Bryan Adams
Sat. Aug. 10 | Bryan Adams won't be waking up the Treme neighbors — he's playing a solo acoustic set starting at 8 p.m. — but if the Canadian hitmaker's screaming reception on this tour holds at the Mahalia Jackson Theater, Rampart Street might hear a 2,000-strong rendition of "Summer of '69."

Trina
Sat. Aug. 10 | The Miami MC made an impressive studio debut in 2000 with Da Baddest Bitch on the rap label Slip-N-Slide, home to Trina's mentor Trick Daddy. She broke from the label in 2011 and released a string of mixtapes — her latest single is the bouncy club hit "A$$ Fat." Young Gabe opens at The Howlin' Wolf.
