The beaches will be swarmed with dancing and drinking merrymakers today, because the Tortuga Music Festival ends in Fort Lauderdale and Adam Lambert performs at the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade. Lambert's performance is free for parade-watchers who stay until 8 p.m. (MiamiBeachGayPride.com for details). Sunday's Tortuga tickets cost $110.75 at TortugaMusicFestival.com.
Then, the week's concerts will span multiple genres: Papa Roach's early-2000s angst-rock will arrive Tuesday at Revolution Live ($35.25, Ticketmaster.com); Reba McEntire hits Hard Rock Live Friday and Saturday with her rodeo-born country music ($89.50-$164.50, Ticketmaster.com); and the sound of Dick Dale's surf guitar will fill the Culture Room Saturday ($26.25, Ticketmaser.com).
Saturday is also Record Store Day, and Revolution Live will host the Block x Blog Festival, featuring neo-disco music by Holy Ghost and a lineup of local indie artists.
Next weekend will bring a dose of new and underground hip-hop to town, as well. Rihanna's Saturday-night show at the BB&T Center will be prefaced by a set from YouTube-generation rapper A$AP Rocky ($50.50-$108.25, Ticketmaster.com). Rocky's contemporary Smoke DZA will play Revolution Live on Friday ($31.90, Ticketmaster.com). And the Gorillaz's Del the Funky Homosapien will play a low-key show at Eve in downtown Miami ($25.10-$46.95, MiamiEve.com).Copyright © 2015, CT Now
