Music » Aaron Lewis is most famous for being the frontman of metal band Staind, which has sold more than 15 million records in nearly 20 years of its existence. But if you show up in Wendover to see a version of Staind, prepare to be shocked. Lewis is touring in support of his passionate love affair with traditional country, illustrated on his first full-length solo record, "The Road." He said he inherited a love for the country of George Jones from his grandfather, and is finally able to show how much he appreciates the blood lines of his heroes. "There’s not much country left in the country world," Lewis said.

This the San Diego-based genre-bending band Slighty Stoopid’s seventh summer-long tour, with this year’s edition called the Kickin’ Up Dust Tour featuring Atmosphere, The Grouch and Eligh, as well. (Past tours have been dubbed names such as the Summer Haze Tour, Blazed and Confused Tour, and Legalize It Tour, giving you a hint about the collective’s subtle views on marijuana usage.) "The whole purpose of summer is to create a vibe for the fans," said Miles Doughty, guitarist, bassist and singer for the band that dabbles in reggae, dub, blues, folk in its own unique blender.

When » Saturday, July 27, at 8 p.m.

Where » Saltair, 12408 W. Saltair Drive, Magna
