Ashley McBryde in Concert at Stage AE; Thunderbird Cafe hosts Joe Samba (Thurs., 11/30/23)

1) Ashley McBryde’s major-label debut album was Girl Going Nowhere, which in no way describes the artist herself. The 2018 release received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Album and helped McBryde to be named New Artist of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. Since then, the Waldron, Arkansas native has been hailed as a pacesetter in the latest wave of creative female artists shaping country music’s directions.  With songs like One Night Standards,” she’s built an enthusiastic fan base to go with a growing list of credentials: one Grammy thus far, two more CMA Awards, membership in the Grand Ole Opry, and probably more accolades to come. McBryde plays Stage AE on a tour aligned with her new studio album, The Devil I Know. Kasey Tyndall opens. 8 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (M.V.)

2) Joe Samba, singer, songwriter, and guitarist, is currently on his first-ever U.S. headlining tour and will be stopping in Pittsburgh this evening at Thunderbird Café to support Bumpin Uglies. Samba is a rising talent who has garnered over 8 million total streams. His sound has been described as hitting the “sweet spot between smoked-out Caribbean bliss and sweat-soaked punkified energy.” Samba is touring in support of his most recent album, Far From Forever, released in June 2022. Howie Spangler is also on the bill. 8 p.m. 4053 Butler St., Lawrenceville.
