SAXAPAHAW RIVERMILL, SAXAPAHAW

SATURDAY, MAY 16

The lazy, hot days of summer are approaching, and the Saturdays in Saxapahaw concert series is back to help usher them in—and, ultimately, out. Until September, a passel of North Carolina acts will drop in to offer free early evening entertainment, from the driving bluegrass of Big Fat Gap to the heart-wrenching tunes of The Tender Fruit. This week's installment features Tonk, a Raleigh Americana act that pulls liberally from '70s country and Southern rock to power its swinging and shuffling songs. Jay Brown, a longtime Tift Merritt collaborator, fronts the outfit, while Chatham County Line bassist Greg Readling takes a seat at the keys. If you can't make this show, Tonk plays another gratis set on Thursday evening at American Tobacco Campus. For more on that one, see page 22. 6 p.m., free, 1735 Saxapahaw-Bethlehem Church Rd., Saxapahaw, 336-525-2101, www.rivermillvillage.com/saturdays-in-saxapahaw-2 —Allison Hussey
