BRAIDS There likely was no song issued in 2015 that was more intimate or painful than "Miniskirt," an unflinching account of abuse, resilience, and healing on "Deep in the Iris," the third LP from a Canadian trio best known for dizzy, dreamy electropop. The story continues with the title track to the band's new EP, "Companion." May 31, 9 p.m. $12. Great Scott. 800-745-3000.

BRIAN CARPENTER AND THE CONFESSIONS Versatile local singer, songwriter, arranger, and bandleader Carpenter rallies his Confessions for an amble through songs from their gorgeously rustic, moody 2015 LP, "The Far End of the World." Field Day, a sharp alt-rock foursome (which includes current and former Globe employees), plays in support. June 1, 9 p.m. $10, advance $8. Great Scott. 800-745-3000.

VENOM INC. Guitarist Jeff "Mantas" Dunn and drummer Tony "Abaddon" Bray were two-thirds of Venom, the British metal outfit whose second LP, "Black Metal," lent its name to an entire genre. They're reclaiming their dark legacy now alongside bassist/vocalist Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan, Venom frontman from 1988 to 1992. June 2, 8 p.m. $25, advance $20. ONCE Lounge & Ballroom, Somerville. 617-285-0167,

BEYONCÉ We'd barely stopped vibrating from Queen Bey's stark, enigmatic "Formation" when she rocked the world with her new video album. When life gives you "Lemonade," you jump in the car and make tracks for the stadium. June 3, 7:30 p.m. $50-$310. Gillette Stadium, Foxborough. 800-745-3000,
