Local pop-rock
Blane Fonda, a rising pop-rock band with members from the suburbs, is getting noticed for its energetic brand of rock -- driving rhythms and chiming guitars topped with infectious synth lines. The band will headline an affordable show this weekend at one of the city's most inviting clubs. 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia, Chicago. $8. Go to hideoutchicago.com.

On his own
Lindsey Buckingham, one of the driving forces in Fleetwood Mac, will play an intimate one-man show next week in the suburbs. Buckingham's guitar and vocal work in Fleetwood Mac have made him a baby boomer hero, and he's also an accomplished solo artist; his last record, 2011's "Seeds We Sow," earned strong reviews. Expect Buckingham to play songs from both sides of his career at next week's show. 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, at the Arcada Theater, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $39. Go to oshows.com.

Alt-rock heroes
In the early days of the 1990s alternative explosion, Stone Temple Pilots were often dismissed as posers by critics and connoisseurs even as they scored hit after hit. The California band, led by charismatic (if troubled) frontman Scott Weiland, specialized in driving guitar rock that put a pop edge on the heavy riffs of bands like Nirvana and Mudhoney. Despite critics' hostility, STP's records sold like crazy throughout the decade, even during Weiland's persistent battle with drug addiction. (Twenty years after the fact, it's tough to see just what got critics so riled up.) The band will celebrate its 20 years during a show next week in Chicago. 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, at the Vic Theatre, 3145 N. Sheffield, Chicago. $59. Go to jamusa.com.
