Jim McCormick

Fri. July 26 | Former Bingemen frontman Jim McCormick spent a decade penning country songs in Nashville, Tenn., including recent Billboard country chart toppers for Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert. He releases his solo album Middle of the River at Chickie Wah Wah.


Carol Fran

Sat. July 27 | In the 1950s, Lafayette native Carol Fran recorded singles on the Excello label, but her career was always overshadowed, as when Elvis Presley released a cover of "Crying in the Chapel" just after she did. The blues and R&B vocalist is at Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro with Davell Crawford.

Dave Fera

Sat. July 27 | On Lovey Dovey's latest release Shive, Mahayla frontman Dave Fera joins the band to cover Motorway's "Little Pills," paying tribute to mutual friend Colin Brown (from Motorway), who died of a lung infection in 2011. It's one of the loveliest songs of this or any other year. At Circle Bar.

Twin Killers with Natural Blonde

Sun. July 28 | Voice fluttering like a vertiginous butterfly, Twin Killers frontwoman Jessica Ramsey takes her psych-colored orchestral songs in every direction except the one you expect. The Baton Rouge act's recently completed second LP, Hand-Painted Dream Photographs, features production by Deerhoof's Greg Saunier. Natural Blonde opens at Gasa Gasa.
