Opening for the Troubadours will be Texas Americana act Jonny Burke. Tickets for this all ages event are $15 through the Wooly's box office and Ticketfly.
DG's Tap House in Ames will feature Arizona "psychedelic desert folk" act Decker (stylized "decker.") tonight. The band released their fourth studio album Slider last year, and they have plans to release an EP named Patsy later this summer. Des Moines roots duo Fox & Crow (Luke Fox and Bonita Crowe) will open the show at 9 p.m. The concert is free and open to all over the age of 21.
