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. Tickets cost $5.

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.
