7. Jackie Lynn, Paper Claw, David Nance Band

Aug. 21, 9 p.m. From Greg Lindberg's chat with Hayley Fohr (Jackie Lynn): "When I was starting the project I was really getting into Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton. I read the Gram Parsons biography, and just all the Kill Bill movies [were inspirations]. I think Uma Thurman is such a badass, in general. It’s kind of like powerful, country glamour. All the glitz and glam. It’s also all super American and down to earth. And I wanted it to sound like Suicide was the backing band, sonically. Suicide, I found at a pretty early age, so I thought it would be an interesting pairing."

The Spot Tavern, 409 S. 4th St. (Lafayette), $7, 21+

8. President Benjamin Harrison’s birthday celebration

Aug 20, 10 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Math time: My age + 159 = How old Benjamin Harrison would have turned on Saturday. There's FREE BIRTHDAY CAKE and free walk-thru tours of the home’s first floor. Happy birthday to Indiana’s only president!
