Take laid-back troubadour Jason Mraz, add Raining Jane, an all-female quartet of indie rockers, and you’ve got the makings of last year’s acoustic masterpiece, YES! They make it mellow at the Chelsea on March 14 ($50-$125).
For anyone who doesn’t think Ringo Starr is a big enough draw, throw in multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren, Steve Lukather (Toto) and Gregg Rolie (Santana). Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band play the Pearl on March 15 ($73-$153).

Much as I liked Jenny Lewis in Rilo Kiley, she’s even better as a solo act. Last year’s The Voyager was produced by Ryan Adams (with help from Beck, Johnathan Rice and Lewis herself). Lewis plays Brooklyn Bowl on May 30 ($28-$33) with special guest Nikki Lane.
