Red Dirt stalwarts the Turnpike Troubadours  have been fairly successful at offering a brand of country music that isn't Nashvillian, with their most recent, self-titled release made it to #3 on on Billboard's country chart and #2 on the Folk chart. For those unfamiliar with Red Dirt music, it's a flavor of country named after Oklahoma dirt and is centered in Stillwater. Okay, I admit that I let the video below play all the way through while writing this, because it reminded me of the country-rock music I used to listen to before, back before Nashville turned country into pop-rock with hats They'll be at the Mercury Ballroom on June 26. Tickets are $20.

My, my, Ani Difranco has certainly been at it for some time now, even though she hasn't been here in a good while. I think I need not detail her many achievementsl and status in the feminist movement; all her fans are already familiar with much of it. Her latest record is titled Allergic To Water. She'll be at the Mercury Ballroom on June 27. Tickets are $27. Here's a live performance from Cleveland called "Angry Anymore":

WFPK's Waterfront Wednesday for June will feature Hayes Carll, Dylan LeBlanc and Brenda.  Texan Hayes Carll's style of roots-oriented songwriting has been noted for its plainspoken poetry and sarcastic humor (it says here.). He was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Country Song, and American Songwriter awarded him with Song of the Year for “Another Like You” in 2011, the same year he was nominated for Artist of the Year at the Americana Awards. LeBlanc is a Sheveport boy who's making his way up the ladder of musical success. Germantown's Brenda plays "shotgun house rock" and is still promoting their first, self-titled, album. It's a free show, of coure, on the Big Four Lawn in  Waterfront Park on June 29. WAtch "She Left Me For Jesus":

Straight outa Cambridge, Mass, comes Passion Pit, identified as an indietronica, electro-pop group. Their second studio album, Gossamer, was released in 2012, and dbuted at "4 on Billboard's to[ 200. Kindred, the band's third studio album, was released on April 17, 2015 and was preceded by lead singles "Lifted Up (1985)," "Where the Sky Hangs," and "Until We Can't (Let's Go)." In short, they have a bit of a good track record and, if that genre is a favorite, they'll be at the Mercury Ballroom on June 29. Tickets are $20 adv. Here's "LIfted Up (1985)" from Kindred:
