Purple Clay Strays, 7:30 p.m., Aug. 15
The title is an ode to its Mobile, Alabama, house, but Red Clay Strays usually are not stuck in the mud.
The band barrels into Springfield right after an visual appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago earlier this month. Its sound, which weaves together southern music, common nation, rockabilly and gospel-fed soul, also has lassoed enthusiasts at key competition appearances like Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Hangout Audio Fest, and Mile- Fest.
“Good Godly Girl,” “Stone’s Toss” and “Doin’ Time” do much more than keep their individual, but lead singer’s Brandon Coleman’s stripped-down edition of “Sunshine” (“Which is when my God arrives like warming rays of summer time/Melting all my problems”) is, to place it mildly, other worldly.

The Flagstaff, Arizona teen’s variation of A Excellent Major Globe/Christina Aguilera’s Grammy-profitable “Say Some thing” went viral, eventually nabbing her a document agreement.
“Just ‘Cause I Enjoy You,” “Cannot Miss out on You Any more” and “Narcissist” have followed. She’s not too long ago toured with Spencer Crandall and Josh Turner and heads to Europe later this fall.
The Most important Squeeze, 7:30 p.m., Aug. 13
Its stay reveals caught the eye of producer and “American Idol” decide Randy Jackson, who was at the controls of their 2nd comprehensive-length album, “Head Your Head.”
