X Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and DJ Bonebrake: Now and always, this simply is one of the very best bands that American music has ever produced, punk or otherwise.

Baroness, the pride of Savannah, Ga., continues to tour behind its heroic 2015 comeback LP, “Purple”; Little Rock, Ark. quartet Pallbearer is promoting “Fear and Fury,” a characteristically windswept, elegiac new EP.

BARBRA STREISAND Distinctive and dynamic at 74, the Brooklyn native with the buttery voice is on the road with “The Music . . . The Mem’ries . . . The Magic,” and early reports suggest she’s transforming cavernous arenas into intimate, chatty soirées featuring three backing singers and a 10-piece band. Talk amongst yourselves. Aug. 16, 8 p.m. $99-$510. TD Garden. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
