Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Thursday, June 7, 8 PM
Straight from the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Preservation Hall Jazz Band will touch down in Coral Gables for a rare jam session. The appearance is part of the Coral Gables Congregation Church's Community Arts Summer Concert Series. Preservation Hall's dedicated artists have been traveling the world and working to preserve the cultural foundations of New Orleans jazz since 1961. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. 3010 De Soto Blvd., Coral Gables; preservationhall.com

Avicii at the AmericanAirlines Arena
Friday, June 8, 8 PM
This week's ultimate Friday night pre-party comes courtesy of Swedish superstar DJ Avicii, as his 2012 Levels Tour pit stops on Biscayne Bay. Add to that the fact that a couple of other big name DJs are in town (Calvin Harris, Tiësto), and it’s not a stretch to say that surprise guest appearances are likely. Tickets begin at $16.50, plus taxes and fees. ticketmaster.com

Friends With You Moving Sale
Saturday, June 9, 9 AM
The bad news: locally-grown, quirky artists Friends With You are moving to Los Angeles. The good news: they're having a garage sale to make their relocation a bit lighter. "The Super Friendship" sale will last as long as the supplies do. 419 NE 19 St., Miami; friendswithyou.com
