First things first. Check out the calendar at the bottom of this post. There are more live music choices in Lakeland this weekend than I’ve seen before. Some highlights:

  • The really big show in town this week is the return of Lynyrd Skynyrd to the RP Funding Center on Saturday. Their last gig here was 40 years ago, just two days before three band members died in a plane crash. This is one concert where you can shout “Free Bird” without irony.
  • Art + Music at the Polk Museum of Art Friday night features Thoth, Patty Kenoly, Jason Baker, Conner Lockhart and Paul Catala.
  • Art Crawl in Munn Park Saturday showcases musicians from noon to 3 p.m.: Patty Kenoly, Lauren MullenaxEmilie Weiss and Brett Blondell, and Jess Kostella.
  • Folkies might want to check Tampa Bay favorite Rebekah Pulley with Robert Pastore at an Among Friends Music house concert Saturday night.
