Southern Rock Legends The Outlaws Play Jergel’s; Stage AE Has Lord Huron (Wed., 6/8/22)

1) Southern rock finds its way north with The Outlaws. For over 40 years, the band has been thriving in the Southern rock genre along with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and The Allman Brothers. Founded in Tampa, Florida, in ’72, The Outlaws put forth a Southern rock opus with “Green Grass and High Tides” and scored a major hit with “There Goes Another Love Song.” Outlaw trademarks include beautiful vocal harmonies and intricate lead guitar play. Surviving the test of time, the inevitable evolution of popular music, and bandmates’ deaths, The Outlaws are definitely alive, kicking, and, it would seem, stronger than ever. And now that Lynyrd Skynyrd has embarked on a farewell tour, The Outlaws will be one of the groups to proudly carry forward the Southern rock banner. They come our way with special guest 7 Mile Run. 8 p.m. Jergel’s Rhythm Grille, 103 Slade Lane, Warrendale. (R.H.)

2) Lord Huron’s founding member Ben Schneider, first started writing music in his hometown of Lansing, Michigan. After some traveling he settled down in Los Angeles. In 2010 he started a solo project called Lord Huron, named after a great lake he had visited several times. Schneider created a few EPs and then slowly added members to form a band. Their debut studio album, Lonesome Dreams, was released in 2012, and they are touring in support of their fourth album, Long Lost, which came out last year. The indie folk group will perform and outdoor show at Stage AE. Special guest is Erin Rae. Doors open at 6 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (R.H,)
