Going On Sale: Fleet Foxes, Ricky Martin and other major Bay Area concerts

Fleet Foxes
This is one of the musical acts featured in the headline. See if you can guess which one. (Here's a hint: It's by Sean Pecknold via Subpop)

Hey, did you know Ricky Martin still makes music? It’s true. This week Martin released his first album in more than five years and embarked on his first national tour in three years, including a stop at the HP Pavilion at San Jose. This marks the first time his fan base can enjoy a show without any mystery surrounding Martin’s sexual orientation, so that will be something different, I suppose.

That’s about it as far as big ol’ arena shows, but there are lots of club-sized goodies for indie fans this week, including Fleet Foxes, Yeasayer, Peter Bjorn and John, The New Pornographers and Broken Social Scene. You heard me right: both of Canada’s supergroups, if we define “supergroup” as including bands made up of people who also play in other bands you hadn’t heard of prior to the supergroup.

Also, there are hometown shows from such local favorites as Zion I, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Y&T, Poor Man’s Whiskey, MiMoSA and tUnE-yArDs (what’s with the goofy capitalization, Bay Area musicians?).
