We've got jumbles of jazz, including a two-night stand from the always-popular Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express. Classic rock heads get ready: The original lineup of Asia returns. And Yellowcard, the violin-toting, pop punkers return for an acoustic show. (At least it’ll be quieter). Avril Lavigne tickets are on sale for cheap. And Dax Riggs is playing Akron twice. Seriously.
