Weakened Friends
8 p.m. Friday. Portland House of Music, 25 Temple St., Portland, $18 in advance, $20 day of show, 21-plus.
Portland rock trio Weakened Friends is singer/guitarist Sonia Sturino, Annie Hoffman on bass, and drummer Adam Hand. The band is calling its latest string of dates around the U.S. the Awkward Tour, but the only thing awkward about it is waking up the day after and realizing you missed it. Connecticut’s Cinema Stare is opening the show, and if the track “Real Problems” from the band’s new album, “The Things I Don’t Need,” is any indication, you don’t want to miss their set.

8 p.m. Sunday. Portland House of Music, 25 Temple St., Portland, $20, 21-plus.
“Book of Fools” is the latest album from North Carolina-based indie-Americana quartet Mipso. The sonic landscape blends fuzzy guitar pop elements with ’70s-esque rock that’s infused with sensational harmonies, making for a tremendous album. The live show should prove to be epic. Singer-songwriter Kate Rhudy, a fellow North Carolinian, opens the show.
