Presale is the name of the game at VooDoo Lounge, and you've only got a few days to get early tix for frat-rap vulgarian Asher Roth, coming on July 20 with Cleveland's Kid Cudi, as well as '90s-slash-Dylan offspring the Wallflowers, coming July 27. Roth's is a rare 18-and-up show, so you're in luck, there, Kaylee! Presales are going through Thursday.

Thank you, Back to Rockville, for alerting us to the following shows...
Where & When: the Beaumont Club, July 20
Notes: AAA-radio-friendly Britpop
Where & When: the Granada, August 6
Notes: Yay! Glasvegas' self-titled release from last year was a close contender for my top ten. The group blends '60s rocker looks with a strong early Phil Spector, anthemic sound slathered with a reverby, early U2 influence.
Who: Peter, Bjorn & John
Where/When: the Granada, August 28
Notes: Swedish pop trio who blew us away in 2006-7 with masterpiece Writer's Block but have since been underwhelming in every area except viral videos. This show will give us a chance to re-examine their newer material.
