Steven Tyler

XENIA RUBINOS This dependably vital, consistently inventive singer and rapper continues to twist her Afro-Caribbean cultural and musical roots into unexpected and instantly appealing new branches, the likes of which can be heard on her powerful new album, “Black Cat.” Aug. 31, 9 p.m. $12, advance $10. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

KANYE WEST The rapper, producer, media personality, fashion designer, and all-around auteur plants himself in the Garden for an evening, with results certainly to be memorable. Officially this is sold out; realistically, watch for last-minute ticket releases. Sept. 3,
8 p.m. TD Garden. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

THALIA ZEDEK BAND A familiar face, vital voice, and visceral presence in the US indie-rock underground for as long as most of us can remember, Zedek and her excellent working band celebrate the release of their latest creation, the life-affirming “Eve.” Sept. 1, 9:30 p.m. $10. Great Scott. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

STEVEN TYLER WITH THE LOVING MARY BAND Aerosmith’s howler went Nashville on his recently released, wholly respectable solo album, “We’re All Somebody From Somewhere”; now, he pays a visit with the same crack backing combo that accompanied him on the CMA Fest telecast in June. Sept. 4,
8 p.m. $59.95-$149.95. Citi Wang Theatre. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
