Every week, we present a curated list of live music in a wide range of genres around the Valley. This week’s column features performers from the Great White Way, a jam band and a love jam.

February 14
Colter Wall
Even if the Canadian country star’s latest album, Little Songs, doesn’t break any records, it has the distinction of having an overwhelmingly positive review on the typically fickle music publication Pitchfork. 8 p.m., $39.50-$99.50, Arizona Financial Theatre, 400 W. Washington St., Phoenix, 602-514-2919, livenation.com

February 14-15
Since the proficient live rock band got back together in 2016, fans have wondered if this tour might be the last for the “I Can’t Put My Finger on It” singers. If it is, you have ample opportunity to see the Pennsylvania group perform, as they’re playing two nights this week. 8 p.m., $113-$343, The Van Buren, 401 W. Van Buren St., Phoenix, 480-659-1641, livenation.com

February 16
Mandy Patinkin in Concert
The multi-hyphenate (and Twitter’s favorite dad) will perform a setlist straight from the great American songbook, including songs from Sondheim, Porter and even folk singer Harry Chapin. 8 p.m., $45-$90, Ikeda Theater at Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St., Mesa, 480-644-6500, mesaartscenter.com

February 17
Kristen Chenoweth
Chances are you know the Broadway star from originating the role as Glinda in Wicked, but she’s also shown off her acting chops on the small and big screen, appearing on The Good WifeGlee and Four Christmases. Now’s your chance to see (and hear) her in an intimate venue. 7:30 p.m., $79-$159, Highlands Church, 9050 E. Pinnacle Peak Rd., Scottsdale, 480-422-8449, azmusicfest.org

February 18
Valentine’s Super Love Jam

Jefferson St., Phoenix, 602-379-7800, footprintcenter.com
