Le Butcherettes: The whip-smart, butt-kicking Teri Gender Bender leads her band with a mixture of tart, provocative lyrics and acrobatic stage antics, pushing both her audience and band to the brink of exhaustion, 9 p.m. Friday at Subterranean, 2011 W. North Av., $10; subt.net.

Drake: The fast-rising hip-hop star, last seen playing theaters, tries to make the leap to amphitheaters this summer, with the requisite ramp-up in production. Will his intimate style still translate on the bigger stages? 7 p.m. Saturday at the First World Bank Amphitheatre, Tinley Park, Ill., $30 to $130; ticketmaster.com.
