Eight of This Weekend's Best Shows: Starring Untapped Festival, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, Ariel Pink and More


Consult our shiny new concert calendar for more goings-on this weekend and beyond.


Untapped Festival
Saturday, September 8, at Trinity Groves Park

It's hard to tell what the biggest draw will be at Saturday's Untapped Festival. It's a music/beer festival that pairs bands like Givers, The Antlers, Akron/Family, Blackstone Rangers, Burning Hotels and many more with beers like Dogfish Head, Oskar Blues, Ommegang and Chimay. Whatever it is that draws you, you're likely to find something new to try out.

Quaker City Night Hawks, Glen Farris
Thursday, September 6, at AT&T Performing Arts Center

It's the first Patio Sessions date of the fall, even though it's still a blazing 100 degrees out. Patio Sessions is a free outdoor show that features local bands on the Winspear lawn. Grab a six pack and some food truck money and relax. Starts at 5:30 p.m.

Rubber Gloves Free Week
Thursday, September 6-Saturday, September 8, at Rubber Gloves
Three more chances to get your free show on, starting tonight with The Angelus, New Science Projects, Eccotone and more. Friday hosts Bad Design and Street Arabs; Saturday closes out with A.Dd+, Idiots, Atomic Tanlines and Shiny Around the Edges.

Lyle Lovett
Friday, September 7, at Majestic Theatre

Lyle Lovett will be bringing his handsome catalog to the Majestic, a venue that seems to further hallow the artists that perform on its stage. Have you noticed he has a lot of songs about girls?

Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Lil Marley, Brain Gang Blue, The Mohicans
Friday, September 7, at Prophet Bar (Big Room)

As Channing Beumer says in this week's print edition: It's a "Top Dawg Entertainment takeover" at Prophet Bar.
