Franz Ferdinand: The reinvigorated Scottish quartet is back with its fourth album, and first in four years, the aptly named “Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action,” which finds them presiding over a twisted party, 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Vic Theatre, 3145 N. Sheffield, $40; jamusa.com.

Tame Impala: Kevin Parker and his band of Australian acid-rockers roared at the Vic earlier this year. Now they’re back to play a room nearly double the size, and they should have no problems making it quake, 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Riviera Theatre, 4746 N. Racine Ave., $28; jamusua.com.
