The Best Concerts in Miami This Week

It's shaping up to be another wet week in South Florida, so you'll probably want to prioritize indoor shows. But there's likely no escaping the rain at the biggest concert of the week: Top Dawg Entertainment's Championship Tour. The show will offer a stacked lineup of the label's superstars and rising stars, including Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and Schoolboy Q, at Coral Sky Amphitheatre this Wednesday, when the forecast is about a 50 percent chance of rain for the start time.

Not in the mood to brave some May showers? Hit this month's edition of the Listening Den, with performances by Kids and Patrick & the Swayzees at Ace Props, off NW 79th Street. Just be sure to mute your phone and idle conversation — these shows are all about restoring the intimate music-listening experiences of yesteryear. Sounds like the cure for the rainy-day blues.

Here's your music calendar for this week. Stay ahead of all upcoming shows with New Times' Miami concert calendar.
