SATURDAY 8/24. 7 p.m. Murphy Arts District Amphitheater. Free.
Low Cut Connie lists its influences as Richard Simmons and Chuck Berry, and the Philadelphia band certainly emulates the spirited intensity both cultural figures embody in performance. But after watching clips of the group’s live shows, it’s easier to compare the piano-playing dynamo of a lead singer, Adam Weiner, to such energetic, wild icons as Freddy Mercury — and maybe Jerry Lee Lewis, in his prime. Low Cut Connie’s most recent two albums — titled “Dirty Pictures,” parts one and two — feel both old and new, like music you could have heard in rock ‘n roll’s apex, or in 2019, when a commitment to making all-American jams feels intentional and honorable. “All These Kids Are Way Too High” and “Revolution Rock n Roll,” the first tracks on each of the “Dirty Pictures” albums, are solid, rousing openers that the crowd in El Dorado will probably find difficult to resist jamming along with. The show at the Murphy Arts District Amphitheater is free and begins at 7 p.m., with an opening set by country singer and Van Buren native Abby Lindsey.
