Still recovering from the uhntz-uhntz buzz of Winter Music Conference, Miami Music Week, and Ultra Music Festival?

Luckily for you, there's a cure for that: even more music. And while the kandi masks, neon pasties, and flower crowns have long been put away, the tuneage never ends in the Magic City.

That's why we're hooking you up with this week's five best concerts. Check 'em out, from Arcade Fire's Win Butler AKA DJ Windows 98 at Bardot to Tune-Yards at Grand Central to Taking Back Sunday at Revolution Live.

DJ Windows 98. Win Butler of Arcade Fire. Friday, April 3, 10 p.m. Bardot, 3456 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-576-7750; bardotmiami.com. Tickets cost $24 to $30 plus fees via showclix.com. Ages 21 and up. Leave it up to the musical genius of Arcade Fire's Win Butler AKA DJ Windows 98 to create a dope mix of Kanye West's "Jesus Walks" and Beck's "Loser." Sheer. Perfection. 

Tune-Yards. With Son Lux. Presented by Poplife. Saturday, April 4, 8 p.m. Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $20 to $25 plus fees via ticketfly.com. All ages. Ain't no thing like the "Real Thing." And if there's an artist who knows that to be true, it's Tune-Yards' Merrill Garbus. The fact alone that the band's 2009 debut album, Bird-Brains was recorded using a handheld voice recorder is proof enough, but it's only by seeing Garbus and her crew live that you can really appreciate the realness behind the beats. 

R&B Love Fest. With Bell Biv Devoe, K-Ci & JoJo, Keith Sweat, and El Debarge. Saturday, April 4, 7 p.m. BankUnited Center, 1245 Dauer Dr., Coral Gables; 305-284-8686; bankunitedcenter.com.
