Singer-songwriter Kelcy Mae is based in New Orleans, but don't plumb her music for jazz or brass band influences. Instead, she draws from "traditional Southern bluegrass and country instrumentation with an independent rock sound," according to her website. "She leaves simplistic odes to love or lust or heartbreak to other artists and instead dwells in the fascinating space of sudden realizations and complicated reactions." Mae just released her third album, The Fire EP, this spring, and her tour brings her to Jack of the Wood on Saturday, Aug. 10. Steph Stewart and The Boyfriends also perform. 9 p.m., $5. http://www.jackofthewood.com. Photo by Kimberly Morand
