The singular singer-songwriter Karl Blau returns to town with a new album and a new sound: a slinky, jazzy Afro-pop as beguiling as his countrified soul material. He’s at The Apohadion Theater (107 Hanover St., Portland) with openers Heartwarmer and Wildflower at 8 p.m. Tix: $8 (all ages). 831-9569. theapohadiontheater.com.
