Thrash metal, soft rock and vintage hip-hop: The November concerts we're more excited for

November's a busy month, so why not take in a concert to keep your sanity?

We're running down the month's concerts that we're most looking forward to, kicking things off with the Prince tribute act Purple Experience tonight (Nov. 1) and ending several weeks from now with Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee's Urban Cowboy musical retrospective. In between,  we've got thrash metal, R&B and adult contemporary; see our picks below.
