James Taylor And His All-Star Band

KFC Yum! Center

Tickets start at $59  |  7:30 p.m. 

Well, it’s definitely been a year-and-a-half of fire and rain — you know,  biblical plague-type shit — so the beautiful sadness of Grammy-winning singer-songwriter James Taylor might be the soundtrack you need. West coast folk staple Jackson Browne – who is no stranger to anyone who’s ever listened to the radio — will open.

Buddy Crime 

The Flamingo Lounge

$10  |  8 p.m. 

Through dense and dark electro-pop that has a robotic lean, Buddy Crime pairs thoughtful, futuristic sensibilities with a visceral, dance-your-ass-off backbone. Golumb from Columbus and Introvert will open. The local music ecosystem is starting to awaken —support it. 

Sunday, Aug. 15

Virginia Man with Curtis Eversole

Zanzabar

$10  |  7 p.m. 

Through contemplative indie rock, Virginia Man creates heart-on-your-sleeve songs that comb through the past. The band is versatile, able to switch between booming rock and mellow folk-leaning sounds, adding flourishes of several other genres — a lot bit pop, a little bit experimentation. Curtis Eversole opens.
