Michelle Moonshine & Co. — With original songs rooted in honky-tonk heroes of the past and tones reminiscent of a young Emmylou Harris, Michelle and company (John Davis on electric guitar, vocals, harmonica and Bronk Onion on upright bass and vocals) deliver a performance that feels raw yet refined. Declining recruitment from NBC’s “The Voice,” Michelle traded bright lights for the chance to serve the song with her band. While planning their first full album release and a heavy touring schedule, they continue to showcase their music regionally with lush harmony and ample twang. 9 p.m. to midnight, Lighthouse Lounge, 130 25th St., Ogden.
