Headlines, schmeadlines. For Washingtonians, much of today's music news centers around the oodles of concert announcements that have popped up in the past 48 hours. Here's a mere smattering:

- Green Day will bring their operatic punk to Jiffy Lube Live (the venue formerly known as Nissan Pavilion in Bristow), on August 11. Tickets go on sale April 9.

- Paramore, one of the finest live acts in rock, returns to Merriweather Post Pavilion on July 31. Tickets go on sale Friday.

- Brad Paisley seems excited to perform at Jiffy Lube Live (he recently tweeted about the venue's new name), on May 22. Tickets are on sale now.

- Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Little Big Town, Jack Ingram and a fleet of other country artists will visit Jiffy Lube Live on June 6 for the "Country Throwdown" tour. Ticket sales haven't been announced yet.

- And for country music fans who don't want to trek out to Bristow, Dierks Bentley , the Travelin McCourys and Hayes Carll will perform at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue on May 20. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

- Last but not least (okay, probably least), Sting will perform with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra at Jiffy Lube Live on July 11. Tickets go on sale Saturday at 11 a.m.

I don't know, the Sting show could be kinda neat....right? Maybe if they play a lot of Police tunes?

Why is Green Day at the 'Lube? I thought they only did IMP shows around here. *is sad*
