July 26. English folk-punk singer-songwriter Frank Turner first hit the scene as the front man of posthardcore outfit Million Dead. Since making his 2006 solo debut with the appropriately named Campfire Punkrock EP, the Billy Bragg-ish Turner's become a hot commodity on the indie scene, signing to Epitaph Records and serving as an opener for Green Day, the Offspring, the Dropkick Murphys, and others. He's even had a beer created in his honor: Believe, which is named for his 2010 anthem "I Still Believe." Hopefully, said brew will be on tap when Turner brings his Sleeping Souls to the region for this gig at the Chance. (Relient K rocks July 12; Sevendust slams July 23.) $17, $20. Poughkeepsie.

    A more serious and committed Hudson Valley musical figure than Decora does not come to mind. Everything the 32-year-old does and says comes with a breathtaking level of locked-down, unwaveringly intense focus.
