The Outlaws Take Over Station Sq. for Concert; Unblurred Gallery Crawl on Penn (Fri., 8/7/15)

1) Southern rock finds its way north to Station Square’s Summer Jam Series with The Outlaws. For the past 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 ’67, 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.” The Outlaws trademarks include beautiful vocal harmonies and intricate lead guitar play. Lead vocalist/guitarist Henry Paul—a longtime member who often left for side projects of his own—is again a driving force for The Outlaws and was a producer on their 2012 album It’s About Pride. 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. Some things really do age gracefully. Sick Sense opens. 6:30 p.m. 125 West Station Square Dr., South Side.

2) Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn features a variety of visual and performing arts at galleries, clubs, and restaurants along Penn Avenue (4800-5500) in the Garfield, Bloomfield, and Friendship neighborhoods. 6 p.m. – 2 a.m. Most events are free.

3) Pandemic will break out at brillobox tonight. Symptoms of this DJ dance party are a wide grin and the uncontrollable urge to shake your body parts. This strain of Pandemic, derived from world folk and contemporary dance music, could be studied, but it is better understood through collecting experiential evidence. Pandemic pete will be jammin’ the house. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. 4104 Penn Ave., Bloomfield.

4) Our battlin’ Bucs take on the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight in a 7:05 p.m. game. It’s also Free Shirt Friday, with the first 20,000 fans receiving a Pirates T-shirt. Tailgate before the game at the Friday Night Block Party featuring live entertainment, food and beer options, games and more. You can even meet former Pirate Pitcher  Kent Tekulve. And did we mention beer? PNC Park, 115 Federal St., North Shore.
