Flying Lotus in 3D @ First Avenue
On record, Steven Ellison crafts sweeping funk-fusion soundscapes: fidgety, solemnly goofy exercises in cosmic jazz beatplay. Live, the experimental electronic producer is louder, harsher, glitchier, and more immersive, famous for bright and engaging light shows during concerts so you don't have to stare at him pushing buttons on his computer all night. He's collaborated with the visual technology company 3D Live to create virtual holograms around him on stage and will supply concertgoers with 3D glasses. Flamagra, released at the end of May, is his first album since his most acclaimed work came out five years ago, the sly, mournful electronic requiem You're Dead! The new one's a rambling, wacky excursion into psychedelia, featuring a spoken-word piece by David Lynch ("Fire Is Coming") and an even-scarier experimental funk ballad with Anderson .Paak ("More"). 7:30 p.m. $30. 701 1st Ave. N., Minneapolis.

Belinda Carlisle @ Leinie Lodge Bandshell
The former Go-Gos’ singer’s last two albums include 2007’s Voila, a French chanson cover album (“La Vie en rose,” “Ne me quitte pas,” “Bonnie et Clyde”), and 2017’s Wilder Shores, a collection of Sikh chants in Gurmukhi, influenced by her study of yoga (and closing with, what else, an acoustic “Heaven Is a Place on Earth”). Her State Fair show will presumably focus instead on her ‘80s pop hits, both solo and with her old band. Free with fair admission. 8:30 p.m. 1265 Snelling Ave N, St. Paul.
