Saturday, Aug. 25, @ Tequila Cowboy, 5660 W. Saginaw Hwy, Lansing. 21+, FREE, 8 p.m.
Country artist Ray Fulcher has made waves on the modern country scene since his 2016 EP, “Here We Go Again,” landed in the top 10 on the Country iTunes chart shortly after its release. Saturday, he brings his melodic brand of twangy rock to Tequila Cowboy, the spacious music venue inside the Lansing Mall. Fulcher, a Georgianative, grew up listening to the classic sounds of Travis Tritt, George Strait and Johnny Cash. After he enrolled at the University of Georgia, Fulcher himself got serious about music, and started penning his own songs about small towns, dirt roads and high school football games. In May 2014, he moved to Nashville, aka Music City, and spent the following years honing his live set ad clubs across the southeast. In that time, he shared stages with the likes of Montgomery Gentry, Kid Rock and Keith Urban, among others.
Friday, Sept. 21, @ The Loft, 414 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. 18+, $15, 9 p.m.
Back in 1993, the first official season of “The Adventures of Pete & Pete” aired on Nickelodeon network and immediately scored legions of youthful fans. Over the course of three seasons, the taste making show even featured musical guests like Iggy Pop, Michael Stipe and Debbie Harry. For the aging television fans who still miss “Pete and Pete,” the stars of the program — actors Danny Tamberelli and Michael C. Maronna — are headed to Lansing for “90s Night” at The Loft. The multimedia performance blends audio, visuals and onstage interactions for “optimal nostalgia.” The pair critiques some old TV shorts, read scenes with audience members and plays their favorite ’90s tunes. For those who can’t wait until the Sept. 21 show, Tamberelli and Maronna also host a weekly podcast where they “wander out into the world in search of their next great adventure.” Listen at theadventuresofdannyandmike.com.

Mason’s Thursday Night Live Courthouse Concerts, now in its 14th year of shows, features live performers on the lawn of the Ingham County Courthouse. This week, the Twilight Memories Band will authentically perform a batch of classic songs from the Great American Songbook, including plenty of definitive big band, swing, jazz and pop numbers. The Lansingbased group, an 18-piece community big band, says it “specializes in keeping the wonderful sound of the big band-era alive and well.” For this show (the seventh outdoor performance the season), organizers suggest attendees bring chairs or blankets to sit on. During the show, the Mason’s Optimist Club will sell hot dogs, chips, water and pop, so guests can picnic during the concert. The Mason Farmers Market will also have a mini-market in front of Commercial Bank Mason.
