ImageMagick is a handy, powerful command-line tool that can crop, scale, rotate, change format, apply basic (and some not-so-basic) effects to pretty much all sorts of images. Does something like it exist for audio?

Barring some sort of omni-tool like that, I need something at the moment to join together a bunch of tracks from a concert and (separately) transcode dozens of files from FLAC to something more supported.

Yep, it's called SoX

SoX is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux, MacOS X, etc.) command line utility that can convert various formats of computer audio files in to other formats. It can also apply various effects to these sound files, and, as an added bonus, SoX can play and record audio files on most platforms.
