Sigur Ros: Since the 1999 breakout album "Ágætis Byrjun," Sigur Ros has made exactly the kind of art-rock gossamer you'd expect from Reykjavík, Iceland, weaving Jónsi Birgisson's mountaintop falsetto and bow-on-guitar whale calls into a modern, digital sound warmed by echoes of the spiritual. But the new album, "Kveikur," is decidedly darker, a welcome turn for many fans. 7 p.m. at Bayfront Park (301 N. Biscayne Blvd., Miami). Singer Julianna Barwick will open.$21.50-$46. LiveNation.com.
