Evan Felker is full of stories, Southern twang, and soul. As frontman for the Turnpike Troubadours, Felker delivers tales of loss and love bolstered by the fiddling and electric strumming of his Oklahoman bandmates in tunes that swing from listening moments to dance-your-ass-off numbers. Playing bigger stages hasn’t changed the band’s accessible, laid-back approach to making music. “The show is about people having fun,” Felker says. “The more fun they have, the more fun we have, and the better off everybody is.”

Friday, October 5. $29, 7pm. Sprint Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
