XENIA RUBINOS  “Magic Trix,” Rubinos’s 2013 debut, was meant for the omnivore: From one song to the next, the Brooklyn, N.Y., musician wailed like a wounded soul singer, channeled the ferocity of ’70s punk, and set feet in motion with dance tunes tinged with Latin pop. No wonder Man Man, a band of fellow musical misfits, enlisted her to open its current tour. (This is a solo show between dates opening for Man Man.)  Jan. 27, 9:30 p.m. Tickets: $10. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

LADY ANTEBELLUM  On November’s “Golden,” this country-pop trio (pictured) kept the hooks sharp and the harmonies tight. They come to town with rising country stars Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves, who might be a newly crowned Grammy queen by then. (She’s nominated for four awards, including best new artist, at Sunday’s ceremony.)  Jan. 31, 7 p.m. Tickets: $39.50-$59.50. TD Garden. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES Torch meets twang in the sleek but steely country rock Bains and his band conjured on their 2012 debut, “There Is a Bomb in Gilead.” It’s Southern rock for anyone who groused that Kings of Leon sold out. The album caught the attention of venerable indie-rock label Sub Pop Records, which recently signed the Alabama-bred band. Jan. 29, 9:30 p.m. Tickets: $9. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
