Dave Matthews Band in Annual Sojourn to Star Lake; Joe Grushecky and The Houserockers Play Allegheny RiverTrail Park (Fri., 6/23/23)

1) It’s a sign of normalcy when Dave Matthews Band tours in the summer, and good news, the band is doing just that, including a stop at The Pavilion at Star Lake. “Ants Marching” or “Gravedigger?” “Crash Into Me” or “Crush?” So go the speculations as to what Dave and his bandmates will put on the setlist. Formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991, the group soon established itself as a premier live act. Their mix of rock, jam, and jazz has moved hearts and feet across generations. They’re also exceptional in the studio with 10 studio albums released, seven of which have debuted at number one. Their newest is this year’s Walk Around the Moon. One of their biggest hits, “Crash Into Me,” was the pillar of the throwback soundtrack to 2017’s critically acclaimed movie Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut. 7:30 p.m. 665 Rt. 18, Burgettstown. (C.M., M.V.)

2) Joe Grushecky and The Houserockers are very popular in every part of this region (and country) and this month they’ll be heatin’ up the ‘Burgh. Joe Grushecky’s latest album is 2018’s More Yesterdays Than Tomorrows. There is also a 25th Anniversary edition reissue of Grushecky and The Houserockers’ classic, American Babylon, which was produced by Bruce Springsteen. Grushecky and The Houserockers make an annual trip to Asbury Park, New Jersey, to play some concerts there. Hear Grushecky classics and newer tunes tonight at Allegheny RiverTrail Park in Aspinwall. 7 p.m. Free. Rain or Shine. 285 River Ave. (R.H.)
