on classics from his era including “In the Midnight Hour” and “Knock on Wood.” (7 & 9 p.m. Mon. Dakota, $35-$60.)

The Steeles: Minnesota’s first family of soul-gospel have sung everywhere from Carnegie Hall to First Avenue. You don’t know what’s on the set list when J.D., Fred, Jearlyn, Jevetta and Billy Steele get together but you know it will be spirited. (7 p.m. Tue. Dakota, $30.)

Girlpool: After gaining a buzz at SXSW and other avenues in 2015 with a scrappy lo-fi folk-punk sound, the Los Angeles duo of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker signed with Anti Records and added a rhythm section but are still a decidedly acquired taste, with oddly tuned harmonies and quirky tunes á la the Moldy Peaches. (8 p.m. Wed., First Avenue, $18.)

Carl Palmer: With the deaths last year of both Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, drummer Palmer is carrying on the legacy of Emerson, Lake & Palmer with his own prog trio, ELP Legacy. (7 p.m. Thu. Dakota, $35-$55.)

Anaïs Mitchell: Last seen in town performing with fellow songwriting mavens Patty Griffin and Sara Watkins, this Vermont-bred folkie will be seen next month all over the grounds of the Eaux Claires Music Festival, where curator Justin Vernon and his team picked her to be an artist-in-residence. Vernon and Griffin are just some of many tunesmiths to sing her praises over the years, also including Ani DiFranco, whose Righteous Babe Records issued her early albums, including “Hadestown,” a fantastical 2010 “folk opera.” Here’s a chance to catch Mitchell’s own regular headlining set. (8 p.m. Thu., Turf Club, 1601 University Av. W., St. Paul, $15-$17, eTix.com.)

Marian Hill: The Philadelphian girl/boy electropop duo jumps from the Entry to a sold-out main-room show after its jaggedly infectious single “Down” became a ubiquitous sleeper hit, thanks in large part to its use in an Apple iPad commercial. (8 p.m. Thu., First Avenue, sold out.)
