Suzanne Vega and Ari Hest

On this year’s “Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles,” Suzanne Vega offered her first new material in seven years. She is, by turns, serious (songs about Mother Teresa, Buddhist philosophies), light-hearted (she name-checks Macklemore and samples 50 Cent) and self-reverential (“Song of the Stoic” is part “Luka,” part Leonard Cohen and part rap). For Vega fans, “Queen of Pentacles,” which refers to Tarot cards, is a good sign. Ari Hest opens. Jon Bream
