blink-182 and Lil Wayne at KeyBank Pavilion; South Park Hosts Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (Sat., 7/6/19)

1) It’s unclear what the Venn diagram looks like for blink-182 fans and Lil Wayne fans, but someone must suspect an overlap because they’re playing KeyBank Pavilion. Perhaps they have more in common than one might realize; Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker recruited Lil Wayne to rap on his solo cut “Can a Drummer Get Some.” Blink-182 formed in Poway, California in 1992 as Blink. The trio scored a breakthrough record with 1999’s pop-punk masterpiece, Enema of the State. The band will perform that album in its entirety on this tour. The members disbanded in 2005, regrouped in 2009, and then co-founder/singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge split in 2015. Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba joined. Blink-182’s latest is 2016’s California. Lil Wayne, born Dwayne Carter Jr and known to his fans as Weezy, is from New Orleans. The rapper hit it big with 2008’s Tha Carter III, which contained “Lollipop” and “A Milli.” His latest album is 2018’s Tha Carter V. Neck Deep opens. 7:30 p.m. 665 Rt. 18, Burgettstown. (CM)

2) One of the most widely known and award winning local groups is playing at both South Park and Hartwood Acres on July 6 and 7 respectively. This outfit is a large ensemble with a big horn section. Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be performing orchestral and patriotic favorites. Both concerts begin at 8:15 p.m. with Andrés Franco conducting. In addition to the fantastic symphony music there will also be a selection of food trucks at the parks. The PSO and food trucks, that’s a cool combination one doesn’t see often.
