Patti Smith: The poet sings about wanderlust, art and discovery on her 2012 album, “Bangra,” and she remains a potent live performer with a band that can raise the roof or drop to a whisper as needed. With a four-decade history of pivotal albums to draw from, Smith is not to be missed,8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the Vic Theatre, 3145 N. Sheffield Ave., $37.50; jamusa.com.
