Lifestyle Communities Pavilion (originally PromoWest Pavilion) celebrates its 10th anniversary with special guests Incubus (Young the Giant opening) on Tuesday, Aug. 30. The arty modern rockers were one of the first acts to play the venue when it opened, so the booking is apt.

BONUS: Look up "late-summer chillin'" in the dictionary (yes, we know it's probably not actually in a dictionary) and you just might find a Friday night, outdoor show with Slightly Stoopid in the definition.
Joined by Rebelution, Shwayze and Cisco Adler, Slightly Stoopid plays Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Friday, Aug. 26. Tickets are $25/$30. Call 1-800-745-3000.
Don Williams might not be who you'd play for an alien come to Earth who asked about traditional country music -- the Georges (Jones and Strait) come to mind -- but there's no reason you couldn't.
Williams is both classic and classy, boasting a warm baritone that evokes strength in its gentleness -- perfect for telling the kind of stories you find on Good Ole Boys Like Me, I Believe in You and Tulsa Time.
Williams takes the Midland Theatre Stage in Newark on Saturday, Aug. 27. Bryan Lewis opens.Tickets are $60-$30. Call (740) 345-LIVE.
We could not choose between the following two female-named bands headed to town in the coming days, so not only did we not make a choice, we opted to combine them in one Fab entry.
Lo-fi chamber popsters Margot and the Nuclear So and So's seek to create modern music at once grand and minimalist -- and obtuse. It's extra cool because no one in the band is named Margot.
The band plays The Basement Saturday, Aug. 27. Tickets are $12/$14. Call 1-800-745-3000.
The cool thing to watch with young Colorado folkie Danielle Anderson -- stage name Danielle Ate the Sandwich, which we love -- is to see how well she career-shifts from quirky YouTube fascination to bonafide indie folk singer. Working primarily on ukulele, Danielle is cute and appealing while simultaneously sophisticated.
She plays Travona Coffee House Tuesday, Aug. 30. Suggested donation is $5. Call (614) 725-4151.
Georgia's Cartel plies the kind of melodic pop-rock that fans of Panic at the Disco, New Found Glory and/or Motion City Soundtrack find so endearing.
So, if you're a fan of one of those bands -- or others of their ilk -- and you're not dialed in to this quintet, head to The Basement Monday, Aug. 29.Tickets are $13/$15 Call 1-800-745-3000.
Don't sweat too much over figuring out whether Peter Bjorn & John is the band's name or the band members' names (hint: It's both). Just know that it cleverly abbreviates to PB&J.
The Stockholm, Sweden-based trio is an indie-hipster outfit best-known for its 2006 tune Young Folks -- you know, that groovy and ominous whistling tune? In truth, it's not The Beat's cup of tea, but it's cool and trippy enough that if you held us captive long enough, we might start to enjoy it.
Check 'em out Tuesday, Aug. 30, at the Newport Music Hall. Tickets are $15.50/$17. Call 1-800-745-3000.
