Soft-rock stars
Air Supply, the Australian duo that melted all kinds of hearts in the 1970s and 1980s with a string of soft-rock hits like "All Out of Love" and "The One That You Love," will croon away in the suburbs this weekend.
8 p.m. Friday, May 9, at the Arcada Theater, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $39. Go to oshows.com.

Rock and theft
The Living Deads are a rockabilly duo from Denver with an unusual live-music approach. Whenever they can, drummer/singer Randee McKnight and stand-up-bass player Symphony Tidwell (love that name!) "kidnap" a guitarist from the local rockabilly scene to play with them on stage. The Living Deads will perform this weekend in Lombard. I wonder who will be playing guitar?
7 p.m. Friday, May 9, at the Brauerhouse, 1000 N. Rohlwing Road, Lombard. $8. Go to brauerhouse.com.

Unlikely pairing
Witty singer-songwriter Aimee Mann and punk-rock screamer Ted Leo might seem like a strange duo, but they've joined forces as the Both, and they're touring behind the Both's self-titled debut album. If Mann and Leo's previous work is any indication, expect this show to be funny, melodic and, at least occasionally, very very loud.
9 p.m. Friday, May 9, at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., Chicago. $25. Go to metrochicago.com.
