story.lead_photo.caption YEKWON SUNWOO — At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville will host a concert by South Korean Yekwon Sunwoo, the Gold Medalist in the 15th Annual Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. The Chicago Tribune heralds the competitors in this prestigious event as the “World’s Greatest Pianists!” Sunwoo began learning piano at age 8, earned his bachelor’s degree at the Curtis Institute of Music and his master’s at The Juilliard School. $50 ($40/members).

DEVILDRIVER — Heavy metal group Devildriver will perform Tuesday at George’s Majestic Lounge joined by 36 Crazyfists, Cane Hill, Uncured, and Tetrarch (pictured). The up-and-comers Tetrarch feature Diamond Rowe — an uber-talented guitar goddess who is paving the way for women of color in the modern metal industry. Their sound blends intense metalcore riffage and driving drums with the dark vibes and haunting choruses of hooky modern hard rock. 6:30 p.m. $22.
TRISTEN — A guest at last year’s On the Map Festival, Nashville indie pop artist Tristen returns to Fayetteville with a show at 9 p.m. Thursday at Stage Eighteen. Her knack for lashing exceptional melodies to her singularly poetic lyrics shines again in her third album “Sneaker Waves,” released July 7. Tristen’s lush, expertly crafted arrangements win audiences with her powerful stage presence — performances that channel the rock ’n’ roll eclecticism of David Bowie and the creative prowess of Dolly Parton. $12.
