Caamp in Concert at Starlight; Meeting of Important People Play City Theatre’s Drive-in Arts Fest (Thurs., 9/24/20)

1) CAAMP is a rising folk rock band out of Columbus Ohio. The group was started by friends Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall who first met at a summer camp while they were both in middle school. CAAMP has three studio albums under their belt including 2019’s, By & By, which debuted at no. 1 on Billboard’s Top Heatseeksers chart. Doors 6 p.m., show at 8 p.m.  Starlight Drive-in, 1985 North Main Street Extension, Butler.

2) There are drive-in movies, so why not drive-in live entertainment? Pittsburghers get to try the concept at the city’s first and perhaps only Drive-In Arts Festival. Staged at Hazelwood Green—the sprawling new multi-use development site in where else but Hazelwood—the festival is produced by City Theatre. And though it doesn’t include live theater, just about every other performing art is on the two-week schedule: comedy, dance, magic, and music in forms from classical to hip-hop. Each night is devoted to a single featured act or set of related acts and the artists are Pittsburgh-rooted. Check the link above for the night(s) you want, buy tix in advance, and arrive with up to four in your vehicle. 

Performing tonight is rock band Meeting of Important People. Presented by 91.3 FM WYEP and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.

Institutions collaborating with City Theatre for the Drive-In Arts Festival include the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, City of Asylum, MCG Jazz, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and WYEP-FM. Doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m. Main entry to Hazelwood Green is at 4734 Second Ave., Hazelwood. (MV)
