THE MEN On “Tomorrow’s Hits,” their new album coming out on Tuesday, these New York boys clear out some of the sonic cobwebs and distortion of their earlier work. They end up with a hard-charging strain of 1970s rock that’s somewhere between the psychedelic onslaught of the 13th Floor Elevators and the rolling thunder of Bob Dylan’s work with the Band. Yes, it’s that good. March 2, 9:30 p.m. Tickets: $12, $10 in advance. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

ROBIN THICKE Now that we can collectively go a day or two without hearing “Blurred Lines,” his ubiquitous hit from last summer, Thicke is finally touring behind it. He comes to town facing some controversy: A student group at Boston University has organized a petition urging administrators to cancel the show on grounds that “Blurred Lines” is sexist and “celebrates having sex with women against their will.” At press time, the show was still on. March 4, 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $27.50-$63. Agganis Arena. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

“THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF HARRY BELAFONTE: A TRIBUTE CONCERT” Under the direction of professor Larry Watson, Berklee College of Music faculty and students will salute one of American music’s true pioneers and humanitarians. Belafonte will be present and receive an honorary doctorate of music from Berklee president Roger H. Brown. March 6, 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $12, $8 in advance. Berklee Performance Center. 617 747-2261, www.berkleebpc.com
