With a career stretching back two decades, Grammy-nominated alt-rock royalty Counting Crows takes to the road in support of its new album of cover songs, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation). According to SoundSpike, guitarist Dan Vickrey "said that part of the joy of covering other bands' relatively unknown material is giving new audiences a connection to artists they might never otherwise experience," thus helping show-goers get to know other groups without forced playdates. Songs such as The Romany Rye's "Untitled (Love Song)" and Coby Brown's "Hospital" allow the Crows to pay tribute to musicians they respect, interweaving the program with classics from the band’s extensive back catalog such as "Round Here" and "Mr. Jones."

Tender Mercies, featuring Vickrey and Crows drummer Jim Bogios, starts the show with sweetened folk-rock suited for front-porch swinging and lemonade swilling. Mean Creek, who rank at the top of Paste magazine's 10 Massachusetts Bands You Should Listen to Now, also rock out the evening with boy-girl harmonies and tightly wound pop craftsmanship, packing the gut impact of The Pixies without following The Pixies' strategy of making fans stand in front of a lit cannon.

Bayou Music Center

Part arena, part club, and all about the music, Bayou Music Center has catered to listeners of all tastes since it opened in 1997. James Brown, Steely Dan, Nickelback, and Etta James have all graced the spacious stage, drawn to its dazzling light displays and high-tech audio equipment. The facility also has various bars throughout, from an industrial taproom with corrugated steel walls to a lounge with neon drapery, oriental rugs, and cushy sofas.
