Singer-songwriter Andy Grammer’s busking stint is well-documented. Folio Weekly Arts & Entertainment Editor David Johnson listened to him strum his guitar on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica in 2009. Back then, Grammer trusted tourists to drop a suggested $10 in his guitar case for his indie EP, “Soft Lights on Bright Colors.” Since those halcyon days, Grammer’s twice been on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and seen his single “Keep Your Head Up” near platinum status. Now, the always-upbeat singer hits the stage with Parachute and Andrew Ripp. Doors 7 p.m. April 19 at Freebird Live, 200 N. First St., Jax Beach, $20, 246-2473, freebirdlive.com.
