There are 72 live music shows happening this weekend. Below we highlight a few with a video preview. Hoopla Music has profiles on more than 460 local bands and 205 songs to listen to.

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80

Son of legendary Afrobeat pioneer fronts the band created by his father. The performance is Saturday in Iowa City.

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones

When everyone else was dancing to a disco beat or banging their heads to hair metal, Bela Fleck was bent over his banjo, coaxing a kaleidoscope of colors from its strings. The show is Saturday in Cedar Falls.

Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten is arguably the most essential new songwriter in recent years. Her hushed debut, Because I Was In Love, was remarkable for its tense restraint and sharp lyrics while her follow-up Epic was one of 2010’s best; it was an album that veered between intense anthems and ethereal, almost ambient reflections. The performance is Friday in Iowa City.

The Antlers

The Antlers perform Saturday in Iowa City.
