Down in the valley, local/regional bands continue to transform Beehive Tea Room into a hoppin' live-music venue with Sarah Sample headlining tonight. Show starts at 7 p.m.
In non-festival news, Ivan Neville Dumpstaphunk brings the funk to The State Room (638 S. State). Son of Aaron “Everybody Plays the Fool” Neville, the seasoned keyboardist easily found his place in an ancestral line blessed with natural abilities. His education included backing duties for Keith Richards and Bonnie Raitt, plus gigs with the family band. Dumpstaphunk is his own creation—double-bass-powered blues/funk/ R&B with its heart fully planted in New Orleans.
And last but certainly not least, Adam Franklin and Bolts of Melody headline Urban Lounge (241 S. State). The singer/songwriter/guitarist of UK shoegaze kings Swervedriver hits town in support of new material including the single, "I Could Sleep for a Thousand Years." Local psych-rockers Plastic Furs (formerly Furs) and The Astrals will open the trippy, beautiful evening.
