This weekend’s shows present a theme: a heady mix of country and soul that runs the gamut of styles in each of their respective genres. Our playlist doesn’t even touch on all the options (Hank III at The Orange Peel, Broken Lilacs at Bywater, Hearts Gone South at Good Stuff — all on Friday) would have been good options as well. But we’ve got six songs culled from local performances, including a wildcard pick from Bulgogi.
This week’s tracks are:
2. “Stomp and Holler” by Hayes Carll from KMAG YOYO (& other American stories). Carll headlines this week’s installment of Downtown After 5, Friday, July 18, 5:30 p.m. on Lexington Ave. at the I-240 overpass. Free.
5. “Multiply,” by local musician Jim Arrendell from his 2012 album, What Is a Man. Arrendell performs with his band, The Cheap Suits, at Isis Restaurant and Music Hall on Friday, July 18 (9 p.m., $5) and at Tressa’s on Saturday, July 19 (10 p.m. showtime).
