Umpqua Watersheds will host the first "Outback Event" of summer with a concert for AmeriCorps on May 24.

Lance Canales and the Flood will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. behind Old Soul Pizza, 525 SE Main St., Roseburg.

According to the press release, Lance Canales & The Flood are a roots-blues influenced Americana trio from California.

"Canales’ guttural vocals combine a hard-edged storytelling approach beneath a stripped down, foot-stomping, acoustic instrumentation. The Flood are made up of stand up bassist, Jake (Cobra) Finney and American Roots drummer (DB) Daniel Burt," the press release said.

Local musician Neil Gregory Johnson will open the concert, starting at 4 p.m.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the Umpqua Watersheds office or at the door.
