Saint Motel

Sat., July 21, 6:30 p.m.

It’s no easy task to embed the popular children’s diddy “head, shoulders, knees, and toes” into a pop song and make it sound cool. Yet L.A. indie-pop foursome Saint Motel did that with “Move.” After the band’s 2014 earworm “My Type” blew up, the band was handed the keys to the indie-pop kingdom, landing spots in commercials, film, and even a pro soccer video game. In the second of three free summer concerts at Beacon Park (last month, the venue hosted JR JR), Saint Motel will ride the wave of 2016’s saintmotelevision and dish out the summer-fied radio-friendly vibes they’re known for.

Mobley

Sat., July 21, 7 p.m.

“The future isn’t home,” Mobley presses on the layered track “Young Adult Fiction” from Fresh Lies, Vol. I — an album he defines as “post-genre pop.” This is but one example of the incomparable Austin, Texas-based artist’s innate ability to pair varied uncertainties with lush soundscapes and hopeful resolve. Mobley can best be described as a one-man-band: He writes, performs, and produces his music, designs his own artwork, directs his videos, and has been known to create his own instruments (many of which he learned to play by sneaking into his college’s music department after hours). This boy is on fire. $10-$12

Summer at the MOCAD Homestead series: Raphael Saadiq and Tunde Olaniran

Sun., July 22, 7 p.m.

If the name Raphael Saadiq doesn’t strike an immediate chord it’s probably because he has become synonymous with his multi-platinum R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné! Saadiq is regarded as one of the preeminent R&B artists of the ‘90s, having produced songs for D’Angelo, TLC, and John Legend (to name a few). Just last year, Saadiq teamed up with Mary J. Blige for the song “Mighty River” from the film Mudbound, for which they received an Academy Award nomination for best original song. In a special performance for MOCAD, Saadiq will share the stage with Flint-based artist and activist Tunde Olaniran. $25

Wanda Jackson

Sun., July 22, 8 p.m.

At 80 years old, Wanda Jackson is still the reigning Queen of Rockabilly. Known for her distinctive searing voice and steadfast spirit, Jackson held her own during a time when rock ’n’ roll was an especially male-dominated genre. A true trailblazer, Jackson shared the bill with Elvis Presley in her early years, and in 1960 snagged a spot on the Top 40 with her version of Presley’s “Let’s Have a Party.” She would later explore country and gospel, but returned to her roots in 2011 when Jack White teamed up with the singer for a string of collaborations on his label, Third Man Records. Fittingly, TMR's Craig Brown Band rounds out the bill. $23-$25

"In The Heights"

Wed., July 18, 8 p.m., Thu., July 19, 8 p.m., Fri., July 20, 8 p.m., Sat., July 21, 8 p.m. and Sun., July 22, 8 p.m.

Before Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda gave the world the Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights — a cultural story centered around New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood and its Hispanic community. The story follows the lives of bodega owner Usnavi and his beautician girlfriend Vanessa. Then there’s Nina and Benny — a second love story defined by the price and obstacles of achieving a higher education. Reimagined by the Detroit Actors Theatre Company, In the Heights fuses freestyle rap with merengue dance for a multicultural exploration of love, family, and growing up. free
