Dwight Yoakam

Back in the ’80s, Yoakam, Steve Earle, k.d. lang and Lyle Lovett were touted as an exciting new crop in country music. All have enjoyed standout careers but only Yoakam would be classified as country these days. A thousand miles from today’s Nashville, he maintains a captivating Bakersfield-meets-the-Beatles groove, as witnessed on his two killer albums this decade and 2016’s commendable Appalachian-flavored “Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars,” which featured a bluegrass reading of “Purple Rain.” Always a thrilling live performer with his twisting legs and top-notch band, Yoakam will be making his first Twin Cities appearance in four years. (8 p.m. Sat. Mystic Lake, $39-$89,
