Alternative-rock band Incubus has plans to tour this summer in support of a new greatest-hits album, Moments and Melodies, set for release on June 16. A couple of months later, on Sunday, August 9, you can catch the band at Merriweather Post Pavilion. The Duke Spirit will open; tickets ($35 to $45) are now on sale.
The New Kids on the Block aren’t kids anymore, and neither are their fans. The now grown-up boy band rediscovered its fans after releasing an album last September for the first time in 15 years. The comeback continues with the band’s Full Service tour, where the winners of the first season of America’s Best Dance Crew, the Jabbawockeez, will open the show. NKOTB comes to Nissan Pavilion on Sunday, June 7. Tickets ($25 to $79) went on sale Saturday.
The Atlanta-based band the Black Lips will perform at Sonar in Baltimore on Friday, June 19. The band’s been known to put on a pretty crazy show, though a performance last March at the Black Cat proved to be a little more subdued than usual. Tickets ($16) to the upcoming show went on sale Friday.
The R&B quintet Mint Condition has been known for combining soul, jazz, and Latin sounds to create popular ballads for the last 18 years. The group recently lined up a show at Rams Head on Friday, May 22. Tickets ($35) are now on sale.
