Required Listening

Your definitive guide to summer's best concerts

Full_wiz

It’s no secret: summer and concerts go together like peanut butter & jelly and a Kleen Kanteen filled with white wine.
 
So without further ado, here's the Rundown on this summer’s not-to-be-missed musical events.
 
Wiz Khalifa at Shoreline
An open-air hip-hop extravaganza, featuring the Work Hard, Play Hard rapper with support from NYC’s A$AP Rocky, whose debut full-length dropped earlier this year. The lineup also features B.o.B, Joey Bada$$, so bring your dancing shoes and plenty of Red Bull.
Wed Jul 17 6p. Amphitheatre Pkwy., Mountain View (650-697-3000). $26-75 here.
 
Justin Timberlake at Candlestick Park
Chances are JT will be retiring (again) soon, so this may be your last chance to see him bring his chart-topping pop perfectionism to the 49ers' former home. In case you needed additional incentive, Jay-Z is also slated to perform. Don't forget to bring a poster to get autographed.
Fri Jul 26 7:30p. 490 Jamestown Ave., Bayview (415-656-4949). $55-100 here.
 
Fitz & the Tantrums at the Warfield
The neo-soul outfit has already gotten serious love from the likes of Daryl Hall, Adam Levine, and the late night circuit. So if you haven’t caught them live yet, there’s still time to fix that.
Sun Jul 28 8p. 982 Market St., Tenderloin (415-345-0900). $26-40 here. $30 on the door.
 
Americanarama at Shoreline
Bob Dylan. Wilco. Need we say more? Okay, fine: My Morning Jacket. But that’s all you’ll get from us.
Sun Aug 4 5:30p. Amphitheatre Pkwy., Mountain View (650-697-3000). $49-1,049 here.
