Who says rock is dead? Rock 'n' roll all night when Kiss brings its (alleged!) farewell tour to the BB&T Center this Tuesday. Then keep the volume turned up to 11 when Torche plays Las Rosas Saturday night. For you eternal teeny boppers, the Jonas Brothers kick off their reunion tour at the American Airlines Arena Wednesday night. And if you're searching for local talent, look no further than Dracula's Sunday-afternoon set at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Here's your music calendar for August 5 through 11. Stay ahead of all upcoming shows with New Times' Miami concert calendar.
