SATURDAY Son of Brad Quartet CD release show
Daniel Mills, under the moniker Son of Brad, plays many a coffee shop around the Inland Northwest, often cranking out heartfelt acoustic covers. But this time, it’s all about his work. This weekend, Mills releases a new album, Evergreen, full of his original songs at the Kroc Center in Coeur d’Alene, where Mills is from. He won’t be alone on stage; the talented Son of Brad Quartet will fill in the spaces. Cost is $10 for the all-ages show that starts at 7 pm. Daniel Champagne
This singer-songwriter/guitar virtuoso came all the way from Australia to play a set at Jones Radiator Saturday night — you may as well be there to greet him. His folk songs often meander, but listen long enough and you’ll soon find the brilliance in them. The musician Nate Greenburg opens. Cost is $10 and the 21+ show starts at 7 pm .
SUNDAY Stevie Lynne Christmas

Along with the help of Alyssa Prime, Nathan Komp and Jim Brickey with the band Alchemy, her show starts at 8 pm at the Gathering House on Garland. Admission is $5 for this all-ages show.
