Here’s a look at the top concerts of the week, highlighted by the return of the founder of the Lilith Fair.

Sarah McLachlan

The Canadian vocalist was one of the most significant artists of the ‘90s, not only due to her own stellar songbook – which includes such great albums as 1991’s “Solace,” 1993’s “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy” and 1997’s “Surfacing” – but also because of her work as the founder of the incredibly influential all-women Lilith Tour.

McLachlan, who has reportedly sold more than 40 million records in her career, returns to the Bay Area to perform Feb. 24 at the Fox Theater in Oakland. It should be a great night of music. Here’s hoping the set list includes “Drawn to the Rhythm.”

Details: 8 p.m.; $56-$126, ticketmaster.com

Machine Head

The East Bay metal act performs a big hometown show at the Fox Theater in Oakland on Feb. 21. Machine Head is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its hard-hitting debut, 1994’s “Burn My Eyes.”

Details: 8 p.m.; $39.50-$49.50, ticketmaster.com
