Arcade Fire with Wolf Parade
Tue. Sept. 26 | In contrast to Arcade Fire's bombastic career track, fraternal Montreal outfit Wolf Parade — the rousing double helix of Springsteenish Dan Boeckner and the eccentric Spencer Krug — developed more of a John Lennon/Paul McCartney divide with each album after 2005's Funeral-matching Apologies to the Queen Mary. Wolf Parade ends a seven-year LP hiatus with October's Cry Cry Cry (Sub Pop). At 7:30 p.m. at UNO Lakefront Arena.

Mac DeMarco
Wed. Sept. 27 | Venerable U.K. music magazine NME dubbed Mac DeMarco "cult leader for a new generation of slackers," but even that may be overselling the puppyish guitar-pop star's ambitions. On the other hand, he's managed five straight offhand revelations (May's Captured Tracks release This Old Dog is the latest) without breaking a pant. At 8 p.m. at Orpheum Theater.

Thu. Sept. 28 | Back with a spare arrangement and moody synth riff, 2017 super hit "Love Galore" from SZA's acclaimed Ctrl fills a he said, she said love song with surprising melodic twists and blunt storytelling. The single adds to an emotionally complex, sonically diverse debut album from the rising R&B star. Ravyn Lenae opens at 8 p.m. at House of Blues.
