FLOETRY

5/1 at 7 When Floetry reunited in 2015, neosoul fans breathed a sigh of relief. The group’s decade-long hiatus saw a frustratingly quiet period for soul music, where cheesy troubadours like Sam Smith and Duffy ruled the Top 40. If you missed the band’s sold-out April show, don’t neglect this special encore. $55–$85. Venue at Horseshoe Casino, 777 Casino Center, Hammond, Ind. ticketmaster.com

TORI KELLY

5/6 at 8 Though she came up empty-handed at this year’s Grammys, Kelly made a lasting impression when her acoustic set at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards went viral. Here, she performs songs from Unbreakable Smile, her pop-flecked R&B album. $23–$33. Rosemont Theatre, 5400 N. River, Rosemont. rosemont.com

JEFF TWEEDY

5/13–14 Though his band Wilco released a surprise album, Star Wars, in 2015, expect Tweedy and Tweedy alone at this intimate acoustic set. $75–$150. Vic Theatre, 3145 N. Sheffield. jamusa.com
