In Print: All Time Low, Lil Twist, Furthur, and More

With Ultra now an already-blurry memory, the hordes of electronic music tourists have pretty much cleared out. That leaves us locals to business as usual, and that doesn't meant the music stops. It just gets a little more pop over the next week, with the arrival of a couple of mega-high-profile tours. 

First up, leaders of the current pop-rock crop, All Time Low, bring their Blink-182-loving selves to Revolution tonight. With support from Hey Monday and the Summer Set, it's sure to be one to remember for the all-ages set. Read more about All Time Low at Revolution here

Next Tuesday, though, things get even bigger with a host of marquee names along for the ride on Lil Wayne's I'm Still Music tour, which lands locally at the BankAtlantic Center. Rick Ross, Travis Barker, and Mixmaster Mike all lend support to the Young Money/Cash Money crew, whose headlining artists, of course, include Nicki Minaj and the head of it all, Lil Wayne. 

But also joining Wayne onstage during his set are some of his up-and-comers, the most promising of which, currently, is 18-year-old Lil Twist. Read more about Lil Twist, and his role in the I'm Still Music Tour at the BankAtlantic Center, here

Those aren't the only two big shows this week, though, and we've highlighted a few others in our print edition. On Friday, local jam-fusio performers the People Upstairs celebrate their latest CD release at the Bamboo Room. Saturday afternoon, the music continues in Lake Worth with the Lake Worth Reggae Festival at Bryant Park, where headliners include the Wailers and Pato Banton. 

Still need more jams? Tuesday, moe. plays at Culture Room. And finally, next Wednesday, Grateful Dead spinoff Furthur performs at Mizner Park, and Aaron Lewis of Staind performs solo at Hard Rock Live.
