Igor and the Red Elvises, Bubba Sparxxx and Within the Ruins are all coming to the Railyard Ale House.

Within the Ruins is an all-ages 7 p.m. show on July 8. Natives to Westfield, Mass., Within the Ruins is armed with a unique take on blending tech and metal; writing music that sets the band apart from metal bands.

Igor and the Red Elvises show is for those 21+ and tickets are $10.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of talented, entertaining musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band.

Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed "Siberian Surf Rock." Since then the band has included musicians from many other countries including United States, Israel, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria.

The Bubba Sparxx show is all-ages and it starts at 7 p.m. on July 22.

 General admission tickets are $15 in advance or at the door. Additional fees may apply.

The term “country rap” has started to take its run in mainstream country formats. But if you are a true music historian, you would recall that this movement began in 2001 with the release of Bubba Sparxxxʼs debut album "Dark Days, Bright Nights."

The video for the first single, “Ugly,” featured Bubba and pals in the mud with pigs, on tractors and performing in front of a house covered with bug lights.
