Weekend update: Summer concert guide

(Sarah King/For The Washington Post)
The start of summer means it’s time for the biggest bands to hit the road and play shows at the nation’s largest arenas, outdoor pavilions and rock clubs. We offer our picks for the shows you can’t miss.

Also in Weekend:

• Our picks for the best events going on this weekend, including a chance to explore museums off the mall, the first Brightest Young Things pool party of the season and a whole lot of jazz.

• In Petworth dining news, Chez Billy is finding its potential by listening to customer complaints and moving in the right direction. But will the crowds come?

• A lot stands out about Tommy Tune: First, the fact he’s 6-foot-6; second, his bright red cowboy boots. These have been the hallmarks of a career in song and dance that spans 50 years. This weekend at Strathmore, Tune, 73, will be looking back.

• Every year, suicides in America occur disproportionately among males. Using the farcical plot of a company that helps people write their suicide notes, the play “Suicide, Incorporated” seeks to explore that gender imbalance.

• Read album reviews from punk rockers the Cribs, singer-songwriter Joe Pug, instrumental duo Janel and Anthony, pop-rocker Rhett Miller and jazz vocalist Marianne Solivan.

• Long known as the only post-game option for fans near Nationals Park, Justin’s Cafe isn’t a bad pre-game option either.

• “I’m Coming Home,” a new exhibit of works by Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi, has two meanings: It represents the work, which reflects the space of home being violated by invasive forces; and it marks the return for art dealer Lauren Gentile, who operated the recently shuttered Irvine Contemporary.

• Get the latest movie reviews, including “Snow White and the Huntsman” and Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom.”
