Our Music Picks 

Friday 

John Brown’s Body at the House of Blues: If those electro beats are too fast for you slow things down to some reggae over on Lansdowne. You’ll be groovin’ all night with this triple threat show, which also includes Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and Mighty Mystic. Tickets are $20.
 
Utada at the Paradise Rock Club: Even though she was born here Utada is definitely more of a household name in Japan where she has become one of the country’s greatest selling artists of all time. And sell she’s done again as this show is sold out.
 
AA Bondy at TT the Bear’s Place: If you folks wanna catch some folk, take in AA Bondy and a supporting cast that includes local folkster Willy Mason. Tickets are $10.
 
Reid Genauer at Harpers Ferry: But wait, there’s more… more folk that is, as Reid Genauer of Assembly of Dust rocks a solo show in Allston. Tickets are $18.

Sebastian Bach at the Palladium: The Skid Row frontman has always been about the rock but he’s rumored to be releasing a country-inspired album this year. See what kind of stylings he brings to Worcester for $25.
 
Aaron Lewis at Mohegan Sun Arena: Another frontman on the loose. The voice of Staind makes his way to Mohegan for a solo set, which Lewis is no stranger to, as he’ll also be inducted into the casino’s “Walk of Fame”. Tickets are still available and range in price from $35 to $50. 

Saturday 

Tea Leaf Green at the Paradise Rock Club: Tea Leaf Green just released a live album at the end of ’09 but you won’t need that this weekend when you can see the real loud, rowdy thing first hand. Tickets are $16.50.

The Dirty Truckers and Muck & the Mires at Church: One of the few rock bright spots in Boston this weekend will make these already hot tickets even hotter. Also on the bill are Watts and The Cretins. Tickets are $10.
 
Five Finger Death Punch and Shadows Fall at the Palladium: While the Boston music scene may be lacking some rock luster this weekend, Worcester delivers once again with this combo of metal favorites. Tickets are $22.

Joe Perry Project at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel: The Aerosmith drama has continued on since the last time Perry was in town but clearly the legendary axeman is still all business, treating the hometown area to another rockin’ blues show. Tickets are $30. Local favorites The Neighborhoods open the show.

Marc Cohn and Suzanne Vega at the Capital Center: Cohn and Vega have toured together for years now but have managed to keep things fresh, and with Vega releasing a new album of re-interpretations of her work next week, you can be assured to hear something fresh once again. Tickets for the in Concord, New Hampshire are still available and range in price from $35 to $45. 

Sunday 

Take the night off and watch the Super Bowl. You have no choice if you are looking for live music – but at least The Who are playing at Halftime.
