Abandoning rigid classical training at Juilliard for the free-spirited dominion of rock, alternative country, and Americana, Andrew Leahey and his backing band, the Homestead, create feel-good music with impressively refocused talent. Now comfortably at home in the music mecca of Nashville, the Richmond native found himself dreaming up his new EP, Summer Sleeves, while cruising through Appalachia on solo road trips back to Tennessee. The result is an irresistible call to roll the windows down, shake off worldly cares, and let your bare feet soak up the sun on the dashboard.

Wednesday 7/3  Free, 8pm. The Garage, 100 W. Jefferson St. thegarage-cville.com.
