Clubland features: Ice Cube, Baptist Generals and Daisyfest

Cool as Ice: Iconic rapper, producer and actor Ice Cube is almost as well known for his career in film and television as for his decades-long career as an MC. The Los Angeles-based wordsmith visits The Orange Peel on Friday, June 28 for a performance in support of his latest release, 2013's Everythang's Corrupt.

"Drunken folk": Baptist Generals' sophomore album was 10 years in the making, but fans and critics agree that Jackleg Devotion to the Heart's rough-around-the-edges take on experimental folk and indie rock was worth the decade it took to materialize, with Aquarium Drunkard calling it "somewhere between an inebriated Isaac Brock field recording and a long-lost Jeff Mangum bedroom cassette."

Puppy love: Creekside Taphouse hosts Daisyfest on Saturday, June 29, an afternoon benefit to raise funds for a local Australian Cattle Dog's surgery. The event includes music by Peace Jones, Caleb Burress, Chesterface and more, along with stand-up comedy, raffles, a cornhole tournament, silent auctions, a car show and adoptable dogs from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
