After impressing the crowd at Music Midtown last month with a fiery performance, New York-based X Ambassadors is returning to Atlanta for a Halloween gig. It’s been a solid year for the band, which broke through with the hit “Renegades” and has been tapped as opener for Muse’s 2016 tour. X Ambassadors guitarist Noah Feldshuh told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an interview last week that the guys have “stirred the pot a little” about doing something special for their Halloween gig. “Hopefully, our music won’t scare anyone off,” Feldshuh joked.

Since 2007, the dapper Canadian quartet has performed more than 500 concerts on five continents and appeared on broadcasts as disparate as the Emmy Awards (in 2012) and the Stanley Cup Finals (2014). They’ve performed with Paul McCartney, Sting, Sheryl Crow and Andrea Bocelli and hit both adult contemporary and classical charts with their impeccably blended operatic pop vocals. The group released its fourth album, “Under One Sky,” in May.

Chance the Rapper
Chicago’s Chance the Rapper — aka Chancelor Johnathan Bennett — has cited everyone from Kanye West to James Brown to Kirk Franklin as influences. His mixtapes have featured such guests as Twista and Childish Gambino, while his first official album, “Surf,” was released with his side project, the Social Experiment, a band that also includes Donnie Trumpet, Peter Cottontale, Greg Landfair Jr. and Nate Fox. No wonder his tour is called Family Matters.

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood
The former Black Crowes frontman returns home with his collective and will have a special guest in tow — legendary Grateful Dead archivist Betty Cantor-Jackson, who will mix and record the performance straight from the soundboard. Cantor-Jackson has produced the band’s series of limited-edition live releases — called “Betty’s Blends” — and the Atlanta concert will serve as the third volume. The idea, according to Robinson, is to position CRB as a “farm to table” rock band.
8 p.m. Nov. 5. $20. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.
