Friday through Tuesday

The Aquarium, 226 Broadway in Fargo, heads into the final week of Rocktober with a full plate of diverse, live music.

  • Friday – Fargo expats, and the band that taught Kid Jonny Lang how to play, The Big Bang, reunites for their first show in over a decade. (9 p.m. $5.)
  • Saturday – Minneapolis singer/songwriter Keri Noble returns to town for a night of piano pop. (8 p.m. $8 in advance, $10 on Saturday.)
  • Sunday – Twin Cities hip-hop stars P.O.S. and Rhymesayers labelmates Eyedea & Abilities roll into town with Plain Ole Bill, Kip G and Zach for an early all-ages show and a later ID-only gig. (6:30 and 10 p.m. $12 in advance, $14 at the door.)
  • Monday – Virginia rockers Mae (Multi-sensory Aesthetic Experience) headline this early, all-ages show, but there’s been buzz around opener Jenny Owen Youngs, whose song was featured on the TV show “Weeds.” (5:30 p.m. $15.)
  • Tuesday – The Revival Tour collects stray singers from punk backgrounds (Chuck Ragan from Hot Water Music and Jim Ward from Sparta) and have an affinity for folk/country simplicity (Audra Mae and Austin and Bob Lucas) for some stripped-down, but still revved-up rock. (9 p.m. $13 in advance, $15 day of.)
