No matter how much work is on your to-do list, sometimes you just gotta turn up the music and take the week on like a boss.

While jamming Spotify deep inside your ear canal will definitely help you get through the long days, creeping deadlines, and disastrous inbox, nothing will make your week fly by quicker than live music.

So put on your big-girl pants and check out South Florida's five best music events this week, from the Main Event with New Kids on the Block at the BB&T Center to Third Eye Blind and Dashboard Confessional at downtown Miami's Bayfront Park.

The Main Event.
Sure, Jordan, Jonathan, Joey, Donnie, and Danny may all be well into their 40s, but no matter how old they get, NKOTB will always be New Kids on the Block. And this week, the former teenage heartthrobs will be making the ladies melt as they bring their ultrasmooth "Step by Step" moves to the BB&T for the Main Event with TLC and Nelly.

With New Kids on the Block, TLC, and Nelly. Thursday, June 4, 7 p.m., BB&T Center, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise; 954-835-8000; thebbtcenter.com. Tickets cost $25.75 to $89.50 plus fees via ticketmaster.com

Sepultura's 30-Year Anniversary Tour.
Celebrate three decades of raging "metal, hardcore, thrash, punk, and tribal" tuneage with Brazil's Sepultura. Make your eardrums explode as São Paulo's hardcore rockers tear up the stage at Culture Room with fellow metal heads Destruction, Arsis, the Last Ten Seconds of Life, and Starkill.

With Destruction, Arsis, the Last Ten Seconds of Life, and Starkill. Friday, June 5, 6:30 p.m. Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale; 954-564-1074; cultureroom.net. Tickets cost $22 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

The Business.
Party it up with the "Hardcore Hooligans" of the Business. Credited as one of the most influential punk rock bands of England's Oi! movement in the '80s, their 2003 hit "England 5, Germany 1," inspired by the 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifying match, became a national football, er, soccer, anthem in the English capital for some time. 

With the Attack, Martial Prowess, and Armageddon Man. Friday, June 5, 8 p.m. Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-832-9999; respectablestreet.com. Tickets cost $12 plus fees via ticketstoday.com, or $15 at the door. Ages 18 and up.

Third Eye Blind & Dashboard Confessional.
Throughout the years, Third Eye Blind has always lived a "Semi-Charmed Life." And now, the San Fran rockers are hitting the road with Boca's Dashboard Confessional who — after going on a hiatus — are "returning" to the music, as DC's frontman Chris Carrabba clarifies in a recent New Times interview. Whether a reunion or a return — whatever he wants to call it — hundreds of fans will be tearing up as their favorite "emo anthems" come to downtown Miami's Bayfront Park. 

Saturday, June 6, 7 p.m., Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-358-7550; bayfrontparkmiami.com. Tickets cost $30.75 to $45.25 plus fees via livenation.com.

Train’s Picasso at the Wheel Summer Tour.
Don't be fooled by "[Angels] In Blue Jeans." Like Train's Pat Monahan warns, she may steal all of your money and run off with a way older dude who looks an awful lot like Danny Trejo. Instead, play it safe and watch Monahan and his crew bring their Picasso at the Wheel Summer Tour to the 954 with fellow rockers the Fray and Matt Nathanson. Danny Trejo won't be there... we think.

With the Fray and Matt Nathanson. Sunday, June 7, 7 p.m., Coral Sky Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; cruzanamphitheatre.net. Tickets cost $11.75 to $72.50 plus fees via livenation.com.
