Feist: She’s hit commercial paydirt with lighter fare such as “Mushaboom” and “1234,” but the singer-songwriter shows some darker, more somber edges on her latest album, “Metals,” 8 p.m. Friday at the Riviera, 4746 N. Racine, $34; etix.com.

Blind Boys of Alabama: In a career spanning a remarkable 70 years, the venerable vocal group has kept the gospel flame lit while expanding its parameters with heaven-sent harmonies, 9 p.m. Saturday at FitzGeralds, 6615 Roosevelt Rd., Berwyn, $35; fitzgeraldsnightclub.com.
