Re: Concerts and Futbol in August 2013???
You'll really enjoy your visit as drummer, there's great music everywhere in Rio! You should check out places like Circo Voador, Teatro Rival and Studio RJ that always host great Brazilian music concerts. For dates, you should keep an eye on O Proximo Show (proximoshow.com.br/tag/rio-d... and your favorite artists webpage.
Another great thing to do will be joining Rio Maracatu for some informal Maracatu drumming lessons (it's an energetic rhythm originally from Recife area).
As for football, the new Maracanã would have probably already been tried out at the Confederations Cup and locals teams will be playing there for the Brazilian Championship - Brasileirão - games played usually on Wed., Thu, Sat & Sun.
