Eddie Money in Concert at Palace; Peter’s Pub a Fun Oakland Hot Spot (Thurs., 3/22

1) Classic rocker Eddie Money rolls into town for a show at Greensburg’s Palace Theatre. Money (née Mahoney) comes from a New York City Irish Catholic family with several members serving as police officers. Money was even a New York City Police officer trainee for a while and then, luckily for music lovers, decided to pursue his musical interests. He rose to fame in late 1978 with the hits “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Baby Hold On.” Other top songs include ’79’s “Gimme Some Water,” with its blazing lead guitar runs and strongly sung narrative of an outlaw on the run, and ’80’s rumbling mystical tale “Trinidad.” He went on to more success and scored a big hit in 1986 when he recorded “Take Me Home Tonight,” a duet with the legendary (1960s) girl group singer Ronnie Spector. Money’s last album was 2007’s Wanna Go Back. He is currently starring in his own reality show on AXS TV called “Real Money.” It revolves around him, wife Laurie, their five kids, and eight pets. 7:30 p.m. 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg.

2) Peter’s Pub has been many Pitt students’ local for years thanks to a range of cocktails, drafts, and craft and import bottles. The food menu also keeps rising classes coming back for more. Every day boasts different food and drink specials, and the pub’s spacious interior means dancing. Country Night is every Wednesday. Check out the great specials: $6 fishbowls and $2 Coors Light bottles (10 p.m.-midnight) and $6 Bud Light pitchers (7 p.m.-close). If you want to add some protein to the picture, try the $5.95 sandwiches ( 5-10 p.m.). Bassburgh brings—what else?—the bass to the downstairs on Fridays, and DJ MSSV spins upstairs on Fridays and Saturdays. Meanwhile, DJ Drew Altman spins downstairs Saturdays. If dancing’s not your scene, Peter’s Pub is a chill place to enjoy lunch or dinner any day of the week. 116 Oakland Ave., Oakland. (RH, CM)
