Die Kreuzen: Occupying the crossroads of hardcore, post-punk and metal, this Milwaukee quartet helped define the tough-as-nails Touch & Go sound of the ‘80s. They broke up in 1992, but reunited last year and are now playing a handful of dates, 8 p.m. Saturday at Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee Av., $17; doubledoor.com.

Chance the Rapper: The Chicago MC has just released his second mix tape, “Acid Rap,” which represents a quantum leap from his 2012 debut with its mix of clever wit and heavy-duty introspection, 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., $13 and $15 (sold out); metrochicago.com.
