LAURA MARLING The British singer-songwriter has made a series of devastatingly great records, the most recent of which is “Once I Was an Eagle.” A superb songwriter gifted with a lovely voice and a great peforming style that channels her nerves into comic banter, Marling should be on the radar of all of folk-pop. Sept. 3, 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $24. Somerville Theatre. www.ticketmaster.com. 800-745-3000.
GLENN TILBROOK One of the main men in Squeeze, Tilbrook is hitting the road for a solo acoustic tour. Expect a mix of stripped-down Squeeze classics like “Tempted,” “Black Coffee in Bed,” and “Hourglass,” interspersed with Tilbrook’s top notch solo material. Sept. 5, 8 p.m. Tickets: $30. Brighton Music Hall. www.ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000.
FALL OUT BOY Their songs know what you did in the dark and the cheerfully rocking quartet (above) want you to come do it with them in Lowell. The reunited gang put on a lively show at the House of Blues earlier this year in service of their solid new album “Save Rock N Roll” and now they’re upping the capacity and bringing their exclamatory buddies Panic! At the Disco along for the ride. Sept. 6, 7 p.m. Tickets: $37.50. Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell. 978-934-5738, www.tsongascenter.com
