Apparently the criteria to be considered a "supergroup" has changed over the years.

Coming to the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Friday, June 6, is purported "supergroup" Dark Lotus, made up of members of Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid and Blaze Ya Dead Homie.

The band's third album, The Opaque Brotherhood, was released earlier this year.

Tickets are $25. Call (614) 431-3600.

A mere three days later, The Raconteurs -- Jack White of The White Stripes, solo artist Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence of The Greenhornes and Blanche and Patrick Keeler, also of The Greenhornes -- take the LCP stage.

They also have a new record, Consolers of the Lonely.

Tickets are $32/$35. Call (614) 431-3600.

Local jam-roots-prog rockers One Under play the House of Crave Friday, June 6 (tickets $5), setting the plate for Phil Lesh & Friends at Lifestyle Community Pavilion Thursday, June 12.

Lesh's outfit will be joined for a hippie reunion by openers The Levon Helm Band.

Tickets are $38. Call (614) 431-3600.

It's well-documented in these pages that The Beat is a fan of Canadian folk-pop songstress Lynn Miles.

The acoustic singer-songwriter genre is a well-populated one, but for The Beat, two stand head-and-shoulders above the rest -- Miles and Jeff Black.

Miles returns to Columbus for a Saturday, June 7, show at the Columbus Maennerchor. Tickets are $20. Call (614) 462-2636.

(And read ThisWeek Staff Writer David Cross' interview with Miles at www.ThisWeekNews.com.)

The next night, red-haired piano tunesmith Rachael Sage takes the stage at the East Village club in the Short North. Sage traverses the emotionally-charged territory between Tori Amos and Vanessa Carlton. Call (614) 228-3546.

A double-shot of nuttiness from New York starts Tuesday, June 10, at the Newport Music Hall with gypsy-punkers (you read that right) Gogol Bordello. Tickets are $17.50/$20.

It continues with indie-rockers French Kicks Wednesday, June 11, at The Basement. Frightened Rabbit opens. Tickets are $10/$12.

Call (614) 431-3600.
