Summer Fun Guide 2012: Three to See: Rock Concerts
Check out this trio of other summer rock concerts that get our endorsement.
July 6 // Evans Amphitheater
Fiona Apple's 1996 debut Tidal and its single "Criminal" won the singer a Grammy at age 19. She went on to release acclaimed albums such as When the Pawn ... and Extraordinary Machines. This summer brings a new album, The Idler Wheel ..., and a stop at Cain Park with Blake Miller. 8 p.m., cainpark.com
Aug. 6 // Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica
Jane's Addiction's original sound and blistering live show influenced scores of '90s alternative bands. They're touring this summer in support of The Great Escape Artist with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek on bass and Mute Math opening. 7:30 p.m., livenation.com
Aug. 16 // Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica
Rising out of San Francisco, Train scored in 1999 with "Sweet Virginia" and in 2001 with "Drops of Jupiter" before "Hey, Soul Sister" blasted the trio back onto the charts eight years later. With a live show that matches the trio's polished pop tunes, it's a great summer choice, especially with openers Mat Kearney and Andy Grammer. 7 p.m., livenation.com
