Keith Sweat, Babyface and Jody Watley at First Security Ampitheater Sunday

SUNDAY 8/14. First Security Amphitheater. 6 p.m. $39-$209. If you were born anytime between 1977 and the early 2000s, and your parents are very excited for this concert, there’s a decent chance that you were conceived to a soundtrack that one of these R&B legends had something to do with. What’s a reasonable estimate for the number of babies made while listening to Shalamar, solo Jody Watley, Keith Sweat, LSG, Babyface or any of the jillion jams Babyface produced? It’s gotta be a million.

Your weekend arts forecast: Steely Dan, Keith Sweat

At press time, there were scattered tickets remaining for the Steely Dan concerts at the Mahaffey Theater Friday and Saturday. Although the theater website says tickets are “$76 and up,” you won’t find a seat anywhere near that price range, thanks to Ticketmaster’s so-called Verified Resale system, in which the cost skyrockets as demand dictates (these shows, postponed from last October, have been on sale for over a year).

Things to do this weekend: Keith Sweat Birthday Celebration, Grupo Niche, Silvestre Dangond, Expert Timing, Hulder

Our picks of the best stuff to do this week. Black metal has proven to be a surprisingly nimble style of music, deftly avoiding any of several aesthetic and ideological dead ends. Indeed, there is a consistent flood of new, intriguing takes on the black metal template as the corpse-paint is taken up by legions of young enthusiasts. One-woman U.S. black metal powerhouse Hulder is a leading light amongst this horde. After a string of highly coveted and lauded limited-release cassette demos, the project of Marliese Beeuwsaert hit the underground big time with last year’s Godslastering album on Iron Bonehead and the more recent The Eternal Fanfare on 20 Buck Spin. Both are stellar records of raw, cold, classic black metal not in the least concerned with mass accessibility, but with an instinctive knack for compelling riffs and song structure. Now Hulder is on her first U.S. tour with a full band, and expectations are very, very high. But then again, she’s got Satan on her side, so no sweat. Touring support comes from Skeleton. — Matthew Moyer.
