Along with the summer swelter comes a rolling heatwave of local and touring shows you'd be crazy to miss. While you can count on a few sizzling surprises, here's what we know so far...

June

The latter part of June is all about the locals. On the 20th, Nina Díaz and Vincent Vega (Jeff Escamilla and Alyson Alonzo) will have a free show at Havana Hotel's Ocho Lounge (1015 Navarro, 7pm) in a unique night pairing Nina and Alyson, arguably the two best female vocalists this town has; on the 30th, The Panic Division (presenting Eternalism), The Heroine and others will rock the 502 Bar ($8, 7pm, 502 Embassy Oaks), and Viet-Ruse will present its solid second album, Para Bellum, at Hi-Tones ($3, 9pm, 621 E Dewey). But don't forget ZZ Top at the Whitewater Amphitheater on the 23rd.

Other shows: June 28: Puscifer ($51.26-$63.53; Lila Cockrell Theater; side project of Tool's Maynard James Keenan)

July

Nina strikes again with a rare Girl in a Coma gig at the Korova (107 E Martin) on the 6th, the same day that Dream Theater will be at the Majestic ($30-55, 8pm, 224 E Houston). On the 7th, Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson will be at the Whitewater Amphitheater and Glen Campbell (who's back with the critically acclaimed Ghost on the Canvas) will be at the Majestic. After being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, this is Campbell's last tour and album. On July 13, Nicolette Good is releasing Monarch, her first full-length album; Austin's Collin Herring and SA's Pillow Talk will also be on the bill at 502 Bar. On the 17th, Sublime with Rome (Rome Ramírez being the singer who replaced the late Brad Nowell) will be at Sunken Gardens, and Ghostland Observatory, the band that started the LiveIn210 run as the top concert promotion company in the city, will return to Whitewater Amphitheatre on the 21st.

Other shows: July 13: 311 w/ Slightly Stoopid; Whitewater Amphitheater; Dejando Huella Tour w/ Joan Sebastian and Pepe Aguilar ($61.60-$173.74; Freeman Coliseum)

August

On the 5th, KISS and Mötley Crüe at the AT&T Center need no introduction; tickets are on sale for $52.89-$175.92 at attcenter.com; Iron Maiden and Coheed & Cambria will be at the same venue on the 15th ($51.62), and Crosby, Stills and Nash will be at the Majestic on the 17th ($46-$126) (if you don't know who they are, shame on you: go to YouTube and look for "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" immediately, or rent the original Woodstock; hell, if you're serious about vocal harmonies, go buy their 1969 eponymous first album). One more: The 32nd Annual Tejano Music Awards return to the home of its glory days August 18 at the Alamodome. OK, it's actually at the Illusions Theater, but that's pretty darn close (tejanomusicawards.com).

Other shows: August 6: Big K.R.I.T. $20; The White Rabbit August 19: B.B. King $60-$75; Majestic Theatre •
