After an exuberant kick-off last week spotlighting energized Austin rockers The Bright Light Social Hour, the second MidPoint Indie Summer concert — free local and national acts every Friday on Fountain Square this summer season — is a mini-musical world tour, covering classic Soul Funk, Jamaican Ska/Reggae and Timbuktu desert Blues. Headlining is the sweaty Funk troupe The Dynamites, featuring retro Soul shouter Charles Walker. Malian Khaïra Arby — known as the “Nightingale of the North” — and her band then perform their critically acclaimed World music spin, followed by superb Cincinnati-based group The Pinstripes, which plays an ace blend of vintage-styled Ska and Reggae, spiked with a healthy dose of classic Soul. 7 p.m. Friday, June 8. Fountain Square, 520 Vine St., Downtown. For more details, visit myfountainsquare.com and mpmf.com.
