The commodification of pop-rock in the ’80s owes plenty to the likes of Pat Benatar. Between her vocal range and rock-and-roll attitude, hits like “Heartbreaker” and “Love Is a Battlefield” have become synonymous with the era that brought us “Thriller” and “Like a Virgin.” While new wave was breaking ground, she was a catalyst in bringing a rock edge to pop music, combining distorted guitar riffs with synths and electronic drum beats. Three decades later, Benatar is still wowing audiences alongside husband, guitarist/songwriter Neil Giraldo. $35-$100, 7:30pm Monday, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org.
