Needtobreathe. South Carolina band Needtobreathe has been staying busy since the release of its 2006 debut, Daylight. Steadily releasing studio records every year or two since then, the band went a different route last year with the release of its first ever fully acoustic album, Acoustic Live Vol. 1. In that same spirit, the band will play an entirely acoustic set at Parker Playhouse this week. 7 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at Parker Playhouse, 707 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-462-0222; ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $47.50 to $64.50.

Goth Miami band Astari Nite will open. 8 p.m. Friday, March 8, at Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale; 954-564-1074; ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $27.

Scott Yoder. Last time gender-bending Seattle rocker Scott Yoder played West Palm Beach, he preceded his Bumblefest set with a show at Miami's Churchill's Pub. He must have liked South Florida, because he's back from the Northwest just six months later. This time he's bringing along Italian collective Plastic Man, Gainesville's Pearl and the Oysters, and Boynton Beach's DirtBike. 8 p.m. Friday, March 8, at Voltaire, 526 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-408-5603; ticketfly.com.

Blake Shelton. You've seen him bickering with Adam Levine on NBC's The Voice and you probably know he's dating Gwen Stefani. But country fans best know Blake Shelton for his no-frills, uncomplicated approach to radio-friendly pop country. Expect to hear fan favorites "God Gave Me You," "Honey Bee," and "I Lived It" from his latest album, Texoma Shore. 7 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at BB&T Center, 1 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise; 954-835-7000; ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $25 to $125.
