Humperdinck Sings Hits at Palace; Little River Band Flows by Jergel’s (CPs Wed., 10/15/14)

1) Engelbert Humperdinck, born Arnold George Dorsey in India, moved to England at the age of 10. He’ll be singing his hits at The Palace Theatre tonight, including “After the Lovin,” “Release Me,” and “The Last Waltz.” 7:30 p.m. 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg.

2) Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Little River Band  formed in ’75 with members from several musical groups. Their goal was to craft catchy songs with wide appeal that gained radio airplay. They achieved that with songs heavy on vocal harmonies that had quality guitar play and occasional funky bass lines, like “Happy Anniversary,” “Lonesome Loser,” and their biggest—No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles chart— “Reminiscing.” 8 p.m. Jergel’s Rhythm Grille, 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale.

3) J. Mascis, the driving force behind the band Dinosaur Jr., makes a stop tonight at South Side’s Club Cafe. A singer/songwriter and guitarist who started out as a drummer, Mascis switched to guitar when he co-founded Dinosaur Jr. And thankfully so; Mascis was ranked by Spin as the No. 5 guitarist on its 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in ’12. Special guest is Luluc. 8 p.m. 56 – 58 S. 12th St. This Event Has Sold Out.
