Lisa Lampanelli

Sat., June 23

Known for her racy and controversial style of comedy, Lisa Lampanelli originally worked as a journalist before she began her standup career in New York in the early '90s. She got her big break at the New York Friars Club roast of Chevy Chase in 2002 and has roasted Donald Trump, who was a reality TV show star at the time. Tonight's show marks her last gig before she takes a year off. She performs at 8 at the Ohio Theatre. Tickets are $45. (Niesel)

Sat., June 23

An annual event that draws thousands to the Cleveland Museum of Art to hear exotic bands that normally don't come through town, Solstice has become the museum's signature summer event. Tonight's installment takes place at 8 p.m. The lineup includes the Moroccan-born Hatim Belyamani (aka HAT), a guy who makes music based on filming and remixing the sounds and images of his native country's Arabic, Amazigh and sub-Saharan African origins; and Hello Psychaleppo, the brainchild of young Syrian music producer Samer Saem Eldahr, who draws from dubstep, drum and bass, electro and trip-hop to create "a journey away from boundaries of style." The lineup also includes LADAMA, a group of four women from across the Americas who produce pop and soul-infused songs that they sing in Spanish, English and Portuguese; and Ravid Kahalani's Yemen Blues, a band that brings a "polyglot mix of music from Yemen and West Africa." As always, CMA tickets sold out months ago; secondary markets could help. (Niesel)

Jesse Dayton

Sat., June 23

Singer-songwriter Jesse Dayton recorded his latest album, The Outsider, while on tour, working with Grammy Award-winning engineer/producer Vance Powell (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and Jack White). Raw electric guitars drive a redneck rock tune such as "Hurtin' Behind the Pine Curtain," a tune that shows off his gruff vocals. He performs today at 1 p.m. at the Rock Hall. Consult the website for ticket prices. (Niesel)

Brad Wenzel

Sun., June 24

Comedian Brad Wenzel once started a routine on Conan by saying, "Let's get to the issues." He then proceeded to make fun of "little people" and his own outdated choice of clothing (he likes flannel shirts and landlines). Wenzel doesn't write narrative jokes; rather, he delivers a series of off-kilter one-liners in a monotone voice. He performs tonight at Hilarities 4th Street Theatre. Consult the website for the time and ticket prices. (Niesel)

Petal/Camp Cope

Fri., June 22, 7 p.m.

Petal is the kind of artist you stumble upon on Spotify and immediately add to all your latest playlists. The Pennsylvania native possesses the old-school elegance of Lily Allen or Lana Del Rey’s vocals but also the too-cool-for-you rock star charm of Speedy Ortiz’s lead singer, Sadie Dupuis. Petal’s new album, “Magic Gone,” has many highlights. “Stardust,” is a lyrical masterpiece that boasts her classically trained vocals. While her perfectly controlled voice has a real power to it, her words show she’s just as unsure as the rest of us. “Now we’re living in shitty apartments with mismatched dishes, unlike our parents/Maybe we’d make good parents?/Maybe not, I can’t say/I can’t say I didn’t love you,” she sings. “Tightrope” is a light-weight tune with more focus on the catchy instrumentals. Petal rounds out the trifecta with “Better Than You” and ditches her indie roots for a straight up rock ’n’ roll vibe. (Halle Weber) $13 ADV, $15 DOS

Against Me/Murder by Death/The Sidekicks

Fri., June 22, 7 p.m.

Plenty of punk bands have succeeded purely because they bring the noise. Against Me! does that and the some. Much like the Ramones and the Clash, the band has left its mark because of the great songs it writes. Four years ago at House of Blues, the group kicked off the Alternative Press Music Awards with an invigorating show that really got the mosh pit going. We still consider the band's driving tune “I Was a Teenage Anarchist” to be one of the great punk anthems of all time. Tonight's show supports its latest studio album, 2106's highly personal Shape Shift With Me. Singer Laura Jane Grace wrote the songs on the album, a loose concept album about traveling the world, from what she calls a “trans perspective.” Expect tonight's concert to be an inspiring affair. (Niesel) $29.50 ADV/$35 DOS
