Allman Betts Band

Allman Betts

The term “nepo baby” gets thrown around in show business a lot these days. Two sons of southern rock greats (Greg Allman and Dickie Betts) are doing it right, honoring and expanding the legacy of southern roots rock (Devon Allman and Duane Betts with Berry Duane Oakley). The Allman Betts Band arrives at the Arcada Theatre on Friday, May 31. Expect to hear a healthy dose of Allman Brothers classics as well as music from their two excellent albums,
Down to the River and Bless Your Heart. Tickets here.

Japanese noise rock duo Melt-Banana is making their grand return this year with 3+5, their first new album in 11 years. Though the album won’t arrive until later this year, fans can get a preview of what’s in store when Melt-Banana plays Reggie’s this Saturday, June 1, at 7:30 PM. Grab tickets here.

When The Damned formed back in 1976, they had no idea of the impact they would make on rock music. Hailed as pioneers of London’s punk rock scene, the band’s ghoulish appearance, dark lyrics, and Dave Vanian’s velvety vocals were a major influence on the goth scene. You can see these legends in action when they play Concord Music Hall with special guests, The Dictators, this Sunday, June 2nd, at 7 PM. Tickets are available here.

If you’ve been praying to have more funk in your life, then the Godfather of Funk is coming to answer your prayers. The often-imitated, never-duplicated George Clinton shows that funk knows no age. At 82, the musician is still touring, performing, and, most importantly, getting his groove on. Parliament Funkadelic and Geroge Clinton will perform two nights at Outset on June 1st and 2nd. Get tickets while you still can here.
