Basilica Block Party: One of the most celebrated songwriters of the moment, Alabama twang-rocker Jason Isbell, and one of the most-loved-and-hated alt-rock bands of the ’90s, Cake, earned the top slots at this year’s Basilica Block Party. The Isbell-led Friday lineup also includes Prince’s well-revived former band the Revolution, soul-pop groovers Fitz & the Tantrums, Aussie strummers the John Butler Trio, plus Delta Rae and locals Now, Now, Tabah, Lady Lark and more. Saturday’s Cake-eating menu also offers fellow ‘90s throwbacks Third Eye Blind, Michigan pop-rocker Borns, Andy Grammer, Judah & the Lion, Reina del Cid, the Shackletons and others. (5 p.m. Fri. & Sat., Basilica of St. Mary, $70-$125,

Eaux Claires Fest: Everyone in Bon Iver land is talking about the lineup at Justin Vernon’s fourth annual woodlands camp-out this year. Or rather, they’re talking about the lack of a lineup. At press time, the Wisconsin indie-rock hero and his crew hadn’t yet wavered in their pledge to keep the schedule and names under wraps. Rumored participants include the National, Patti Smith, Sufjan Stevens, Pussy Riot, Sharon Van Etten, Ho9909 and fest regulars such as Phil Cook, Francis & the Lights and Marijuana Deathsquads. But can’t say for sure. (Noon-midnight Fri. & Sat., Foster Farms, 3443 Crescent Av. in Eau Claire, Wis., $109/day, $199/two-day, 

Trampled by Turtles: Maybe the most Minnesotan rock show of summer, the newly revived, continually beloved acoustic sextet is taking over the state’s best outdoor venue once again with another stellar lineup of homegrown favorites, including Charlie Parr, Bad Bad Hats, the Last Revel, Superior Siren and the Teague Alexy Band. (4 p.m. Sat., Bayfront Festival Park, Duluth, $40, free for kids 12 & under,

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill: Even though they finally released their long overdue duet album last fall, the first couple of country music hasn’t changed its set list much since last August when they performed two triumphant shows at Xcel Energy Center. They’re switching venues, but crossing the river won’t alter the chemistry between the hunky, playful McGraw and the golden-voiced Hill, who hasn’t issued a solo album of new material since 2001. Devin Dawson opens. (7:30 p.m. Sat. Target Center, Mpls., $69.50 - $119.50,

Ray Wylie Hubbard: One of the all-time great Texas songwriters, he’s a terrific storyteller in both conversation and song. Although best known for penning the Jerry Jeff Walker hit “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” the 71-year-old has been regularly cranking out Americana gems. With his weathered and knowing voice, he spins compelling tales of God, the devil and the Twin Cities’ own blues legends Koerner, Ray & Glover on 2017’s overlooked album “Tell The Devil That I’m Getting There As Fast As I Can,” which features guests Lucinda Williams, Eric Church and Patty Griffin. (7 p.m. Sun. Dakota, Mpls., sold out)

Regina Marie Williams and Greta Oglesby: They are two of the Twin Cities’ finest actresses who sing. Each has the vocal chops and stage panache to succeed as a singer, but they have chosen the slightly more predictable vehicle of theater. Williams has showcased her voice, especially her Nina Simone repertoire, in clubs from time to time, but this is a rare club appearance for Oglesby, a formidable but underappreciated soul-gospel voice. The duo is calling their joint show Diva To Diva, with pianist Sanford Moore leading the band. (7 p.m. Mon. Dakota, $25)

Glassjaw & Quicksand: Two bands that fell nicely between the cracks of grunge, punk and metal in the early-‘90s, each released their first albums in over a decade last year and sound ready to roar again. (6:30 p.m. Mon., Varsity Theater, $30.)

Davell Crawford & Dirty Dozen Brass Band: Two of New Orleans’ most revered music institutions, soulful piano man Crawford and second-line brass band revivalists DDBB are pairing up for what should be an extra-funky, two-night, four-set stand at one of their favorite places to beat the Louisiana heat this time of the year. (7 & 9 p.m. Tue. & Wed., the Dakota, $30-$40.)

Boz Scaggs: On July 27, the veteran blue-eyed soul man will deliver his third album in five years. “Out of the Blues” is a look at his first love, the blues, including covers of songs by his two major influences, Bobby (Blue) Bland and Jimmy Reed. Scaggs invited guitarists Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II to join him on the project for some “Texas flavor.” Scaggs has been previewing the album on tour, as well as playing such 1970s hits as “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle” and his definitive blues piece, “Somebody Loan Me a Dime.” (7:30 p.m. Tue. State Theatre, $56.50-$65 )

St. Paul and the Broken Bones: On his first two albums, Paul Janeway sounded like a graduate of the Otis Redding School of Southern Soul Singing. In concert, he seems to have gone to school on James Brown. Janeway and his Alabama band are dropping their third full length, “Young Sick Camellia,” in September. Produced by Jack Splash (Solange, Mayer Hawthorne, Alicia Keys), it features the new single “Apollo,” a slice of space-age soul certain to send Janeway soaring in concert. (7:30 p.m. Wed. Minnesota Zoo, $39-$51.50,

Panic! at the Disco: Like fellow Las Vegas rock showman Brandon Flowers of the Killers, Brandon Urie and his hi-fi, high-adrenaline band have endured flash-in-the-pan status and rather significant lineup changes to remain a top draw on the road and on the radio. Their latest album, “Pray for the Wicked,” is a bit melodramatic but fun, as indicated by the hit single “Say Amen (Saturday Night).” (7 p.m. Wed., Target Center, $30-$70.)

Cadott’s Rock Fest: East-Central Wisconsin’s long-running, ever-rowdy headbanger campout has another action-packed lineup next week with top names including Incubus, Rise Against and Seether (Thu.), Godsmack, Halestorm, Bush and Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider (Fri.) and Disturbed, A Day to Remember, Black Label Society, Underoath and Sevendust (Sat.). There’s also an old-school pre-party for three-day ticketholders with Kiss’ Ace Frehley, Skid Row and Autograph (Wed.). (24447 Highway S. in Cadott, Wis., $89/day, $129/three-day,

Wayne Hancock & Scott Biram: Two kindred spirits from different ends of the Texas twang spectrum, the wild-eyed country rocker Biram and Hank Williams-echoing songwriting great Hancock are out together again touting recent albums for Bloodshot Records. (9 p.m. Wed., Ballentine Uptown VFW Hall, $16-$19.)
