Best Coast: With “The Only Place,” Bethany Cosentino’s California band has made a quintessential summer album, brimming with sunny guitar-pop melodies shaded by melancholy, 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Vic Theatre, 3145 N. Sheffield Ave., $19; jamusa.com.

Aesop Rock: With drums rolling and rumbling underneath him, the MC strings together words with bewildering dexterity on “Skelethon” (Rhymesayers), the latest peak in a decade-long career, 9 p.m. Saturday at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., $18; metrochicago.com.
