Former daytime soap opera star and pop icon Jesse McCartney will bring his "In Technicolor" tour into the Mercury Ballroom on July 29. McCartney has quite a record in the entertainment business, having been a member of the boy band Dream Street before going pro with the platinum-selling Beautiful Soul in 2004. He won multiple awards at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Crossover Artist, Choice Male Artist and Choice Breakout, Male. The following year, he won Favorite Male Singer at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, so he built a teen and pre-teen fan base early on. Not to be slotted into one category, he also put songs up on a number of Disney soundtracks and take to writing songs for other artists, including co-writing credits for "Bleeding Love," which was recorded by Leona Lewis on her debut album. His current recording is a In Technicolor, hence the name of his tour. The tour sponsor is TWIX® Brand Peanut Butter, so if you haven't already got the message, this act is pure corporate America. Tickets to the show are$25 plus $5.25.

It's the end of June, so it must be WFPK's Waterfront Wednesday show on July 30. This month, the free show features Steelism, Ben Sollee and The Deloreans, making for an interesting mix of styles. Now, Louisvillians know what Ben Sollee sounds like and how inventive and cutting edge every single thing he does is, so we'll leave that plug to your memory and imagination. The Deloreans are a Louisville pop rock band who deliver with a cheerful attitude, so that leaves Steelism, whose name is utterly appropriate the lead instruments are a steel guitar, though not played in the traditional country style so favored for years in Nashville, and an electric guitar. The band members hail from Mussel Shoals, Alabama and Nashville, so you know you have your chops and your soul. The band is climbing, with an array of singles and EPs to promote, plus a new, not-yet-released album, 615ToFame, to promote. It's due out in mid-September. Head on down to the Waterfront and catch this new act before they get really big and you have to pay Yum! prices (well, okay, Headliners prices) to see them.

Watch Steelism play "Caught In A Pickle" live :
