Miami may not be the center of the Americana music universe, but fans of the country-tinged umbrella-term genre will have to choose between two tempting, competing shows Saturday night. Those willing to drive north of the county line will get a double treat from coheadliners Lucinda Williams and Drive-By Truckers at Parker Playhouse. Down South, hometown legends the Mavericks will take the stage at the gorgeous Olympia Theater. And for something completely different, sail away with the kings and queens of Wigwood this weekend when they vamp onstage while miming songs by your favorite pop stars.

Here's your music calendar for January 28 through February 3. Stay ahead of all upcoming shows with New Times' Miami concert calendar.
