Monday has just one major concert as New England metal band I Am Heresy plays Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines. The six-piece band followed up their 2013 EP O Day Star, Son of Dawn with their second full-length studio album Thy Will in March of this year. Opening for I am Heresy will be tourmates So Hideous and locals Dark Mirror. The 5:45 p.m. all ages show will have a $10 cover charge.

On Tuesday, Grammy-nominated rock band Saliva will headline Wooly's in Des Moines. The Tennessee band has six Top 20 albums and nine Top 20 singles, including the 2002 #1 smash "Always" and the 2006 gold-certified #2 single "Ladies and Gentlemen". Saliva released their latest album, entitled Rise Up, in April. It was Saliva's second album since Bobby Amaru replaced Josie Scott as the band's lead singer in early 2012. You can check out the album's title track in the nearby video. Tickets for the Wooly's show are $16 in advance and $18 on the day of the concert. Bordeaux, Through the Darkness, Shatter, RehTek, and Lake of Fat Kids will open the show at 6 p.m. This will be an all ages event.

Los Angeles indie pop/soul group Fitz and the Tantrums will play the Nitefall on the River summer concert series on Tuesday night. The six-piece band released their second full-length album, entitled More Than Just a Dream, in May of 2013, and they watched the album peak at #26 on the Billboard 200 and produce two #1 Alternative singles ("Out of My League" and "The Walker"). Tickets to see the band at the Simon Estes Amphitheater are sold out. Max Frost will open the 8 p.m. show.
