PUSHA T

4/5 at 7 Despite taking on the role of president of GOOD Music, Kanye West’s label, emcee Pusha T still has chops. The rapper, born Terrence Thornton and once a member of Clipse, clearly invests hours in his live sets, chopping and splicing his jangly hip-hop into precise, fiery medleys. $34–$99. Vic Theatre, 3145 N. Sheffield. etix.com

 

SAVAGES

4/7 at 9 Though it’s come and gone from the mainstream twice a decade since the ’80s, postpunk never truly dies—at least not in the hearts of die-hards and indie nerds. Consider Savages, the English noise rockers who emerged seemingly out of nowhere in 2011 with a minimalist take on the genre that’s always on the crest of a comeback. $24. Metro, 3730 N. Clark. etix.com

 

SOPHIE

4/8 at 10 Sophie, the stage name of London producer Samuel Long, may no longer release music anonymously, but that hasn’t stopped him from crafting hits for both himself and others (Madonna and Charli XCX among them). $16–$20. Primary Night Club, 5 W. Division. ticketfly.com
