The commodification of pop-rock in the ’80s owes plenty to the likes of Pat Benatar. Between her vocal range and rock-and-roll attitude, hits like “Heartbreaker” and “Love Is a Battlefield” have become synonymous with the era that brought us “Thriller” and “Like a Virgin.” While new wave was breaking ground, she was a catalyst in bringing a rock edge to pop music, combining distorted guitar riffs with synths and electronic drum beats. Three decades later, Benatar is still wowing audiences alongside husband, guitarist/songwriter Neil Giraldo. $35-$100, 7:30pm Monday, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org.

It’s been almost a year since Brownout first picked up the occult menu of the Black Sabbath songbook and they haven’t looked back since. Their 2014 record of Latin funk-infused Sabbath covers Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath was picked up by NPR as one of the top 50 releases of the year, going on to be the most high-profile release in the band’s decade-deep catalog. Their subsequent tour, which took the band all across the country, further widened the Brown Sabbath appeal and gained momentum for more performances, including their slot on Maverick Music Festival’s main stage and at Bonnaroo earlier in the summer. Free, 7pm Tuesday, Arneson River Theater, 418 Villita St., facebook.com.
