Son Volt
Wed. March 8 | Bisected from the remains of Uncle Tupelo, Wilco flew to outer space while Son Volt dug into the dirt. The band's eighth album, February's Notes of Blue, conjures lean, warm rock 'n' roll and finger-picked blues bolstered by Jay Farrar's weight-of-the-world voice. Jonny Iron opens at 8 p.m. at The Parish at House of Blues.

Xenia Rubinos
Wed. March 8 | For those who missed it in September, Xenia Rubinos gives this encore performance of her genre-splicing 2016 LP Black Terry Cat (Anti-), an electrifying mashup of spoken-word dexterity ("Black Stars") and hip-swiveling R&B ("Lonely Lover"). Baron Ahmon opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Sacred Music Festival
Sat. March 11 | There's a peace walk and Kelly Osbourne is one of the emcees for the festival's diverse array of spiritually inspired music, including African drumming, Japanese taiko drumming, Jewish cantorial singing, reggae, Tibetan chanting, Mardi Gras Indian music and more. At the New Orleans Healing Center.

Sun. March 12 | Florida bands don't get less Floridian than Tampa's Merchandise. A Corpse Wired for Sound, its heady second record for U.K. powerhouse 4AD, forgoes sunshine in favor of New Wave tears and post-punk fears. Chain of Flowers, Omni and Boyish Charm open at 9 p.m. at Siberia.
