Local musician and promoter John Henry has continued to expand the scope of his annual late-summer Open Highway festival, and 2016’s lineup offers a good mix of country legends, pop weirdos and stand-up comedians. The five-day fest hits its fuzzy, indie-fied stride on Thursday with a headlining set from the Norman, Oklahoma-based quintet Broncho, whose just-released Double Vanity casts its languid, swampy jams through a lens of light psychedelia. Local outfit American Wrestlers will continue its evolution from Gary McClure’s self-recorded project to an increasingly formidable live band, with likely previews of songs from its upcoming sophomore release. Sets from LA-based lo-fi pop artist Billy Changer and STL’s Whoa Thunder will round out the night.

But Wait There's More: Open Highway continues through this week with sets by Billy Joe Shaver and Amanda Shires (Friday), comedian Todd Barry (Saturday) and Pokey LaFarge (Sunday), all at Off Broadway.
