PETER FRAMPTON’S GUITAR CIRCUS Six-string fanatics take note, the Brit rocker is coming alive (!) this summer with a jaunt that’s all about axe mastery. For his local date down on the banks of the beautiful but hard to pronounce Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, Frampton is bringing along former Eagle Don Felder — touring behind a recent solo album — and blues slide-master Sonny Landreth. June 3o, 2 p.m. Tickets: $30-$70. Indian Ranch. 800-745-3000,

SHOOTER JENNINGS A prolific and mercurial artist is Waylon’s boy. He has done straight-up hardcore country, metal-tinged prog rock, swampy southern rock, and sweet folk-n-blues storytelling and many things in between. On his latest, “The Other Life,” the newlywed Jennings dabbles in all of his passions and postures to satifying effect. July 3, 8 p.m. Tickets: $17. The Sinclair. 800-745-3000,

July 6, 8 p.m. Tickets: $20. The Sinclair. 800-745-3000,
