7/18-19: Rayland Baxter w/ Okey Dokey @ The Basement East

Past NATIVE cover story Rayland Baxter is back to celebrate his forthcoming album, Wide Awake. It’s a collection of songs that came out of a time of isolation and introspection. For three months, Baxter lived with his instruments in an abandoned rubber band factory in Franklin, Kentucky. His goal was to spend every waking minute creating, and—judging by the masterful songwriting found throughout Wide Awake—it seems like he met that goal.

Check out Baxter on July 18 and 19 with frequent collaborators and fellow NATIVE alum Okey Dokey at The Basement East. Tickets can be bought in advance for $17 here, but will also be sold at the show.

Just Cause with Mike Floss

In Just Cause, NATIVE checks in with musicians, artists, writers, chefs, and pretty much anyone else who has appeared in the magazine to see what they’re up to these days. We also ask about their favorite local nonprofit or charity. This month, we’re checking in with Mike Floss, who appeared on our cover in May 2016.
