Tuesday, September 20Fleet Foxes

Hey, remember when Arcade Fire won the Grammy for Album of the Year? That was crazy, right? Here’s something even crazier: If we can assume that the voting committee for those things has somehow gotten a little younger and a little hipper since the days when (shudder) Steely Dan or Santana won it all, then Seattle folk act Fleet Foxes just might take the prize this year. They certainly seem to have all their ducks in a row: A great behind-the-scenes story involving the heartbreak, potential destitution, blood, sweat and all that went into making their sophomore album, Helplessness Blues, over the course of a couple of long years. Then there’s the matter of the album itself, a wonderment of expansion on their now-signature sound that’s at once uplifting and devastating. Another feather in their cap: Helplessness Blues debuted in the Billboard Top Ten. Prepare that place on your mantel, boys. Wait – what’s T Bone Burnett up to? – Justin Strout (with the Walkmen; 8 p.m. at Florida Theatre, 128 E. Forsyth, Jacksonville; $28-$33; 904-355-2787; floridatheatre.com)
