BRIAN WILSON WITH THE BOSTON POPS The Beach Boys maestro, joined by Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his art-pop milestone “Pet Sounds” by playing the album start-to-finish, reportedly for the last time. Two Boston shows sold out in a heartbeat, but you can still go west. June 19, 2:30 p.m. $25-$109. Koussevitzky Music Shed, Tanglewood, Lenox. 888-266-1200, http://www.bso.org

AT THE DRIVE-IN It’s understandable that some might be skeptical about the reunion of this crucial Texas post-hardcore band, especially after the messy end of its most visible splinter faction, the Mars Volta. But hit YouTube for footage from recent AtDI shows and you see instantly that even with guitarist-singer Jim Ward sitting this one out, the band means business. June 18, 6 p.m. $40-$55. House of Blues. 800-745-3000, http://www.livenation.com
