Open Streets 704

Sun., Oct. 23, 1-5 p.m.

The second of four such citywide block parties made possible by a Knight Foundation grant, this Open Streets 704 event will shut down traffic along a stretch of roads for a full Sunday Funday of playing in the streets and interacting without all those damn cars around. The new route will run from Seversville, skirt around Uptown in the Fourth Ward, cut through Wilmore and end in Dilworth/South End. See full route on website.

Loreena McKennitt

Mon., Oct. 24, 7:30 p.m.

Headed out on the road as a trio, Loreena McKennitt is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her 1991 release, The Visit. Her music is inspired by world travels ­— from Celtic history to classical poets and playwrights, from Greek history to the people of Morocco and Istanbul. She also sees a therapeutic benefit of her music and several foster children will be in attendance at her shows, as part of her work with Music that RECLAIMs. $20-$89.50

Tue., Oct. 25, 7 p.m.

Columbus, Ohio, rockers Beartooth bring an aggressive attitude that’s just at home at Warped Tour as it will be in the smaller confines of The Underground. The band’s new album, aptly titled Aggressive, topped the charts earlier this summer. It’s amazing how far they’ve come in just a few short years thanks to music that balances the melodic with the heavy. Get there early for an equally punishing set from Every Time I Die. $21

Die Antwoord

Tue., Oct. 25, 8 p.m.

I’m not quite sure what to say about this duo, but their live performances sure are entertaining. The music teeters between the ridiculous and impactful. Just when you think South African rappers Ninja and Yolandi are making a statement, you wonder if it’s all a big joke. Either way, they’ve got a style all their own that should be witnessed at least once. They’re touring in support of their fourth album, Mount Ninji and da Nice Time Kid. $30

Hannibal Buress

Fri., Jan. 20, 8 p.m.

RESCHEDULED: Following up on last year’s “Comedy Camisado Tour” in Charlotte, Hannibal Burress is back with the “Hannibal Montanabel Experience.” The comic started to get shine as Ilana’s sort-of boyfriend on Broad City, but he’s built his own name up and become one of the nation’s most popular stand-up acts since. He’s come a long way from sleeping on the train in Chicago between stand-up gigs during his come-up. $25 and up
