    David Garrett plays Sunday night at the Paramount in Seattle.

A string of sold-out shows will draw thousands to Seattle concert venues in the coming days.
First up is Justin Timberlake, arguably the biggest name in pop.
Timberlake released two albums in 2013 — "The 20/20 Experience," parts 1 and 2 — and went on to claim the bestselling album of the year for part 1.
But Timberlake's success went beyond the music charts — one of the reasons he has become a household name. For instance, last year, he also co-starred in the Coen Brothers latest critical hit, "Inside Llewlyn Davis," and made his fifth hosting appearance on "Saturday Night Live."
Now he's coming to Seattle. Timberlake will headline a sold-out show at 8 Friday night at KeyArena, part of a world tour that will keep him on the road through August.
Fans can expect to hear hits like "SexyBack" and "Mirrors" as he struts through the show that should find the pop star playing roughly 30 songs from throughout his career.
Tickets can be found at a markup at stubhub.com.
David Garrett, meanwhile, will offer a very different kind of sold-out concert when he plays the Paramount Theatre at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Garrett, a Juilliard-educated violinist from Germany, has created a following by blending classical works with pop hits. His self-titled breakthrough album, for instance, featured his take on Johann Sebastian Bach and Michael Jackson, on Metallica and Antonio Vilvaldi.
While some critics have turned up their nose at Garret, fans are lining up. His last two albums have crossed over onto the Billboard 200.
Tickets can be found at a markup at stubhub.com.
Finally, the Decemberists' frontman Colin Meloy will play a sold-out solo date at the Neptune Theatre on Wednesday, part of a short string of West Coast concerts.
Fans of the folk-minded indie rocker can pick up a new EP by the singer at his show that finds him covering Kinks songs, including "Waterloo Sunset" and "Do You Remember Walter?"
That five-track album will have to satiate fans of the Decemberists, who haven't announced any plans to release a new studio album since topping charts in 2011 with "The King Is Dead."
Tickets can be found at a markup at stubhub.com.
Like Meloy, singer-songwriter Damien Jurado is a favorite in the Northwest.
The Seattle native has built a loyal following with his melodic, folk-flecked balladry.
He will play the Neptune Theatre at 9 Friday night, just days before releasing his 14th album, "Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son."
Tickets are $18 at stgpresents.org or 877-784-4849.
Finally, indie rockers Surfer Blood will play a 21-and-over show at 9 Friday night at the Sunset Tavern in Seattle.
The guitar-fueled indie rockers made a splash with the scruffy 2010 debut "Astro Coast."
After some bad press left a stain on the group's jubilant image — singer John Paul Pitts was arrested for domestic violence, although charges were never filed — the group returned with the more slickly produced "Pythons," its major label debut.
Tickets are $10 at ticketweb.com.
