Pulled pork roots-rock for going on 30 years, 9pm.
Fun Fun Fun Fest headliners Jurassic 5 released four albums even your mother’s likely heard, but many of the California troupe’s biggest fans can only name one member. That’d be Chali 2na, the tuba-toned rapper who’ll ditch the “Concrete Schoolyard” in favor of collaborations with funk powerhouses Galactic and Ozomatli. Four years removed from a solo debut, 2009’s Fish Outta Water, 2na’s new EP, Against the Current, dropped in March.– Chase Hoffberger
SoCal firestarters address April’s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.
Community theatre collective Present Company defines itself as “a family of artists and lunatics,” so who better to hold a benefit show than one of Austin’s most irreverent songwriters, Hayes Carll? Don’t be fooled by tongue-in-cheek hits from his most recent disc KMAG YOYO (& Other American Stories) or 2008 breakout Trouble in Mind, though. The troubadour’s country tunes crackle with impeccable detail and empathy for the cast of outsiders and ramblers. His remains an artistic line drawn directly from Ray Wylie Hubbard and Guy Clark.– Doug Freeman
