From Palmfest to Arena Pop-Punk, This Week’s Complete Concert Calendar Has the Proverbial ‘It All’

Pretty much all the music within earshot this week.

11:48 AM CDT on July 26, 2022

Former young person Avril Lavigne will be in St. Paul this week.

It's been a quiet year for arena shows, but this week sees the arrival of pop-punk Machine Gun Kelly, country nice guy Alan Jackson, and the mouthiest Pink Floydster, Roger Waters. The real fun is just as likely to be had over at Palmer's, where a three-day Palmfest collects a bunch of great local rock.
