Live Tonight: A Tribe Called Red, Wolfmother, Foxygen

Canadian trio A Tribe Called Red brings a unique perspective to dance music, combining hip-hop and electronic music with elements of aboriginal music like chanting and percussion to make “powwow step,” most recently showcased on its latest, Nation II Nation. ATCR also created Electric Powwow, a monthly event featuring indigenous DJs, to further this eclectic sound. With Riz Rollins, J Justice. Barboza, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9951, thebarboza.com. 8 p.m. $15 adv. 21 and over. AZARIA C. PODPLESKY

After five years of silence, classic-rock revivalists Wolfmother returned this year with a surprise new album, New Crown, that was mostly panned by fans and critics. But that doesn’t mean the band’s out for good. Between stirring hits like “Joke & the Thief” and “Woman,” there are still plenty of hard-rock vibes to go around. With Electric Citizen. The Neptune, 1303 N.E. 45th St., 682-1414, stgpresents.com/neptune. 9 p.m. $25. All ages. DUSTY HENRY

It’s hard to say which version of Foxygen will show up to any given performance. Will it be the band known to quarrel and bicker onstage? Or the one to throw down a set of raucous, transcendent R&B indie rock? Part of the excitement of seeing the band live is knowing it could be one of the worst or best shows you’ve ever seen. With Woods, Steve Gunn. Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9467, neumos.com. 8 p.m. $15 adv. 21 and over. DH
