The best concerts coming to Orlando this week



Mild High Club

Sweet and sour, smooth and jagged, easy breezy psych nuggets from this Los Angeles ensemble. Undeniable.

9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, at Will's Pub, $12

MC Lars

In between coming off an East Coast tour and jetting off for a clutch of dates in the U.K., the inimitable MC plays an Orlando show with MegaRan and MC Frontalot.

7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, at Backbooth, $12

Pro Teens

Jangle-pop practitioners par excellence balance the ramshackle with the heartstring-ripping, just like the best of the class of (C)86 used to.

8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, at Henao Contemporary Center, $5

Tim McGraw & Faith Hill

Going back to George Jones and Tammy Wynette, we've always had a soft spot in our hearts for country music's couples, And though McGraw and Hill may lack the, ahem, pyrotechnics of Jones/Wynette, they're sure to put on a damn fine hoot.

8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Amway Center, $66.50-$116

Gracie and Rachel

Moody violin/piano soundclash of classical and pop moves from a New York duo that we're hoping against hope follow in the freak footsteps of John Cale.

6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22, at the Social, $15

Enigma Variations

An evening of Dvorák, Judd Greenstein and Elgar's cryptic "Enigma Variations," courtesy of the Orlando Phil, Eric Jacobsen and Colleen Blagov.

7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23, at the Plaza Live, $18-$54

Jason Lowenstein

Forgive us getting a little excitable about this, but holy shit, Jason Lowenstein of Sebadoh is playing a solo electric set as the opener for the mighty Grails?? Ye gods.

7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, at Backbooth, $12
