The hard-hitting Kansas City rapper is one of the most prolific acts on the scene: Just five months after the release of his 13th full-length album, "Something Else," he's set to issue the rock-fueled EP "Therapy," due Nov. 5. With Mayday, Prozak, Stevie Stone and Ces Cru. 6 p.m., the Fillmore Detroit, 2115 Woodward, Detroit. 313-961-5450. $20-$35.
Deltron 3030 bowed at the turn of the millennium with a far-out hip-hop concept album; now we finally have a follow-up from the alt-rap supergroup composed of emcees Kid Koala and Del the Funky Homosapien with producer Dan the Automator: "Event 2," released last month, is another head-tripping batch of funky futurism. 8 p.m., Garden Theater, 3919 Woodward, Detroit. $22.50, $25.

This Northern Ireland trio mixes angular postpunk-ish indie rock, pop hooks and electronic frills for an often intoxicating blend that has made it the biggest band in its homeland. TDCC is steadily building a U.S. audience, and this tour accompanying the new EP "Changing of the Seasons" brings the group to Pontiac for its first Michigan show. With St. Lucia and Peace. 7 p.m., the Crofoot Ballroom, 1 S. Saginaw, Pontiac. 248-858-9333. $26.50. Sold out. (Official afterparty follows next door at 11 p.m. in the Pike Room. $10, $12.)

It was only a matter of time before the rise of EDM prompted the kind of mainstream adaptation we see with Krewella, who situate the sounds of dubstep and bass drops into a traditional pop template. The Chicago trio's party music got a big boost with the single "Alive" earlier this year; the album "Get Wet" followed last month with a Top 10 debut, setting the stage for this two-night Royal Oak stand from singing sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf and their producer henchman Kris Trindl. With Seven Lions and Candyland. 8 p.m. Saturday, 6 p.m. Sunday, Royal Oak Music Theatre, 318 W. Fourth, Royal Oak. 248-399-2980. $29.50-$35.
Time is flying: Drummer Zac Hanson will turn 28 next week, and his older brothers are now in their 30s. Seventeen years after "MMMBop" turned Hanson into the teenybop sensation du jour, the brotherly trio retains a fervent if cozy fan base and even a fair bit of critical respect. The band is touring behind its latest album, "Anthem." 7 p.m., the Crofoot Ballroom, 1 S. Saginaw, Pontiac. 248-858-9333. $31 advance, $36 day-of.
He'll certainly never please the classical purists, but Josh Groban has found his own comfy cubbyhole in the music world with his majestic operatic pop. The Interlochen alum is touring in support of his sixth and most pop-leaning album yet, "All That Echoes." With Judith Hill. 7:30 p.m., Palace of Auburn Hills, I-75 at exit 81. 248-377-0100. $47.50-$97.50.
