Some can't-miss events to dive into this weekend.

1. Carpenters concert

The tribute scene is going strong these days. Proof of this is the show titled “Close to You: Music of The Carpenters.” 

A namesake of the band’s 1970 album, the “Close to You” program is led by veteran artist Lisa Rock, who has performed to sold-out crowds for years.

She’s written more than 15 original concerts and cabarets that’ve been seen across the country.

Rock has a six-piece band, complete with back-up singers, that’s dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience that fans eat up like a free buffet.

The music of The Carpenters begins at 8 p.m., Friday. Tickets are $25 to $30.

2. Americana meets rock ‘n’ roll

If you’re unfamiliar with Sarah Borges, there’s still a chance you’ve heard her music on TV shows “Sons of Anarchy” and “The Night Shift.”

The singer-songwriter blends rock ‘n’ roll and Americana. She understands the concept of hustle, which is evident in the seven records she dropped and countless miles she’s toured over 10-plus years.

She’s gone from frontwoman to solo act to frontwoman again. Borges has been honored with an Americana Music Award nomination and multiple Boston Music Awards.

You can catch Borges in SoDel at 10 p.m., Saturday. Admission is free.
