DeRay Mckesson
Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson is an easy-to-recognize face (thanks to his blue Patagonia vest) and voice (via his Crooked Media radio show Pod Save the People) in the modern resistance revolution happening right now. Touring to support his first book On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope, McKesson will engage local civic leaders in a “no-holds-barred conversation about inclusion and community.” (7:30 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, $15-40) SUZETTE SMITH

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Paul Cherry
On their last record, 2017’s Backlash, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears’ soulful, infectious blues met riff-heavy funk, with the focus shifting from Lewis’ noted fretwork to peppy brass and a steady rhythmic pocket, as heard on the excellent “Global.” As evidenced by their status as veterans of pretty much every major American music festival, the band is known for engaging performances that orbit around Lewis’ unhinged vocal delivery that sounds inspired by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and James Brown. It’s the kind of guitar hero-centric act that’s not unlike the unifying allure of Jimi Hendrix or Lenny Kravitz (if that’s your thing). Their sixth studio LP, The Difference Between You and Me, is due out this month. (9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $18-20) RYAN J. PRADO

Table Sugar, Nick Normal, Collate
Olympia-hailing art punk quartet Table Sugar bring their shapeshifting sounds down the I-5 for an all-ages show at Speck's, with likeminded locals Nick Normal and Collate on hand to round out the proceedings. (7 pm, Speck's Records and Tapes, $5)

Hurry Up, Savak, Goddamned Animals
Hurry Up is the unholy trinity of Maggie Vail (bass), Kathy Foster (drums), and Westin Glass (guitar). It’s also kind of a super-group: Vail fronted the now-defunct Bangs, she and Foster represent two-thirds of the Strange Babes DJs, and Foster and Glass play in the Thermals. On their debut self-titled EP, Hurry Up sounds fluent in the lo-fi punk tradition of Dead Moon—all three sing (and scream) over big, razor-edged guitar riffs and drum attacks more intimidating than a charging rhinoceros (8 pm, Kenton Club, $7) CIARA DOLAN

The Wailers
Pioneering reggae rock bassist Aston “Family Man” Barrett and the rest of the reunited Wailers make their way thorough the Aladdin Theater for the Portland stop on their North American tour. (8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $25-30, all ages)

The Doubleclicks, Danielle Ate the Sandwich
Angela and Aubrey Webber bring their beloved geek-folk outfit down to the Siren Theater for a headlining show with support from like-minded Fort Collins, Colorado singer/songwriter Danielle Anderson. (7 pm, Siren Theater, $12-15)
