RHYS CHATHAM The 2nd SHIFT Music Series welcomes the punk-minimalist visionary, an auteur of symphonies for armies of electric guitars. Paradoxically, in his first local appearance since 2007 he'll play enhanced solo-guitar music of the sort found on his entrancing new LP, "Pythagorean Dream." May 26, 7:30 p.m. $20-$30. Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation, Waltham. 781-893-5410,

DEBO BAND In the face of a challenging year including a contentious election at home, the refugee crisis abroad, and the deaths of musical heroes, "Ere Gobez," the new album by this Boston Ethio-jazz outfit, serves as a hard-charging call to celebration. This World Music/CRASHarts concert marks Debo Band's 10th anniversary as well as the LP's arrival, so you know spirits will be soaring. May 26, 8 p.m. $15. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-876-4275,

BOSTON CALLING What we love the most about the latest installment of the fest that's changed the city's landscape: You won't find a more female-forward lineup, yet they're treating this as business as usual. Headliners include Sia and Sufjan Stevens (May 27), Robyn and Odesza (May 28), and Disclosure, Haim, and Janelle MonĂ¡e (May 29) — and that's just the tip of the iceberg. May 27-29. Tickets: $60 (May 27), $85 (May 28, 29), VIP $150 (May 27), $185 (May 28, 29); two- and three-day passes available. City Hall Plaza.
