So the dumpster fire of the simulation we call reality is glitching out of control. As impending doom inches closer and closer, what better time than now to temporarily escape via music? Our Best Shows This Week include Idles, Johnny Marr, Julia Jacklin and more. Anyone wanting to wax nostalgic for better times can party like it’s 1989 at the Hollywood Bowl with New Kids on the Block, Salt N Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Get all the details below.
