Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett 
Brace yourself for a night of Songs and Stories as Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett top off their 13-city tour at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts. Back in 2015, Gill and Lovett joined musical forces for a four-day mini-tour where the two country music giants performed solo sets, swapped stories, and performed several duets. This past February, the two reunited for a second Songs and Stories Tour. And this week, they'll be hitting up the 954 with their Grammy award-winning hits. 

Songs and Stories Tour. Tuesday, March 1, 7:30 p.m. Coral Springs Center for the Arts, 2855 Coral Springs Drive, Coral Springs; 954-344-5999; coralspringscenterforthearts.com. Tickets cost $71.55 to $82.15 plus fees via coralspringscenterforthearts.com.

New Found Glory
As South Floridians, we wouldn't really consider Florida a prime vacation destination for locals. But hometown heroes New Found Glory – who reign from the streets of Coral Springs – are getting ready for some fun in the Sunshine State. Join them as they bring a double dose of pop punk to SoFla with gigs at Culture Room on Thursday and Miami's Churchill's Pub on Friday.

Florida Vacation Tour with Protagonist. Thursday, March 3, 7:30 p.m. Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale; 954-564-1074; cultureroom.net. Tickets cost $28 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

Moody Blues
Birmingham's Moody Blues want to make "Your Wildest Dreams" come true. And as a band that has earned 18 platinum and gold albums, chances are the rockers will have you dreaming in color. So jam with Graeme Edge, Justin Hayward, and John Lodge as the trio brings their Fly Me High Tour to the Hard Rock Live.

Fly Me High Tour. Thursday, March 3, 8 p.m. Hard Rock Live, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood; 954-797-5531; hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com. Tickets cost $55 to $75 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

Jellyfish Brothers 
"Silly Boi[s]" and Hyper Light Drifter[s] – that's what you'll be in for when Miami's Jellyfish Brothers rock the stage at Respectable Street for Flaunt. "We wanted to take electronics and add a lot of attitude to it," Greg Alvarez told our sister paper, the Miami New Times, about the band's album Hyper Light Drifter last year. "So it's more experimental, but it's also a lot more pop. Every song has a lot of lyrics, really high up in the mix. But there are also moments of pure noise." Joined by fellow 305 noisemakers Montage, the Jellyfish Bros will take West Palm Beach on one hell of a musical ride.

With Montage. Presented by Flaunt. Thursday, March 3, 11 p.m. Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-832-9999; respectablestreet.com. Admission is free. Ages 21 and up.

Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival
"Burning Man is a reference point for what we're trying to accomplish," Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival cofounder Paul Peck told New Times back in December. "We really want this to be a hub for a really diverse community." As a three-day music fest with acts ranging from Mumford & Sons to Kendrick Lamar to Skrillex to Hall and Oates, we have no doubt the inaugural music and arts festival will accomplish just that.  

With Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, Bassnectar, Robert Plant & the Sensational Shape Shifters, Odesza, Daryl Hall and John Oates, the Avett Brothers, Future, Miguel, Fetty Wap, Ween, Big Grams (Big Boi + Phantogram), and more. Friday to Sunday, March 4 to 6. Sunshine Grove, 12517 NE 91st Ave., Okeechobee. Tickets cost $259.50 to $599 via eventbrite.com. Visit okeechobeefest.com.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
From NOLA to Fort Lawdy, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue is bringing their "hard-edged funk, hip-hop beats, rock dynamics, and improvisation" to Revolution Live. With the trombone skills of a brass prodigy, Trombone Shorty will no doubt turn the funk up.

With the Soul Rebels. Friday, March 4, 8 p.m. Revolution Live, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-449-1025; jointherevolution.net. Tickets cost $27 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

103.1 WIRK's Rib Round Up
Hunter Hayes may "Want Crazy," and this week the 24-year-old heartthrob will get exactly what he wants at 103.1 WIRK's Rib Round Up. Joined by fellow country superstars Frankie Ballard, Parmalee, Michael Ray, Granger Smith, Dylan Scott, and Chris Lane, Hayes will be surrounded by the diehard fandom of South Florida's wildest country fanatics. But don't take our word for it – witness the madness for yourself at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre.

With Hunter Hayes, Frankie Ballard, Parmalee, Michael Ray, Granger Smith, Dylan Scott, and Chris Lane. Saturday, March 5, noon. Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; ticketmaster.com. Tickets cost $25 to $50 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

Machine Gun Kelly
For those who believe that rock and rap are two separate worlds, Machine Gun Kelly has a message for you: "You're ignorant." Sure, those are some strong words, but coming from a guy who was signed by Diddy, covered XXL magazine, and whose track, "Invincible," has been used as theme song by both the NFL and the WWE, homeboy knows a thing or two about the industry. Check him out as he crashes Club Cinema this week.

Saturday, March 5, 9 p.m. Club Cinema, 3251 N. Federal Highway, Lighthouse Point; 954-785-5225; clubcinema.electrostub.com. Tickets cost $40 to $50 plus fees via clubcinema.electrostub.com
