Frankie Avalon and Lou Christie at Palace; Mr. Smalls Hosts Drive By Truckers (Sun., 9/15/19)

1) Frankie Avalon was already an accomplished young singer before his career path had him in some of the top beach/surfing films of the 1960’s. Before starring in Beach Blanket Bingo, Avalon had two number one hit records with Venus and “Why.” Avalon is joined on the tour by the legendary Pittsburgh-born Lou Christie and his fantastic falsetto voice. His talent is evident on songs like “Lightnin’ Strikes” and “Two Faces Have I.” See them both at The Palace Theatre. 6 p.m. 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg. (RH)

2) Drive-By Truckers are pulling the rig off the road for a show at Mr. Smalls Theatre. A stirring combination of guitars, vocals, and drums gives their music a soulful, rocking, country sound, such as on “Surrender Under Protest.” Their latest album is 2016’s American Band. The group is from Athens, Georgia, and singer-songwriter Jason Isbell was a former member. 8 p.m. 400 Lincoln Ave., Millvale. (RH, CM)
