F&M: This lovely local duo-plus recently treated us to an our town cabaret at Aviary (you can read about here), and have decided to switch things up a little by doing an afternoon show of covers. Being as clever as they are, it’s not just all music from Will Oldham’s Palace Songs, but specifically from the band’s rather literary 1994 EP Hope, which includes the lovely Agnes, Queen of Sorrow. It’s an interesting concept, and the vocal power of Rebecca Anderson and softness of Ryan Anderson’s voice are sure to work wonders with the material. For a sample of these two in action, check out their cover of The Littlest Hobo’s theme song on YouTube, promise you’ll feel some feelings.
Details: 4 p.m. at Empress Ale House, 9912 82 Ave., free
Shout Out Out Out Out/Cantoo: One of Edmonton’s great exports — besides talking about Edmonton — is the raw energy and power of electro-pop band Shout Out Out Out Out which runs with the amazing concept of having two drummers and four bass players, plus all the meaty keys. When that machine gets rolling it is impossible to not be moved to motion, and they summon such a unique joy you can see on all their faces. Besides the band of ringers, the local scene is also well represented by Jom Comyn drumming for Cantoo, pretty much a total win all around.

Fleetwood Mac: Yeah yeah, no Lindsey Buckingham. But are you really going to sneeze at Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood — along with Mike Campbell, who co-wrote Tom Petty’s Refugee, and Split Enz/Crowded House’s Neil Finn? Tickets are still available for this show behind the Gretzky Statue, and the new nuances of this new combination of musicians has been getting solid reviews.
Details: 8 p.m. at Rogers Place, tickets start at $89 at Ticketmaster
