David Sanborn: The alto-sax player can be faulted for the occasional lame career move into shallow pop, but never for his playing. On the right night, when Sanborn's got the right material and he's backed by the right band, he's one of the best. Shows are scheduled at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, at Red River Opry, Mill and Washington in Tempe. Tickets are $23.75 in advance, $26 the day of the show, available at the scene and Dillard's. Call 829-6779 or 678-2222.

The Skatalites: The Jamaican group not only invented ska, but the 'lites also embodied and perfected it. In recent years, we've seen the band's musical progeny; it's time to check out the original, minus, naturally, the late and more than slightly mad genius Don Drummond. Kongo Shock, and Dave's Big Deluxe share the bill on Wednesday, June 19, at Boston's, 910 North McClintock in Tempe. The all-ages show starts at 8 p.m. Call 921-7343.

Forever Plaid: See Friday.
Shakespeare for My Father: See Thursday.
Six Women With Brain Death or Expiring Minds Want to Know: See Thursday.
