3/6 at 7 By now, Peter Bradley Adams is a reliable bet to play SPACE each year. Were the music backing the lyrics not so persistently pretty, the singer’s brand of wanderlusty folk might have gotten old three albums ago (say, on the standout Leavetaking). But eight years later, the native of Birmingham, Alabama, is still penning tearjerkers like it’s day one. $15–$26. SPACE, 1245 Chicago, Evanston.



3/4 at 8:30 Country singer Angela James and jazz trio Stirrup reprise their oddly fitting live collaboration to premiere James’s second LP, Time Will Tell. $10. Constellation, 3111 N. Western.
