If you like to get down, the Turnpike Troubadours’ raw, blue collar energy is sure to speak to you. The Oklahoma quintet, featuring fiddle and bass, has become well-known in America’s heartland for its passionate authenticity and dynamic live show. Currently promoting a third studio album, Goodbye Normal Street, the rowdy and quick-witted Troubadours’ flinty genre-melding music captures life in vivid detail and puts boots on the dance floor.

Friday 5/31 Free, 5:30pm, nTelos Wireless Pavilion, Downtown Mall. 800-CPAV-TIX.
