Brad Paisley [$30–$175/7:30]

For a guy who’s enjoyed such a steady country music career, Brad Paisley has a curiously high number of novelty hits for someone who’s not Weird Al, from odes to intoxication (“Alcohol”) to ragging on superstars (“Celebrity”) to winking songs about loveadjacent feelings (“I’m Gonna Miss Her,” “Ticks”). They haven’t always worked out well—see 2013’s disastrous “Accidental Racist”—but for the most part, Paisley comes off as an affable guy with a decent sense of humor and some pretty impressive guitar chops. You could do worse in the realm of arena-size country shows. Kane Brown and Tyminski open. —Allison Hussey

thirteen songs are packed with catchy lyrics, dazzling guitar solos, and bold, foot-tapping beats, sending the message that The Woggles aren’t backing down any time soon. —Lena Geller MOTORCO: The Steel Wheels, Alan Barnosky; 8 p.m., $15–$23. NASH STREET TAVERN: The Yardarm; 8 p.m., free. POUR HOUSE: Runaway Cab, Roar the Engines; 8 p.m., $10. POUR HOUSE

Runaway Cab [$10/9 P.M.] This is a special occasion for Raleigh’s Runaway Cab. This hometown celebration marks twenty years that the band has been fusing alt-rock edginess and classic-rock melodic sensibilities. There have been a few personnel changes along the way, as you’ll find with any band that’s been around for that long, but Runaway Cab’s mission remains the same. For this event, the current members of the group will be joined on some songs by cofounders Drew Parkinson and Chad Hough. —Jim Allen POYNER PLACE: Big Chief; 6 p.m. ROCK HARBOR GRILL: Bruce Clark Trio; 9 p.m.-midnite, free. WALL OF SOUND MUSIC CENTER: Mia Shelton; 8:30 p.m., $10.


Jenny Besetzt, Bound [$10/8 P.M.] Greensboro’s Jenny Besezt established itself as a local favorite some time ago, finding a compelling balance of atmospheric guitars, drifting vocals and a driving postpunk low end. It forms an able complement to Washington, D.C.’s Bound, which thrives in the intersections of shoegaze and doom, lending the former genre’s latticework of bright tones and textures to the latter’s deliberate pacing and seismic dynamics. Dreamless, the dark post-punk duo of The Nein’s Finn Cohen and Birds of Avalon’s David Mueller, opens. —Bryan C. Reed
