You’ve got a tough choice here! Which incredibly influential rock legend will you see tonight? Pros: Paul McCartney will always have a RAM-sized place in my heart for making the most wonderful post-Beatles solo album. Black Flag will always have my utmost respect for bringing DIY punk to kids who didn’t realize there was an alternative—they made your favorite punk band possible. Cons: I politely shielded my ears from most things McCartney after Wings. Nerds are arguing about whether this particular Black Flag lineup is worth seeing. Choose wisely. (Black Flag at El Corazón, 109 Eastlake Ave E, elcorazonseattle.com, 8 pm, $25 adv/$30 DOS, all ages; Paul McCartney at Safeco Field, 1250 First Ave S, safecofield.com, 8 pm, $39.50–$253, all ages)
