When three representatives of very different genres have shows on the same day, it's a good day for music in South Florida. Today, Lil Wayne brings the America's Most Wanted Tour to the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, with rappers T.I., Tyga and G-Eazy in tow. ($30-$110, LiveNation.com

Also on Sunday night, the progressive-ska rock of the RX Bandits will return to Fort Lauderdale's Culture Room for the band's 10 Year Resignation Anniversary Tour, celebrating a decade since the release of the album "Resignation." ($20.90, Ticketmaster.comAnd in Miami, Uruguay's La Vela Puerca will bring a Latin-rock-influenced brand of ska to Grand Central. ($27-$30 plus fees, GrandCentralMiami.com The show is part of the group's U.S. debut. Catch an interview with the band at SouthFlorida.com/music.

Another South American ensemble will perform Thursday at PAX: From Colombia, La MiniTK del Miedo imports "gothic cumbia," which is less cumbia than gothic, and features industrial scratch-mixes, an occasional cowbell, and drawling vocals that would make Trent Reznor proud. ($10, PAXMiami.com

A more-familiar sound will cradle the ears of Cruzan patrons Friday and Saturday, when the Dave Matthews Band comes to town. ($52.85-$89.70, LiveNation.comAlternatively, you can see Chaka Khan perform at the James L. Knight Center Saturday night. ($74-$106.50, Ticketmaster.com
