Cold War Kids/Middle Kids
Sunday 8 p.m. The Fillmore, 1000 NC Music Factory Blvd. $25. www.livenation.com.
Yes, it’s an all-ages show, but not because both bands have “kids” in their name. With shades of ’90s rock and INXS, Cold War Kids readies for the release of its sixth album, “L.A. Divine,” on April 7. Australian opener Middle Kids has enjoyed stateside success with the single “Edge of Town” and released its debut EP last month.

Ray – one half of the folk-pop duo the Indigo Girls – has explored rock, punk and, in 2014, old-timey country as a solo artist. That most recent effort, “Goodnight Tender,” was a Southern affair with Carolinians Jim Brock, Heather McEntire and Phil Cook of Megafaun backing her. Cook, by the way, is also on Tuesday’s bill.
Young the Giant
Wednesday 8 p.m. The Fillmore, 1000 NC Music Factory Blvd. $27.50. www.livenation.com.
This California act has retained its radio popularity like few young alternative bands can. Over the course of three albums – the latest being 2016’s “Home of the Strange” – it’s clocked eight Top 40 alternative and rock singles with a sound that balances vocalist Sameer Gahdia’s swelling emotion, flowery pop and heavier rock.
Lee Fields & the Expressions

Born in Wilson, N.C., the veteran soul singer left the South for NYC and launched a successful singing career through the ’70s that garnered comparisons to James Brown. At 63, he remains an emotive singer and phenomenal showmen. His band’s not too shabby either, as it proves again on his latest album, “Special Night.”
