8. Paul Simon, May 16 at the Vic Theatre

What is it with these 69-year-old pros this year? Shouldn¿t they be off relaxing on some island in the Bahamas by now? Instead, McCartney rocks Wrigley, while Simon leads an eight-piece multi-culti band through a two hour history of rhythm, from Capetown to New Orleans. Simon rarely plays venues this cozy, and his set list goes beyond the usual classics to deliver songs with a casual, jamming-in-the-living-room flair. He even delivers a face-melting air-washboard solo.
