BLACK SABBATH They say this is our last chance to see three-quarters of the quintessential English heavy-metal band, and you get the sense they’re telling the truth this time. The set list offers no surprises, but think of this as paying your last respects. Aug. 25, 7:30 p.m. $29.50- $150. Xfinity Center, Mansfield. 800-745-3000,

BENT KNEE Newly returned from a successful European tour and bearing in its wake a string of glowing press reports, this artfully emotive/emotively artful sextet continues to share stirring tunes from its recent debut release, “Say So.” Aug. 26, 10 p.m. $10. Great Scott. 800-745-3000,

THE DRESDEN DOLLS His brief stint in Violent Femmes now concluded, drummer Brian Viglione teams up anew with his longtime creative partner, the singer, songwriter, keyboardist, author, and provocateur Amanda Palmer, in this much-loved punk-cabaret duo. Be prompt: the cheeky, charming queercore duo PWR BTTM plays in support. Aug. 26, 7:30 p.m. $20-$44.50. Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. 800-745-3000,

LE1F The out-loud-and-proud New York rapper and producer born Khalif Diouf returns to Cambridge for an evening of fierce fashion and funky-fresh flamboyance, in support of last year’s innovative and infectious “Riot Boi.” Aug. 23, 8 p.m. $15, advance $13. Middle East Upstairs, Cambridge. 617-864-3278,
