    The B-52s (from left, Cindy Wilson, Kate Pierson and Fred Schneider) and the Go-Gos perform Saturday night at the Tulalip Amphitheatre.

The Tulalip Amphitheatre will continue its summerlong run of concerts this weekend with a double-bill that screams of the 1980s.
The Go-Go's and the B-52s will join forces for a show at the amphitheatre at 8 p.m. Saturday.
The Go-Go's -- arguably the most popular female band of the new wave scene in the 1980s -- dominated the charts that decade. Hits like "We Got the Beat," "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "Vacation" remain an enduring presence on the radio today.
That said, the band has mostly abandoned new recordings. The B-52s are still at it.
The group's 2008 album, "Funplex," hit No. 11 on the Billboard 200. Still, fans are mostly likely to want to hear older hits, including "Rock Lobster," "Roam" and the always-rollicking "Love Shack."
Tickets are $38.50 to $80.50 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
A string of weekend shows at the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery also will fill the seats in Woodinville in the coming week.
First up is Michael Franti and Spearhead. The group will play the winery at 6 tonight.
Franti operated on the fringes of the pop world for decades; the politically minded singer released his first work in 1986. But he didn't break into the mainstream until 2008. Then, his poppy track "Say Hey (I Love You)" proved a potent hit, offering a sunny blend of reggae, rap and rock.
Tickets are $59.20 to $81 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
Then at 5 p.m. Saturday, Robert Plant will bring his latest band, the Sensational Space Shifters, to the winery.
The venue will offer an intimate opportunity to hear some of the biggest rock songs of all time. Plant, after all, was lead vocalist for Led Zeppelin. His work with the Sensational Space Shifters offers fans a chance to hear classic Zeppelin hits, as well as covers of the blues and rock songs that have inspired Plant.
Tickets are $63.85 to $91.45 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
Finally, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo will play the Woodinville venue at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Benatar's biggest hits came in the 1980s, when songs like "Fire and Ice" and "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" peppered Billboard's Hot 100.
Neil Giraldo, of course, helped establish the sound of those hits, first serving as Benatar's guitarist and, soon thereafter, as her husband. The two have been married since 1982.
Tickets are $59.20 to $81 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
Some of the biggest boy bands in history, meanwhile, will play the Tacoma Dome at 7:30 p.m.Tuesday, as New Kids on the Block are joined by 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.
New Kids on the Block scored hits in the late 1980s and early '90s, including "Hangin' Tough" and "You Got It (The Right Stuff)." The group faded in the latter half of the 1990s, but recent albums, including this year's "10," have helped re-establish the group as a popular touring act.
Boyz II Men, meanwhile, are one of the biggest R&B groups of all time, with No. 1 hits like "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" and "I'll Make Love to You" establishing a potent legacy for the band.
98 Degrees can't boast the same level of success, but late 1990s singles like "The Hardest Thing" and "I Do (Cherish You)" still made a mark during that decade's boy band explosion.
Tickets are $38.64 to $105.26 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
Finally, Rancid will open a two-night stand at the Showbox SoDo at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
The venerable punk rock group is at work on a new studio album, so fans can expect to hear new material alongside old favorites such as "Ruby Soho" and "Salvation."
Tickets are $25 at showboxonline.com or 888-929-7849.
