SHEMEKIA COPELAND

12/20 at 8 “Country music ain’t nothing but the blues with a twang,” belts Copeland on her new single, “Drivin’ Out of Nashville,” off her new genre-agnostic album Outskirts of Love. Expect a few tunes from that album and some Christmas jingles at this intimate concert, billed as a “holiday party.” $28–$38. City Winery, 1200 W. Randolph. citywinery.com

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA

12/28 at 3:30 and 8 Like clockwork, these prog rockers barrel through Chicago every year to pepper otherwise dreary winter standbys (“Carol of the Bells”) with ’80s-esque guitar solos and plenty of pyrotechnics. Here the group premieres a live performance of their 1999 TV movie The Ghosts of Christmas Eve. $40–$73. Allstate Arena, 6920 N. Mannheim, Rosemont. ticketmaster.com
