The Band CAMINO in Concert at Stage AE; Roxian Hosts Motion City Soundtrack; Everclear Plays Meadow’s Hollywood Casino (Fri., 6/24/22)

1) While studying at the University of Memphis in 2015, four students joined together to form The Band CAMINO. They released two EPs and then were signed to Elektra Records and made a third EP. Last year, the indie-electropop band, recorded their first LP, The Band CAMINO. The Band CAMINO, is still based in Tennessee, just a little more easterly in Nashville. In addition to releasing their debut album, 2021 was a big year for them having been handpicked by Dan + Shay to be the opening act on their tour. Plus they made an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The group has been selling out multiple headline tours and playing the major festival circuit with performances at Lollapalooza, Forecastle, and on “Austin City Limits.” Special guests are renforshort and Games We Play. Doors open at 6 p.m. Stage AE, 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (R.H.)

2) Motion City Soundtrack will perform in concert at the Roxian Theatre. Vocalist and guitarist Justin Pierre and guitarist Joshua Cain formed the band in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1997. After many line-up changes, the group solidified into a quintet for its debut LP, 2003’s I Am the Movie. One of the new members was keyboardist Jesse Johnson, who in concert often performs a “moogstand,” that is, a handstand on his Moog synthesizer. The Moog is not just a prop though; it’s a staple of their sound, which vacillates between rock, power pop, and emo. Cain is credited with integrating the Moog into their compositions. They were mainstays on the now defunct Van’s Warped Tour, and they also performed at the local Thrival Music Festival in 2014. Their latest album is 2015’s Panic Stations. Opening is All Get Out and Neil Rubenstein. 7:30 p.m. 425 Chartiers Ave., McKees Rocks. (C.M., R.H.)

3) Everclear’s singles, such as “Santa Monica,” “Father of Mine,” and “Wonderful,” were arguably some of the best rock songs from the latter half of the ’90s and early ’00s. Everclear will be releasing their debut album, World Of Noise, digitally remastered for the first time on digital streaming platforms on Friday, June 10. Art Alexakis and the band are on their 30th Anniversary Tour. They will be in concert at The Hollywood Casino at The Meadows along with special guests Fastball and The Nixons. 8 p.m. 210 Racetrack Rd., Washington. (R.H.)

4) Pittsburgh six-piece modern folk/Americana band Buffalo Rose is performing at South Park Amphitheatre this evening as part of the Allegheny County Summer Concert Series. The group recently played the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas. Their latest EP, Rabbit, was created in collaboration with Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Tom Paxton. Buffalo Rose is working on a new album that they hope to release later this year. Special guest is Angela Autumn. 7:30 p.m. 3700 Farmshow Dr., South Park Twp.
