Welcome back to the Current Forecast playlist! Every Tuesday Current Magazine is putting together a playlist of the live music acts coming to town over the next week.

There are a ton of diverse acts coming to Washtenaw County this week, which is always a lot of fun for music fans.  New Orleans native Luke Winslow King kicks things off at The Ark tonight, September 6th, at 8:00pm bringing great roots and blues music with him.  On Thursday September 8th, Ann Arbor pop/punk band 10 Days Old play at the Blind Pig with My Girlfriend Beru, meaning this will definitely be a high energy and fun show.  Fans of really well executed folk music will want to mark Friday September 9th on their calendars as Austin folk group Kelley McCrae come to the Black Crystal Café.  Then, fans of great Jazz music are in luck as the A2 Jazz Fest is happening all day Saturday September 10th at West Park.  Later on Saturday evening make sure to head over to the Blind Pig for Detroit DJ duo Golf Clap who will be spinning late into the morning.  Finally, on Sunday September 11th, folk-tinged indie rock Detroit band Haskins are coming to The Ark, promising to help relax and prepare you for the upcoming week.

Make sure to check back next week to see who is coming to town!
