Ford Amphitheater in Vail with Pimps of Joytime, a soul-funk band from New Orleans with highly infectious dance grooves. You might accurately call the Pimps of Joytime a “post-genre” band; they’re a group whose sound — even within a single song — mirrors the diversity of our era’s musical tastes.

Bluegrass Wednesdays at The Barkley
Tallgrass will play a free show at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco on Wednesday, June 10, part of the entertainment venue’s Bluegrass Wednesdays series. This trio brings gravel road vocals, quick-picked strings and a rhythm section with stomping ground sound. While they’ve got a banjo, you can’t call it bluegrass — just expect some dirt-stomping soul. Three-part harmonies backed by drums, bass, guitar and banjo grow big rhythm into heartfelt, original music. Doors open at 9 p.m. Visit http://www.barkleyballroom.com.
