The country singer is celebrating the fifth anniversary of her album “Girl” on an RSVP Redux Tour that promises a different set list each night curated by fans. "Girl" sent two songs to the top of Billboard's country airplay chart — the title track and "The Bones" — and took home Album of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. Variety said the album "exists in the post-Spotify world where kids don’t look at genre classifications, and where, among the adults, women innately seem a hell of a lot less hung up on boundaries than the men are."

Vampire Weekend

The New York rockers are touring the States in support of "Only God Was Above Us," an album Sputnikmusic says "marks the absolute zenith of Vampire Weekend’s career," is "a magnum opus by every possible angle of inspection'' that's "utterly brilliant" and "ten songs, no skips," for those of you who measure albums by how many songs you feel the urge to skip. Variety's reviewer also found it an "essential chapter in the band’s still-evolving sound and career." And those of you who might prefer to hear them do the songs that made you love them in the first place? Recent sets have featured four songs from their classic first release and three to four song from this critic's personal favorite, "Modern Vampires in the City."

Details: 7 p.m. Sunday, June 9. Arizona Financial Theatre,400 W. Washington St., Phoenix. Resale ticket prices vary.800-745-3000,

James McMurtry

The son of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Larry McMurtry arrives in support of 2021's acclaimed "The Horses and the Hounds," a masterstroke of richly detailed storytelling that offsets pointed social commentary with glimpses of humor. On “Ft. Walton Wake-Up Call,”he wonders, "How are they gonna build a wall with no Mexicans anyway?" On "Operation Nevermind," he serves up a withering view of U.S. interventionism. "We won't let the cameras near the fighting," he sings. "That way, we won't have another Vietnam." Uncut magazine said McMurtry "lifts storytelling-in-song to meticulous new levels" on this album, which seems about right.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 9. Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave., Phoenix. $25-$40. 602-716-2222,

Caifanes and Cafe Tacvba

Tedeschi Trucks Band

Susan Tedeschi had already earned five Grammy nominations by the time she and her husband, slide guitarist Derek Trucks, joined forces, bringing home a best blues album Grammy for their first joint effort, "Revelator." That one felt a bit like Derek and the Dominoes as fronted by a woman, blending blues and soul with occasional hints of a '70s soft-rock vibe. Thirteen years later, the blues-rock collective isstill going strong, a must-see live attraction with a growing catalog of classic songs.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11. Arizona Financial Theatre,400 W. Washington St., Phoenix. $64.50 and up.800-745-3000,

Kamasi Washington

The visionary saxophonist has appeared on classic albums by Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Thundercat and Run the Jewels while earning accolades and a devoted following for his own music, including this year's aptly titled "Fearless Movement," a sprawling masterstroke of modern jazz that Washington has called his "dance" album. But lest you think that means he's gone all EDM on us, as Washington explained in announcing the album, "Dance is movement and expression, and in a way it’s the same thing as music — expressing your spirit through your body."

Details: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11. Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St. $32-$72. 480-644-6500,

Camera Obscura

The Scottish indie-pop legends are touring the States in support of their first album in 11 years, "Look to the East, Look to the West." And if you've heard the album, then you know how good it is to hear from them again. They took a brief hiatus from 2015 to 2018 after keyboard player Carey Lander, a founding member, died of cancer. "Look to the East, Look to the West" is haunted by that loss, especially on "Almond Eyes," a tribute to Lander with lead singer Tracyanne Campbell singing, "I liked who we were together/ I'm not sure who I'll be apart / I will love you forever and ever / You didn't take much, you never got to start."

Details: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 12. Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave., Phoenix. $25. 602-716-2222,

Echo & the Bunnymen

They emerged from Liverpool in 1980 with a debut titled "Crocodiles" that placed them squarely at the forefront of the neo-psychedelic movement. Rolling Stone responded with a four-star rave that said, "Ian McCulloch specializes in a sort of apocalyptic brooding, combining Jim Morrison-style psychosexual yells, a flair for David Bowie-like vocal inflections and the nihilistic bark of his punk peers into a disturbing portrait of the singer as a young neurotic." As impressive as their latest album was, it's been six years now and they're on a tour named for their classic greatest-hits collection, "Songs to Learn & Sing," so you can probably expect to hear a bunch of stuff you know.

Details:8 p.m. Thursday, June 13. The Van Buren, 401 W. Van Buren St., Phoenix. $64 and up. 866-468-3399,

Old Crow Medicine Show

The Grammy-winning roots revivalists who gave the world "Wagon Wheel" are now in their 26th year of not so much preserving as revitalizing old-time American music, from Appalachian folk to reckless rock 'n' roll. This should be a hootenanny to remember featuring their most beloved songs and highlights of their latest effort, "Jubilee," which Uncut praised for having managed "the deft balance of embracing tradition without lapsing into curatorial piousness or zany pastiche." To which it may be fair to add I could swear I remember some zany pastiche in the mix.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13. Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 E. Second St. $74.50-$110.25. 480-499-8587,

Their second album, 1989’s “The Great Radio Controversy,” was certified double-platinum, largely fueled by the success of “Love Song” and heavy rotation on MTV’s "Headbangers’ Ball."

Details: 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 17. Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St. $45-$125. 480-644-6500,

Cowboy Junkies

Recorded in a single day around a single microphone inside a church, "The Trinity Session" was the kind of record friends told friends they had to hear because you'd hate to think a friend was missing out on such a disarmingly intimate spin on classic country music. A haunting sleepwalk through the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" was the standout most likely to make that friend say, "I need to own thisrecord now or preferably sooner."And last year's positively brilliant "Such Ferocious Beauty" effortlessly lived up to their mesmerizing legacy.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18. Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 E. Second St. $38-$58. 480-499-8587,

Details: 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 19. Footprint Center,201 E. Jefferson St., Phoenix. Resale ticket prices vary. 602-379-7800,

Todd Rundgren

Rundgren is, in many ways, the quintessential rock ‘n’ roll enigma, a restless spirit who’s been following his own lead from the start. As a producer, he’s responsible for classic albums by the New York Dolls, Badfinger, Patti Smith, Cheap Trick, XTC, the Tubes and Meat Loaf. His “Something/Anything?” made Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.The left turn that followed that perfect pop masterpiece, “A Wizard, A True Star” has been hailed in the Guardian as “harmonically richer and more ambitiously deranged than ‘The White Album.’" But to the general public, he’s still pretty much defined by five hit singles: “We Gotta Get You a Woman,” “I Saw the Light,” “Hello It’s Me,” “Can We Still Be Friends” and “Bang the Drum All Day.”

Details: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 19. Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., Phoenix. $45-$55. 602-267-1600,


The R&B singer is launching the Sorry I'm Outside Tour, his first since 2018, at the Van Buren in support of “PartyNextDoor 4," which hit the U.S. album charts at No. 10 and added four more R&B hits to his resume and brought home a rave from Clash Music, whose critic proclaimed it "an alluring document of salacious R&B titillation." PartyNextDoor's hits include three multiplatinum Drake-assisted singles: "Recognize," "Come and See Me" and "Loyal."

Details: 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 19. The Van Buren, 401 W. Van Buren St., Phoenix. Resale ticket prices vary. 866-468-3399,


The Japanese noise-rock legends were rocking with reckless abandon and headphone-melting clatter on their latest studio release, 2013's "Fetch." And there's apparently a new one in the pipeline titled "3+5." They're joined by Tomato Flower, BabyBaby_Explores and Squidpisser.

Fuerza Regida

The regional Mexican music sensations from San Bernardino, California, had to add a second night to meet demand for tickets to their 2024 Pero No Te Enamores Tour at Footprint Center. Fronted by Jesús Ortiz Paz, Fuerza Regida rose to fame in early 2023 with the release of "Bebe Dame" a hit collaboration with Grupo Frontera that topped the U.S. Latin charts and peaked at No. 25 on Billboard's Hot 100. Other U.S. hits include "TQM," "Sabor Fresa" and the Marshmello collaboration "Harley Quinn."

Drive-By Truckers

It's been 23 years since Drive-By Truckers grabbed the mainstream rock press by the collar with "Southern Rock Opera," a two-record triumph that tackled the myths and more elusive truths of what it means to be a Southern man. And in those intervening years, despite a string of lineup changes, they've emerged as one of rock and roll's more dependable standard bearers. What concerns us here, though, is that awe-inspired breakthrough they'll be dusting off in its entirety when the Southern Rock Opera Revisited Tour arrives in Phoenix. Amazing band, amazing album. What more could you possibly want from a night out in Phoenix?

Details: 8 p.m. Sunday, June 23. The Van Buren, 401 W. Van Buren St., Phoenix. $45 and up. 866-468-3399,

Joe Jackson

The Two Rounds of Racket Tour is a concert in two parts: a solo set by Jackson performing his original material and a set based on the album "What A Racket!," the first performance in more than 100 years of the songs of forgotten English Music Hall genius Max Champion, with Jackson fronting a nine-piece band. Champion was born in 1882 in London's East End. His career cut short by World War I, his songs faded into obscurity until 2014, when his sheet music started to surface. By 2019, enough songs had been recovered for Jackson to resurrect them with a 12-piece orchestra.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 24. Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., Phoenix. $25. 602-267-1600,

Martinez will be joined by special guestsBeach Bunny and Sofia Isella.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 25. Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., Phoenix. $25. 602-267-1600,


These Brooklyn indie-rockers work the dream-pop side of '80s post-punk like a charm while emphasizing, as the AV Club said of the first release, "a charmingly low-budget kind of grandeur, like Ride’s 'Nowhere'reconstructed via laptop." And they haven't strayed far from that formula as they've matured, resulting in the hazy brilliance of their latest effort. This year's "Frog in Boiling Water" is a perfect mix of heavily distorted shoegazing intensity and shimmering ballads as ethereal as "Raining on Your Pillow" and the mesmerizing title track.

Details: 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 25. The Van Buren, 401 W. Van Buren St., Phoenix. $44.50 and up. 866-468-3399,
