Orlando concert picks this week: Paul Van Dyk, Madame Mayhem, Christopher Cross and more 

Illinois deathcore marauders – once signed to Earache Records, no less – are out pillaging the continental U.S. on their Revolution Tour with Slaughter to Prevail and Aversions Crown.
6 p.m. Wednesday, May 3, at Backbooth, $15-$18

Christopher Cross
Sweet Jesus, that's smooth. A dream and a wind carries the crown prince of yacht rock to the Plaza Live, to hold court over his loyal subjects.
8 p.m. Thursday, May 4, at the Plaza Live, $49.50-$89.50

Slowdive Listening Party
One of the hotter sonic tickets of this Friday night will be watching the wax circle that holds shoegaze legends Slowdive's latest collection of songs spin and spin in the comfy environs of Park Ave CDs.
9 p.m. Friday, May 5, at Park Ave CDs, free

Paul Van Dyk
Techno/trance hero Van Dyk hits Gilt as part of his Dreamstate tour. Not only is he a dance music icon, the dude beat the odds against a spinal injury that could have left him paralyzed (or dead) last year. Celebratory.
10 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at Gilt, $15-$40

Madame Mayhem
Manhattan metal belter Madame Mayhem's rise to the top of the mainstream metal echelon seems all but inevitable; she's an undeniable performer and has held her own in collabs with members of Sevendust, Mr. Big and Guns N' Roses.
7 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at Haven Lounge, $10

Russian drum & bass DJ/producer Enei has gathered raves from audiences and tastemakers around the world (including Goldie), and is a crucial example of how music can transcend political issues of the day.
10 p.m. Monday, May 8, at Native Social Bar, $8

The Kickback
Young Chicago indie band gets the nod to open for alt-rock chancers Bush; they should be able to win over even Bush's partisan crowd with their tuneful, angular anthems.
8 p.m. Tuesday, May 9, at Hard Rock Live, $33-$43
