Governor's School Benefit with Jessica Long & the New Kind, Brett Harris 

When: Sun., Oct. 30, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10

Possessing a voice that tempers charming twang with powerful resonance, and a sound that pairs mainstream rock muscle with the glitzy overtones of Nashville, Jessica Long could be one lucky break away from a crossover smash. That's not to say her music is perfect, but it is polished, professional and chock-full of fetching melodies. Brett Harris, on the other hand, makes tight, punchy pop that suggests a Southern-born Paul McCartney. He's not quite a second coming, but he does have a strong voice and a bevy of songs that range from good to great. Tickets to the 9 p.m. show are $10; this is a benefit for the state's Governor's School. —Jordan Lawrence
