Still weird and wonderful after 30 years of crafting quirky, free-form art-rock, the San Francisco ensemble has racked up a wide range of fans that hints at its madcap ingenuity, including Radiohead and Questlove. The band changed things up again in a fun way with last year's excellent album "Miracle-Level," the group's 19th LP but first sung entirely in singer/bassist Satomi Matsuzaki's native Japanese language. Lots of locals raved about the Turf Club date last summer when the band first came around to tout the record.

Peter Frampton

In 2019, the 1970s rock hero and underappreciated guitarist announced that he'd been diagnosed with inclusion body myositis, a degenerative muscular disease that prompted him to launch a farewell tour that was cut short by the pandemic. Despite the prognosis, Frampton is feeling OK and has come alive again on his Never Ever Say Never Tour of North America. A first-time nominee this year for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Grammy winner will revisit "Show Me the Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do" as well as classics associated with other artists.

Coming soon to your favorite hipster boutique or coffee shop sound system: This trio doubly known as the Los Angeles League of Musicians offers a cool blend of retro-but-innovative instrumental jams in the vein of Khruangbin, but with a different blend of influences.

Halfway to Halloween

Blumhouse Productions is bringing five of its horror hits back to theaters, supposedly to celebrate the fact that we're halfway to another Halloween. Their math is off — the end of April will be halfway to Halloween but we're currently only 5/12ths of the way there. But who cares when there's a chance to see Leigh Whannell's brilliant rethinking of the H.G. Wells classic, "The Invisible Man"? This version gets a genuinely frightening new element: Elisabeth Moss (spectacular) plays a woman who's trying to flee her marriage to a violent husband, whose invisibility makes it easier for him to mistreat her in monstrous and creative ways. Audiences missed "Invisible Man" in 2020, in the early months of the pandemic, but make sure you don't make that mistake again. The other four films on the program range from good ("Sinister," "The Purge") to decent ("Ouija: Origin of Evil") to wretched ("Insidious"). (Showtimes vary, Fri.-Tues., AMC Rosedale and AMC Coon Rapids, $8,
