Tue 07/01 100.7 Star presents Andy Grammer 8:00pm All Ages
In 2012, ANDY GRAMMER emerged as one of the biggest success stories in the music business. He performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (three times). He shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, and he is the first male pop star, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first 2 singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me”. “Keep Your Head Up” is certified Platinum and received the BMI award as one of 2012’s Top 50 most performed songs across all formats. “Fine By Me” is certified Gold and his third single “Miss Me” climbed to #15 at Adult Pop Radio, while the music video reached #9 on VH1’s Top 20 weekly video countdown. Known for his vibrant pop/rock/soul mix and free-flowing vocal delivery, the acclaimed singer, songwriter, and musician – who began as a street performer in Santa Monica, CA - is currently working on his new album and is poised to make 2014 another big year.

Sat 07/05 The EOE Reunion with special guests 2nd Ending, Cutthroat [now All Ages!] 8:30pm All Ages
EOE left their footprint in the Pittsburgh music scene in the 90's. There weren't many all ages venues to play, so they rented out local firehalls and set out to build a local scene. A bi-product of their efforts, was a scene for local groups and aspiring artists in the Mon Valley. Their music is best Classified as Alternative / Punk and it was easy for them to fit the bill with many of the national touring acts of the time. EOE opened for the Deftones, Orange 9mm, MU330, Madball, Face to Face, The Pharcyde, Voodoo Glow Skulls, and the list goes on. They released 3 records over their career: Sweet Jimmy (1995) Generation E (1997) Ye Olde EOE (2007). Their music is available for free download via Reverbnation.

Sun 07/06 Say Anything with special guests The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, You Blew It! 7:30pm All Ages
Say Anything has been making odd, unclassifiable indie rock music since they were 14 or 15 years old, playing strangely literate and loud rock, characterized by what one might imagine if Larry David fronted a Fugazi cover band with the members of Queen. Not that that’s a stretch or anything.

Sat 07/12 Owls with special guests Hop Along, Glocca Morra 8:00pm All Ages
Owls have a new record. It didn’t come fast and it didn’t come easy. It’s been over two decades since Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Victor Villarreal, and Sam Zurick formed Cap’n Jazz as teenagers, and 13 years since they followed up that band with their debut self-titled album under the name Owls. In the time that has passed since then, the members have kept active with a string of other endeavors (including Owen, Joan of Arc, Make Believe, and Ghosts and Vodka) that have never failed to showcase their vast, diverse, and ever-evolving musical aptitudes. And yet, even as the four musicians branched off in separate directions, the thread that connected them still remained intact (even if it did become a bit frayed through two previous break-ups).

Sun 07/13 POSTPONED TO AUG 22 - 105.9 WXDX presents J Roddy Walston and The Business with special guests Fly Golden Eagle 8:00pm All Ages
All 7/13 Tix honored on 8/22. The third album from J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Essential Tremors borrows its name from a nervous-system disorder that’s long plagued the band’s frontman. “It’s this condition where my hands shake―sometimes not at all, but sometimes pretty bad,” says singer/pianist/guitarist Walston. “I’ve referenced it throughout all our records in some way, but it made sense to be more open about it on this album, which is partly about owning and embracing your weirdness instead of letting it hold you captive because you don’t even want to talk about it.” For J. Roddy Walston & The Business―who formed in 2002 in Walston’s hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee―embracing weirdness means a mumble-out-loud celebration of that great and terrible burden of being human. Forcing the oft-clashing worlds of art and rock-and-roll to make nice, the band (including guitarist/vocalist Billy Gordon, bassist/vocalist Logan Davis, and drummer Steve Colmus) deals in a scrappy yet sublime sound that honors both their Southern roots and punk spirit.

Fri 07/18 91.3 WYEP, Opus One, and PromoWest North Shore present Lord Huron 8:00pm All Ages
Lord Huron is a musical and visual project created by Ben Schneider. Originally a solo project, collaborators now include Mark Barry (percussion, vocals), Miguel Briseno (bass, percussion) and Tom Renaud (guitar, vocals). Ben Schneider was born in Michigan and started playing music as a child, on his father's acoustic guitar. The senior Schneider wasn't a musician by trade, but he had learned a bit during his downtime on ships in the Navy. Schneider's father would bring the instrument out from time to time most often on summer nights around the campfire up on Lake Huron to strum and hum the songs he knew. After learning the basics, Schneider began his formal training in the school orchestra. He played upright bass and fiddled with many other instruments, both acoustic and electric, and began recording original music on a four-track cassette machine.
