Ryan Adams
Tue. March 14 | "Do You Still Love Me?" wonders Ryan Adams at the beginning of his 16th LP Prisoner (Blue Note). Since his 2014 eponymous reckoning, the former Whiskeytown frontman made Taylor Swift tolerable and rekindled his Heartbreaker mojo. The answer is yes. At 8 p.m. at The Orpheum Theater.

Stevie Nicks with Pretenders
Wed. March 15 | It's tough to say which will be the bigger thrill of this belated National Women's Day: Stevie Nicks crushing "Edge of Seventeen" or Chrissie Hynde doing "I'll Stand By You." The beauty of this "24 Karat Gold" Tour is not having to choose. At  7 Smoothie King Center.

Mykki Blanco
Fri. March 17 | The rapper and performance artist's 2016 full-length debut Mykki is an explosive, often-vulnerable force of nature, both ripped pages from a diary and a loud hip-hop mixtape exploring gender identity, queerness and attitude. Cakes Da Killa opens at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Alfred Banks album release
Sun. March 19 | The Beautiful dives into the mind of New Orleans rapper Alfred Banks, who works through his brother's mental illness and suicide and struggles to understand it, in an emotional and provocative hip-hop opus. Marco Pave, $leazy EZ and Marcel P. Black open at 10 p.m. at Hi-Ho Lounge.
