SWANS The swansong arrives for Michael Gira and the present configuration of his reactivated art-rock band, touring in support of a fourth and final album, "The Glowing Man." Potent as the new disc is (and its predecessors have been), the stage is where the group comes to life, the terrible beauty of its teeming drones and monolithic beats approaching transcendence. July 7, 7 p.m. $25, advance $23. Royale Boston. 800-745-3000,

AND THE KIDS A Northampton indie-rock trio whose star has been on a precipitous rise in recent years, And the Kids celebrates the arrival of its second LP, "Friends Share Lovers," an instantly appealing collection of snappy tunes in smart arrangements. July 7, 8:30 p.m. $12. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 617-547-5200,

STEELY DAN + STEVE WINWOOD Do you remember a time when Steely Dan wasn't the hardest-touring band in show biz? Neither do we. For this latest jaunt, waggishly dubbed "The Dan Who Knew Too Much Tour," the formerly reclusive Walter Becker and Donald Fagen will be joined by a legendary support act worth the ticket price all by himself. July 7, 7 p.m. $29.95-$125. Xfinity Center, Mansfield. 800-745-3000,
