Bless the angel-voiced, ginger-haired Ed Sheeran. "Give Me Love" in its recorded form is a semi-cloying ballad that'll still stick in your head strictly on the strength of his insistence on repeating the phrase "my my." But in performance, the young toast of the Brit Awards can show his improvisational acumen by turning the song into a playful game of follow the hook. He sings passionately by himself, accompanied by some looping pedals and a bit of strumming on an acoustic guitar that looked like it was something he got for his 12th birthday. With Passenger. $20-$24, 7:30 p.m. 805 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis; 612.339.7007.
