Kings Go Forth: If it’s horn-fueled soul you want with the edges left intact, this multi-cultural big band from Milwaukee is the real deal. Their 2010 album, “The Outsiders are Back” (Luaka Bop), is a blast, and their live show is even better, 9 p.m. Friday at Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee Av., $12; ticketfly.com

Sergent Garcia: Part of the annual World Music Festival that takes over Chicago every September, this French punk veteran dives into Caribbean and Spanish music with equal flair, 5 p.m. Sunday at Spirit of Music Garden in Grant Park, free; explorechicago.org.

Lindsey Buckingham: Though best known for his role in Fleetwood Mac’s most commercially potent albums, the singer-guitarist is revered by his most ardent fans for his solo albums, which blend melody, tart lyrics and adventurous production. His latest, “Seeds We Sow” (Eagle Rock Entertainment), is no exception, 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Vic, 3145 N. Sheffield, $54; etix.com.
