Iggy Pop takes it off for Tibet.   

Lorde
Roseland Ballroom, 239 W. 52nd St., nr. Broadway; 212-247-0200; 3/10–3/12 at 7 p.m.
When this teen popster with a-goth look last came through from her native New Zealand, it was right around the release of her stunning and moody debut, Pure Heroine. Two Grammys later—for “Royals,” a song she wrote when she was 15—she has to play three shows to accommodate all the fans.

Queensryche
Gramercy Theatre, 127 E. 23rd St., nr. Lexington Ave.; 212-614-6932; 3/11 at 6:30 p.m.
The “Silent Lucidity” prog-rockers recently split into two bands with the same name. This version, featuring Geoff Tate, celebrates 25 years of their album Operation: Mindcrime.

Tibet House Benefit
Carnegie Hall, 154 W. 57th St., at Seventh Ave.; 212-247-7800; 3/11 at 7:30 p.m.
Learn about Tibetan culture at this year's talent-heavy benefit, which includes performances by Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, composer Philip Glass, synth-poppers New Order, and members of The National. Tickets start at just $35, with proceeds from ticket sales going to support the work of the educational nonprofit.

Cat Power
Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 N. 6th St., nr. Wythe Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-486-5400; 3/11 at 9:30 p.m.
Over her two-decade career, the music of the richly emotional singer-songwriter has transformed from wispy, moody confessionals to 2012's joyous and propulsive Sun. She swings through solo, with cuts from her entire catalog.

Elvis Costello & The Roots
The Capitol Theatre, 149 Westchester Ave., nr. Pearl St., Port Chester, NY; 914-937-4126;3/12 at 7 p.m.
Last year, the musically adventurous kindred spirits collaborated for Wise Up Ghost, which we described as "a surprisingly successful blend of Costello’s acerbic songwriting with the Roots’ elastic funk" in our Fall Preview.

The Allman Brothers Band
The Beacon Theater, 2124 Broadway, nr. 74th St.; 212-465-6500; through 3/29
This will be the last annual residency of the southern-jam rockers' current lineup, as guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced earlier this year that they would be leaving the band. There are 14 chances to catch them.
