    Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will perform Sunday at Benaroya.

More than 40 years after he first made his appearance on the Billboard charts, singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will return to the Seattle area as part of his winter West Coast tour.
He promises to play tracks from throughout his lengthy career when he hits Benaroya Hall at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
Browne made his name in the mid-1970s, becoming one of the faces of his generation, a contemporary of James Taylor and Joni Mitchell, whose personal lyrics and folk-bent helped establish him as a consummate California musician, while setting him up as a welcome contrast to the pop chart's burgeoning disco scene.
Best known for tracks like the 1977 hit "Running on Empty," he has remained active, most recently releasing "Love is Strange: En Vivo con Tino," a recording that highlighted a tour of Spain with David Lindley, one of his favorite session players.
Tickets are $85 at or 800-745-3000.
Other than Browne's show, the place to go for music in the coming week is the Showbox at the Market, which will host a string of rock bands.
Most notably, the pop-punk band Sum 41 will headline the venue at 8 p.m. Saturday.
The Canadian group first made a splash on the pop charts with its snotty take on punk in 2001, when it released the album, "No Killer All Filler," featuring the hit single "Fat Lip."
At the time, the group seemed like it might prove to be a flash in the pan -- the poor man's Blink 182. But Sum 41 has had some surprising staying power. It returned in 2011 with its fourth major label album, "Screaming Bloody Murder," which reached No. 31 on the Billboard 200.
Tickets are $25 at or 888-929-7849.
Then at 8 p.m. Tuesday, the chart-topping hard rock group Down will play the venue.
A heavy metal super-group, Down features members of Pantera, Crowbar and Corrosion of Conformity. Their combined talent has sparked plenty of interest -- its most recent album, "The Purple EP," soared to No. 1 on the hard rock charts.
During the group's Seattle stop, fans can expect to hear music from that album, which is expected to be the first in a four-album cycle.
Tickets are $25 at or 888-929-7849.
The following night, Pinback will headline the Showbox at the Market for a show at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
After a five year hiatus, the long-running rock group returned to the indie charts this past October with its new album, "Information Retrieved," which won praise from critics for its introspective sound.
Tickets are $18.50 at or 888-929-7849.
And Quicksand will headline the Showbox at the Market at 8 tonight.
The post-hardcore band has been kicking around the scene since the early 1990s, building a small but loyal fan with its bristling sound.
The group is hitting Seattle as part of its first tour together in 15 years.
Tickets are $25 at or 888-929-7849.
