The best concerts coming to Orlando this week



J. Balvin

The Colombian reggaeton demigod has been referred to as the "Drake of reggaeton," but don't allow clumsy pop hyperbole distract you from the undeniability of Balvin's songwriting Midas touch.

8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11, at Hard Rock Live, $65-$75

Chris Isaak

Actor and noir-inclined rockabilly singer Isaak is sure to melt hearts upon the first reverbed notes of the immortal "Wicked Game."

8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, at Hard Rock Live, $43-$187

The Devil Wears Prada

Metalcore act still stands tall and musically valid, but wayyyy more importantly, did you know that they devised their own small-batch coffee with Metric Coffee out of Chicago??

6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at the Plaza Live, $20-$27.50


Three imaginary boys create urgent, youthful postpunk – this is not about the Cure in the late '70s, this is about the very enjoyable Taxi from Miami in 2017.

10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at Uncle Lou's, donations encouraged

Ricardo Arjona

Rough-and-tumble Guatemalan singer-songwriter has sold roughly 40 million albums worth of his Latin-pop/rock anthems. He's touring behind his 15th (!) album, Circo Soledad.

8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, at the Amway Center, $51-$150


Norwegian free jazz upstarts play a last-minute show downtown. Don't let something trivial like parking worries deter you from this ensemble's propulsive hybrid of free improv and fierce swing. 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 16, at Gallery at Avalon Island, donations encouraged

Dueling Pianos

What's better than one piano? Two! See two pianos face off in a (non) death match at Ace Cafe. Gratis!

8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, at Ace Cafe, free
