Five Best Music Events in South Florida This Week
Dave Matthews Band plays two nights at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre this week.
Dave Matthews Band
Love them or hate them, it's not officially summer till the Dave Matthews Band comes crashin' into town. As expressed by New Times' biggest DMB fan and six-year concert vet: "You'll never see a band move a crowd like they do or tease fans expecting one song, then quickly move onto another. Not only is every show different but every song is played differently." That's why Dave Matthews and his crew are playing two nights at the Coral Sky Amp, which is now the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre.
Friday and Saturday, July 31 and August 1, 7 p.m. Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre (Formerly the Coral Sky Amphitheatre), 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $31.50 to $76 plus fees via livenation.com.

"You'll Never Know" what you'll discover at a Cocodrills rager. A new-found love for techno? An insatiable urge to fist pump?
