10 Shows to See This Weekend

Page 9 of 10

Saturday, July 30

The Mix 96.1 returns with its annual showcase of talented, young names in pop. From Memphis, 18-year-old Jacob Whitesides sounds like John Mayer dropped into the blue-eyed, Southern soul tradition — very clean, very detail-oriented and ready to break hearts. First-generation Albanian-American star Bebe Rexha charted a major hit with “Me, Myself and I,” a solipsistic banger with G-Eazy. A follow-up with Nicki Minaj, “No Broken Hearts,” proves that her club-pop style isn’t going anywhere soon. Danish boy band Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” takes the audience through the perspective of a young man looking forward in life, checking in every decade or so to see where he’s at. The storytelling device appears to have worked — the music video is nearing 300 million views. $23.50-$100, 7pm, Tobin Center, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624
