Keith Urban & John Mayer. Gorge Amphitheater, 754 Silica Rd. N.W., Quincy, 628-0888. 7 p.m. $53.85-$150. All ages. There's not too much to say about the music of Keith Urban other than it's as innocuous as any Top 40 country out there. Where Mr. Urban has transcended other glossy twangers is the art of Timberlaking. He's the Chris Martin of the CMAs. Unfamiliar with the term? It's when a middling musician benefits from dating above his fame strata. If JT hadn't moved on to Cammy after 'NSYNC, he'd now be group-dating on VH1. Don't believe me? Ask JC Chasez. No stranger to banging starlets is Urban's co-headliner John Mayer, who, from the number of Proactive spokeswomen he's bedded, makes me think it's his semen that causes jawline acne.

Mickey Avalon, with Thee Satisfaction, Truckasaurus. Showbox at the Market, 1426 First Ave., 628-3151. 8 p.m. $25. On his 2006 self-titled debut, Mickey Avalon rhymed about the underbelly of streetlife rap he had yet to explore and boasted 'he had a dick like Jesus,' one of the most undecipherable yet grandiose brags to ever pollute the game. What the hell it actually means is up for interpretation -- Is it bearded? Can it turn water into wine? Regardless, on 2009's Stroke Me he's still perpetrating his Cool Keith meets Hollywood Boulevard vibe and bringing more ass and eyeliner to hip hop then anyone since Lil' Kim. He promotes his shows as "events," and are they ever. You'll leave feeling so dirty you'll want to screw and shower. In which order is up to you. MA'CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR

Crowded House, with Lawrence Arabia. Chateau Ste Michelle, 14111 N.E. 145th St., Woodinville, 800-745-3000. 7 p.m. $45-$65. Don't dream it's over.
