Since releasing its self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, The Band Perry has ascended quickly with a string of hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum “If I Die Young," the platinum “You Lie,” and the gold-certified as well as the consecutive No. 1 hits, “Better Dig Two” and “Done.”

■ Tickets went on sale earlier this week for Los Lobos' Jan. 31 concert on the Verizon Wireless Center Soundstage. Cost is $34 and all seats reserved.

Formed in 1973 straight out of high school in East Los Angeles, Los Lobos took their love of rock and roll and created a unique hybrid that incorporated traditional Mexican music.
