He’s drawn comparisons to provocateurs like Hendrix and Davis. From funk to bluegrass, classical to jazz, ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro has taken the instrument to places that Don Ho (the icon of breezy Hawaiian pop) could never have imagined. At The Rialto Theater. Details here.

Evolving away from self-indulgent metallic riffing—finding inspiration in hip hop and R&B grooves—interweaving guitar lines towards a more focused melodic sound, Polyphia bring the Look But Don’t Touch Tour to 191 Toole. Details here.

On “Beat Up Broke Down Town,” off Hangovers and Heartaches, this Tucson country singer mourns a loss—just maybe with an ice-cold beer in hand. “Those city light can’t hold you the way I can.” Drew Cooper is on the plaza at Hotel Congress. With Safford, AZ’s The Cole Trains, who celebrate the release of the Lucky Stars. An album full of Americana, country and a lil’ bit of rock ‘n’ roll. Details here.
