An Evening with Yann Tiersen
Yann Tiersen first captured the world’s attention with his memorable score to the 2001 film, Amélie. His latest album, ALL, is an exploration of modern environmentalism and humanity’s place within nature. The opening track, “Tempelhof,” named after the former Nazi air base and current refugee shelter in Berlin, is bittersweet as the sounds of children playing at the derelict airport echo behind a somber piano melody. Moore Theatre, $27–$47

The Wild Reeds
Since 2014’s Blind and Brave, Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe, and Sharon Silva, who comprise the Wild Reeds, have consistently released raw and intoxicating anthems which draw from their own varied life experiences. The indie-folk band is at its best when all three voices merge to showcase impressive harmonies over its soft and subdued sound. Neumos, $15
