REDBIRD  The members of this trio — Kris Delmhorst, Jeffrey Foucault (above), and Peter Mulvey — are marquee singer-songwriters in their own right. Together as Redbird, their recordings have a loose, ramshackle charm as they careen through jazz, blues, country, and parlour songs. Their live performances are particularly engaging, which explains this three-night stand. Aug. 13-15, 8 p.m. Tickets: $35. Club Passim. 617-492-7679, www.clubpassim.com

LAURA JANE GRACE  Billed as “Laura Jane Grace Sings the ‘Transgender Dysphoria Blues,’ ” the lead singer of the pop-punk band Against Me! is on her first solo tour since coming out as transgender last year. Grace will give a sneak preview of the new Against Me! album by performing acoustic renditions of the songs. Aug. 11, 9 p.m. Tickets: $12. Brighton Music Hall. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
