Fall Out Boy, Paramore and New Politics at Austin360 Amphitheater. Reconstituted with 2013’s "Save Rock and Roll" after a nearly four-year hiatus, Fall Out Boy pretty much picked up right where they left off, topping the charts with danceable, mass-appeal alt-rock. The amphitheater is a big step up from Stubb’s, where the band appeared last summer with New Politics, also this show’s opener; it helps to have Paramore, which headlined its own Austin360 Amphitheater show last November, sharing the bill. $25-$63.50. 7 p.m. 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd. austin360amphitheater.com. — P.B.
