Brian Owens has received rave reviews with his Marvin Gaye Tribute. The show prominently features a suite of pieces from Gaye’s “What’s Going On” album, which Brian counts as “one of the most socially important artistic works in the history of American music.”

Town Mountain
Sat, July 14 | 9pm
The Pour House

An exhilarating live performance, this Asheville based Bluegrass band never disappoints. Durango’s KDUR radio’s DJ, Bryant Liggett says, “It is reminiscent of the 1970s truck-driving film sound, the perfect accompaniment to a car chase through the south á la ‘Smokey and the Bandit.’”

The Get Up Kids
Wed, July 18 | 8pm
Music Farm
$22 | more info

An American rock band formed in Kansas City, Missouri in 1995, The Get Up Kids were a major player in the mid-1990s Emo scene and toured with the likes of Green Day and Weezer. Is that sweat or tears in my eyes.

Boy George and Culture Club w/ The B52’s
Fri, July 20 | 7pm
Volvo Car Stadium
$25 – $471 VIP Meet & Greet | more info

“It wasn’t a rock. It was a rock lobster.” “Give me time to realize my crime / Let me love and steal / I have danced inside your eyes” – enough said – this show will be amazing.

Sweet Crude
Sat, July 21 | 9pm
The Royal American

Over the past few years, Sweet Crude has managed to take the music and language of Louisiana and produce a completely fresh music that thrusts century-old traditions into the present. The six-piece band consistently delivers exciting shows featuring enough drums for a small marching band, exuberantly bellowed harmonies, and lyrics that jump from English to Louisiana French in a single verse.

Brian Wilson
July 25
North Charleston Performing Arts Center
$42 – $499 VIP Meet & Greet | more info

This show might be your last chance to see Brian Wilson playing Pet Sounds. I would not miss it.
