Kweli battled social issues with a chef’s knife, slicing and dicing major problems with relative ease behind the microphone. A new album, Radio Silence, is due out later this year.

Music Notes Show of the Week

Saturday, July 11: Matthew Sweet with The Orange Peels at Shank Hall, 8 p.m. ($20)

Power pop singer Matthew Sweet gained notoriety in the early 1990s from the self-titled single off his third album, Girlfriend. But while no song reached more people than that cut, the Athens, Ga., singer was no one-hit wonder. His knack for infectious melodies and slick guitar work earned him a deserved cult status throughout the following two decades. On Saturday night he plays Shank Hall, an establishment known for bringing in underappreciated talent every blue moon, in what could be the city’s best show of the summer. (1434 N.
