Orlando concert picks this week: Lil Yachty, The Molly Ringwalds, Chakra Khan and more



Eugene Snowden's Ten Pints of Truth

Legendary local soul belter holds court for yet another installment of his Indies residency; wake up a sleepy Wednesday night.

10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9, at Lil Indies, free


Oakland producer/DJ Krane adds a dash of jazz to his electro-dance hybrids and is currently working on a series of crowdsourced Soundcloud collaboration "sessions."

10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 10, at Venue 578, $5

Donald Fagen & the Nightflyers 

Hyper-literate, melancholy, cranky and quick-witted Steely Dan frontman hits the Hard Rock on a tour where he plays mentor to his Nightflyers assemblage of young apprentices/collaborators.

8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11, at Hard Rock Live, $47.50-$125.50

The Molly Ringwalds

Looking like the cast of some lost Bill and Ted's sequel where the lovable goofs pluck a number of '80s musical icons from the timestream, the Molly Ringwalds promise new wave party supremacy.

Chakra Khan

Smoldering trip-hop duo play a rare local show at the Timucua White House. If there was ever a venue uniquely friendly to Alexandra Love's shimmering vocals and Divinci's brooding electronics, this is it.
