Kevin Fowler
Saturday, August 6

For some, country is a genre for introspection, examining one's emotions and shortfalls. Then, there's Kevin Fowler's "Hell Yeah, I Like Beer." From the title, you should be able to tell if you're into it or not (Though I'll personally pass on the tune, I do agree with the sentiment). $15-$300, 7pm, Floore's Country Store, 14492 Old Bandera Rd., (210) 695-8827

Ryan Bingham and Shakey Graves
Saturday, August 6

Bingham’s rollicking Americana-rock mash ups and his craggy voice translate into a live show that ratchets up the energy level and dynamism of his compositions, accentuating the rock sound in places and dampening it in others. The magnitude of Whitewater Amphitheatre may actually play right into the hands of the whiskey-whisperer as his fans are devout enough to silence the place to the point of being able to hear a heart break. There are one-man bands, and there is Shakey Graves. The Austin-based bluesman (born Alejandro Rose-García) is the complete package: subtle, tasteful fingerpicking, solid percussion using both feet, a whisky-soaked voice, amazing stage presence and two albums with enough good songs to prove he’s a lot more than just a novelty act. $27.25 - $1,034.64, 7pm, WhiteWater Amphitheatre,
11860 FM 360, New Braunfels, (830) 964-3800,
