    Wesley Schultz and the rest of the Lumineers will play two sold-out dates tonight and Saturday at Marymoor.

Marymoor Park will close out its concert season with something old and something new.
First up is the new band: the Lumineers. The poppy folk act from Denver released its debut album in 2012 on Dualtone Records, a small Nashville label. Reviews were good, not great. No one expected anything big.
Then the sing-along track "Ho Hey" hit the radio. The single became an unexpected hit, going on constant repeat on alt-rock and pop radio stations alike. The album went platinum in less than a year, fueled by that single and its follow-up hits, including "Stubborn Love" and "Dead Sea."
The group now will play two sold-out dates at Marymoor at 6:30 Friday night and Saturday.
Remaining tickets can be found at a mark-up at stubhub.com.
The same venue will wrap up its summer with a visit from Furthur, a group led by Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, members of the Grateful Dead.
Furthur has found a following by playing some of the Dead's best-loved material. And just as they did with that group, Lesh and Weir still reel off improvised jams, the type of thing that made the Dead one of the biggest cult bands of all time.
Tickets are $59.50 at www.marymoorconcerts.com.
Drake also is headed to the Northwest, as he brings his confidently named "Would You Like a Tour?" to the Tacoma Dome at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The singer, who splits the difference between an R&B act and a rapper, has become one of the biggest names in music in a few short years. His first two albums, 2010's "Thank Me Later" and 2011's "Take Care" both hit No. 1.
He'll arrive in the Northwest just days after the release of his third full-length album, the hotly anticipated "Nothing Was the Same," which will likely give him his third chart-topping album.
Opening act Miguel should start the show off right. The R&B singer's new album, "Kaleidoscope Dream," hit No. 3 on the charts.
Tickets are $59.36 to $113.72 at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.
India.Arie leads a list of smaller shows also heading to Seattle.
The R&B singer will play the Neptune Theatre at 8 p.m. Saturday, as she tours behind her latest album, "SongVersation."
Fans had to wait four years for that record, but it appears the wait was worthwhile. The album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard charts, with critics calling it a return to form for the Grammy-winning singer.
Tickets are $35 at stgpresents.org or 877-784-4849.
The acclaimed indie act Phosphorescent also will headline the Neptune Theatre at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Phosphorescent -- the brainchild of singer-songwriter Matthew Houck, the group's sole member --is touring now behind the album "Muchacho." That album was another strongly received collection of Americana-influenced tracks, full of shimmering textures and wobbling melodies.
Tickets are $17.50 at stgpresents.org or 877-784-4849.
Matt Nathanson will play the Showbox SoDo at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, as he tours behind his new album, "Last of the Great Pretenders."
The glossy songs from the singer-songwriter helped land the album at No. 16, proof positive that Nathanson, once labeled a cult act, is beginning to attract attention from a wider audience.
Tickets are $30 at showboxonline.com or 888-929-7849.
And finally, the National will wrap up its two-night stand at the Paramount Theatre with a sold-out show at 8 Friday night. The group is touring behind its latest hit album, "Trouble Will Find Me."
Remaining tickets can be found at a mark-up at stubhub.com.
