Acoustic ascent: The 20-year career of Rodrigo y Gabriela has played out as deftly as the acoustic rock duo’s music. Meeting in Mexico as teenagers, Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero became a couple and formed a rock band. After growing frustrated with local opportunities, they took up residency in Dublin, Ireland, where they perfected their signature dueling guitar style—a combination of intense energy and melody. Rod and Gab ended their personal relationship in 2012, but their music remains prolific, as evidenced by the pair’s first album in five years, Mettavolution, featuring a stunning cover of Pink Floyd’s “Echoes.”

Wednesday 6/5. $38-58, 7pm. Sprint Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. (877) 272-8849.
