GORDON STONE BAND -- Most readily recognized as a repeat guest performer on early Phish recordings, former Vermont resident Gordon Stone has long since built a reputation of his own as one of the finest banjo and pedal steel players in the region. Incorporating drum kit, electric bass and a bevy of musical styles, the Gordon Stone Band taps into that Flecktonian sense of bluegrass opportunism. Smith's Olde Bar (Hutchinson)
LIVE FROM NEW YORK -- As much a blatant "SNL" reference as it is the god's honest truth, this acoustic package tour assembles some of the NYC neo-folk scene's more promising singer/songwriters: Teddy Goldstein, Anne Heaton, Edie Carey, Andrew Kerr and Sam Shaber (who's upcoming debut is being produced by Shawn Mullins). Part lighthearted banter, part self-effacing interaction, part deftly strummed sincerity, LFNY's bracing mix of humor and heartfelt music is the aural equivalent of a face full of iced coffee with heavy cream. Eddie's Attic (Rowland)
PROPHETIX -- Atlanta hip-hop trio Prophetix highlights tonight's installment of the Apache's weekly Tuesday event, The Ave. Prophetix's hook-filled, lyrically intricate single, "True Urban Grit"/"Prophetionals" propels the group's two MCs and DJ to the top of the local indie scene.

Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
