Considering we’re still waiting on spring to really start, it’s hard to believe that summer—and concert tour season—is just around the corner. Tickets for most of the big lineups have already gone on sale, but here are a few shows you can snag seats for this week.

Country superstar Tim McGraw’s Emotional Traffic tour hits Jiffy Lube Live August 13. He’ll be joined by twangy up-and-comers Luke Bryan and the Band Perry. Tickets ($29.75 to $69.75) go on sale Friday on LiveNation.

His on-screen alter ego may be busy serenading Gwyneth Paltrow, but Glee star Matthew Morrison will be all ours when he performs at DAR Constitution Hall July 6. We’re willing to bet at least one Journey cover will be on the set list. Tickets ($43.50 to $63.50) go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster.

Fans of Parks and Recreation, take note—Aziz Ansari is bringing his Dangerously Delicious tour to the Warner Theatre June 17. The popular stand-up comic will play two shows that night: one at 7 and one at 10. Tickets ($35) go on sale Friday at 10 through LiveNation .

Tickets for Wolf Trap’s summer season went on sale last week, but you can still snag seats to plenty of good shows—including Bright Eyes, Alison Krauss, and Elvis Costello. You can order tickets from Wolf Trap’s site.

Also still up for grabs are many of the Kennedy Center’s  summer shows. We expect Broadway hits Wicked and Follies to fill up quickly, so be sure to order your tickets well in advance. They’re available directly from the Kennedy Center.

The British-based dance-punk outfit Friendly Fires is set to play the 9:30 Club May 26. Tickets ($17.50) go on sale on Thursday at 10 through TicketFly.

Finally, you’ll also be able to see Glasvegas at Black Cat  May 24. The group’s latest album, Euphoric/HeartBreak, was released last week. Tickets are $16 and go on sale at TicketAlternative Friday at 10.
