Rick Springfield
Sept 6 | Power-pop's multi-platinum "working class dog" dominated 1980s pop charts with hits like "Jessie's Girl" and "Don't Talk to Strangers" while dominating afternoon soaps as a General Hospital regular. After a decade-long break from rock 'n' roll, Springfield returned in the mid-1990s, and last year he released Songs For the End of the World. At 8 p.m. at the Joy Theater.

Scout Niblett
Thu. Sept. 5 | Emma Louise "Scout" Niblett's breakup record is no maudlin sob story. It's Up to Emma begins with a double-murder fantasy ("Gun") and drops a straight-faced take on TLC's "No Scrubs" into a skin-shedding, bare-bones guitar catharsis. Jayson Knox and Anaya open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.

Rough Seven album release
Fri. Sept. 6 | Ryan Scully used a new lineup to record Codebreaker (Upper Ninth), the follow-up to 2010 Rough Seven barnburner Give Up Your Dreams. It's an intimate, largely acoustic affair, close-miked and voices cracked. Heavy Lids opens at 10 p.m. at d.b.a.
