BAND TOGETHER

red hat amphitheater | Saturday, JUNE 27

This year's Band Together Main Event benefits StepUp Ministry, which helps low-income citizens work toward self-sufficiency. There might not be a better modern musical fit than headliner Michael Franti. The optimistic activist contrasts urgent messages about seeking social justice with a relaxed blend of R&B, reggae and hip-hop. Franti tourmates Elliot Root bring bright adult-alternative fare with a slight granola crunch. Big Sam's Funky Nation may well steal the show with carefree party anthems, backloaded with New Orleans brass. Fat Cheek Kat opens. 6 p.m., $20–$195, 500 S. McDowell St., Raleigh, 919-996-8800, www.redhatamphitheater.com. —Spencer Griffith
