Or­ga­niz­ers get­ting their acts to­gether

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - SPOTLIGHT - By Phillip Valys

Can we get back to nor­mal al­ready?

Less than a week af­ter Hur­ri­cane Irma left mil­lions of South Florid­i­ans hot and pow­er­less, ma­jor con­certs and other events will take place, each of­fer­ing a cool, cli­mate-con­trolled break from the storm’s af­ter­math.

As of Wed­nes­day, or­ga­niz­ers say the fol­low­ing events will go on as sched­uled.

“Within Gen­res”

Through Aug. 19, 2018, at Perez Art Mu­seum Miami, 1103 Bis­cayne Blvd.; free on Sept. 15, $12-$16 there­after; 305-375-3000 or PAMM.org

The Perez Art Mu­seum Miami sus­tained no dam­age to its build­ing, a mu­seum spokesper­son said Wed­nes­day, and was to re­open at 10 a.m. on Thurs­day. In­clud­ing works from the 18th and 19th cen­turies, PAMM’s re­cent ex­hibit “Within Gen­res” is an un­com­mon show for the con­tem­po­rary-artlean­ing mu­seum, and fea­tures a cross-sec­tion of paint­ings bro­ken into five gen­res: still life, land­scape, scenes of ev­ery­day life, por­trai­ture and his­tory paint­ing.

“Within Gen­res” is on dis­play at the Perez Art Mu­seum Miami.

Depeche Mode

7:30 p.m. to­day at Amer­i­canAir­lines Arena, 601Bis­cayne Blvd., Miami; $35-$371; 786-777-1000 or AAArena.com and Tick­et­mas­ter.com

The Bri­tish synth-rock trio’s ur­gent new al­bum, “Spirit,” marks a po­lit­i­cal de­par­ture for a band still at the height of their sonic skills, with brood­ing, icy songs that call for a revo­lu­tion while slam­ming big­ots for “turn­ing back our his­tory.” Long­time Depeche Mode fans will ap­pre­ci­ate hear­ing Dave Ga­han and com­pany’s more in­tro­spec­tive crowd-pleasers, such as “Peo­ple Are Peo­ple,” “En­joy the Si­lence” and “World in My Eyes.” All have ap­peared on the band’s re­cent set lists.

Brad Pais­ley

7 p.m. to­day at Coral Sky Am­phithe­ater, 601-7 Sans­burys Way, West Palm Beach; $20-$184; 561-795-8883 or Live­Na­tion.com

Three days af­ter he per­formed a cover of the Bea­tles’ “With a Lit­tle Help From My Friends” on the tele­vised spe­cial “Hand in Hand: ABen­e­fit for Hur­ri­cane Re­lief Telethon,” coun­try star Pais­ley re­turns to Coral Sky for the first time since Oc­to­ber 2015. The show will no doubt lean on the so­cial cri­tiques that de­fine his chart-top­ping 11th stu­dio al­bum, “Love and War,” which in­cludes col­lab­o­ra­tions with rap­per Tim- ba­land (the blue­grass-charged “Grey Goose Chase”) and John Fogerty (the ti­tle track, which tack­les the mis­treat­ment of mil­i­tary vets.) Chase Bryant and Dustin Lynch will open.

Clint Black

7 p.m. Satur­day at Pom­pano Beach Am­phithe­ater, 1801 NE Sixth St.; $39-$209; 954-519-5500 or TheAm­pPom­pano.org and Tick­et­mas­ter.com

Still tour­ing be­hind his 2015 al­bum “On Pur­pose,” New Jersey­born coun­try trou­ba­dour Black wears pop, rock, and soul in­flu­ences on his sleeve, and will come bear­ing No. 1 hits such as “Burn One Down”, “When I Said I Do”, “Like the Rain” and “One Emo­tion.”

Steven Wright

8 p.m. Satur­day at Parker Play­house, 707 NE Eighth St., Fort Laud­erdale; $ 27.50-$ 47.50; 954-462-0222 or BrowardCen­ter.org and Tick­et­mas­ter.com

Al­though the co­me­dian with the mono­tone was last spot­ted on Louis C.K.’s Pe­abody Award-win­ning web se­ries “Ho­race and Pete” in 2016, Wright has led a long but sur­pris­ingly un­pro­lific ca­reer as a standup co­me­dian. He’s re­leased a scant two com­edy al­bums (1985’s Grammy-nom­i­nated “I Have a Pony” and 2007’s “I Still Have a Pony”), but he’s in­flu­enced co­me­di­ans such as Zach Gal­i­fi­anakis and the late Mitch Hed­berg.

Mum­ford and Sons

7:30 p.m. Tues­day at Amer­i­canAir­lines Arena, 601Bis­cayne Blvd., Miami; $41-$61; 786-777-1250 or AAArena.com and Tick­et­mas­ter.com

The Bri­tish in­die-rock quar­tet is still adding pol­ish to their forth­com­ing, still-un­ti­tled al­bum (the fol­low- up to 2015’s “Wilder Mind”), but fans ea­ger for new Mum­ford can take so­lace in a Fe­bru­ary con­cert film, “Live From South Africa: Dust and Thun­der.” We’re also hop­ing early hits “I Will Wait” and “The Cave” make an ap­pear­ance at the AAA, if only to re­cap­ture the pas­sion­ate set the band de­liv­ered at the 2016 Okee­chobee Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Sammy Hagar and the Cir­cle

7 p.m. Tues­day at Pom­pano Beach Am­phithe­ater, 1806 NE Sixth St.; $49-$226; 954-519-5500 or TheAm­pPom­pano.org and Tick­et­mas­ter.com

Still hold­ing out for a Van Halen re­union, Hagar and his su­per­group, the Cir­cle (fea­tur­ing for­mer Van Halen bassist Michael An­thony, Boca Ra­ton drum­mer Ja­son Bon­ham and gui­tarist Vic John­son) will come bear­ing mu­sic old and new. Col­lec­tive Soul and An­drew Hagar will open.

“Build­ing the Wall”

Sept. 21-Oct. 8 at Adri­enne Ar­sht Cen­ter, 1300 Bis­cayne Blvd., Miami; $34; 305-949-6722 or Ar­shtCen­ter.org

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has im­posed mar­tial law in New York in play­wright Robert Schenkkan’s dystopian play, set in 2019 af­ter a ra­di­a­tion in­ci­dent in Times Square. The two-char­ac­ter play, which tack­les ter­ror­ism and the purg­ing of im­mi­grants from Amer­ica, cen­ters on Rick, the su­per­vi­sor of a pri­vate prison who’s been ar­rested for undis­closed crimes, and Glo­ria, a his­tory pro­fes­sor who wants to un­der­stand Rick’s ac­tions.
