Tonight in live music: Weezer and Panic! At The Disco with Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

Two biggie bands and one that's on the way to biggie-dom land at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater tonight

By this point, you have to revoke your music snob card if you don’t know at least one track off Pinkerton, the follow up to the self-titled debut smash from Weezer; though a chart disappointment, it was a critical success and generally the favorite of anyone who admits a fondness for the band. But Weezer is always a solid bet with their bright, listless pop-rock anthems and traditional verse-chorus-verse song stuctures. Panic! At the Disco may have started as a platform to spur gullible girls into buying records from attractive young men, but the Las Vegas favorites are now a nearly an homage to a Frank Sinatra big band with their utterly serene vocal patterns and gigantic, near cosmic pop sounds that go straight to your soul. Make of that what you will. “Relax Relapse” is still the best Panic! song ever. Andrew McMahon is an artist of rare pedigree; from Something Corporate to Jack's Mannequin, the talented pianist has tried out a gamut of sounds and genres, but his quirky blend of intelligent yet melancholy harmonies and heartfelt lyrics has never let fans down. 7 p.m., MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater, Tampa, $20-$60.
