They released their most recent studio production, El Camino, last December. Tickets ($40 to $55) go on sale Friday, March 16, at 10 AM through Ticketfly.

If you haven’t gotten enough of the frat-driven glam-rock revival over the past few years, find a fix with Scorpions this summer.

Tickets ($45 to $75) are go on sale Friday, March 16, at 10 AM through Ticketfly.

Tune-Yards, the music project fronted by New England native  Merrill Garbus, comes to Merriweather Post Pavilion 9:30 Club on Sunday, June 3. Garbus creates her distinctive sound using looping devices to layer her songs with various instruments including the ukelele. Tickets ($20) are on sale now through Ticketfly.

California-based ’90s nu metal powerhouse Korn come to the Fillmore Silver Spring on Friday, May 4. (Regrettably, our style doesn’t permit us to write the iconic, Toys ’R’ Us–esque backward “R” in their name.) Surprisingly enough, the band have nabbed two Grammys for their singles “Freak on a Leash” and “Here to Stay.” Their tenth studio album, The Path of Totality, was released in digital format in May 2011. Tickets ($45) go on sale Friday, March 16, at 10 AM through Live Nation.
