Dark Desert Eagles
9 p.m. Friday. Aura, 121 Center St., Portland, $15 to $29, 18-plus. auramaine.com
NOTE: This show has been postponed until Feb. 18.  You won’t need to travel on a dark desert highway to see the terrific tribute band Dark Desert Eagles, formed by Pat Badger, an original member of the rock band Extreme. Instead, head to Aura, where you’ll get that peaceful easy feeling while the band takes it to the limit. Will there be a heartache tonight? That’s up to you, just try not to act like a desperado. We have no doubt the bartender can mix you a tequila sunrise, though we’re not sure about pink Champagne on ice. Just be sure to stay out of the fast lane in your flat-bed Ford.

7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19. State Theatre, 609 Congress St., Portland, $27 in advance, $32 day of show. statetheatreportland.com
Alternative rock band Manchester Orchestra is in the midst of a tour in support of its latest album, “Million Masks of God,” released this year. The album has earned critical praise from Stereogum, NPR Music, American Songwriter and SPIN, among others. Listening to the lush opening tracks “Inaudible” and “Angel of Death” made it evident why the band has more than 1.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone. Foxing and Slothrust, both with new albums of their own, open the show.
