Shonen Knife
Sept 30 | After 33 years, Osaka, Japan, punkers Shonen Knife still haven't gotten old. In April, the female power trio issued its 20th album, Overdrive, another ripping set of hard riffs and harder-not-to-laugh lyrics ("Ramen Rock," "Fortune Cookie"). At 9 p.m. at the BEATnik.

Paul Collins Beat
Tue. Sept. 30 | Paul Collins was a power pop innovator in the 1970s and is a veteran of The Nerves, The Breakaways and The Beat.

Jimmy Cliff
Mon. Oct. 6 | Leave it to Jimmy Cliff to make screeds against war, poverty and widespread immorality sound so joyous. The 66-year-old reggae legend and only living recipient of Jamaica's Order of Merit is on some kind of run: He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010 and won a Grammy for 2012's Rebirth (Universal), which includes 13 songs that could be Jamaica's national anthems. At 8 p.m. Monday at House of Blues.
