This week, an onslaught of 56 new concerts. Radiohead will rock Blossom, and the reunited Stone Temple Pilots will Stone-Temple pummel Playhouse Square’s State Theatre. Sarah Bareilles has been added to the Maroon 5/Counting Crowes show – you know, the girl who sings “Love Song” from that Rhapsody commercial. Led Zep frontman Robert Plant will be joined by Alison Kraus and a band led by T-Bone Burnett. And as far as the rest go, where to start? Read on for a full rundown of new shows, cancellations, and altered lineups. And tune in every Tuesday for more of the same. – D.X. Ferris
