Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires
Sat. July 8 | On the new Youth Detention (Don Giovanni), Birmingham, Alabama, fire-breather Lee Bains III (ex-Dexateens) brings the fury like a schoolyard scrum between teenage Elvis Costello and Bruce Springsteen. Bantam Foxes opens at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.


Lightnin' Malcolm
Sat. July 8 | Guitarist Lightnin' Malcolm spent years playing Mississippi Hill Country blues with drummer Cedric Burnside, R.L. Burnside's grandson. Now he's backed by Stud Ford, grandson of Mississippi bluesman T-Model Ford. At 10 p.m. at d.b.a.

Roger Waters
Sat. July 8 | Forty-four years after "Time" signaled the countdown to Roger Waters' personal dissolution and disillusionment, another ticking clock — opening Is This the Life We Really Want? (Columbia), his first original studio album in 25 years — welcomes the Pink Floyd icon back into the dark limelight. At 8 p.m. at Smoothie King Center.
