Whitesnake Plays Palace; Mr. Smalls Hosts The Penske File (Tues., 5/14/19)

1) British rock group Whitesnake was formed in 1978 by David Coverdale after he left Deep Purple. They are known for the high-charting songs “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love.” Both songs are from their self-titled album of 1987 and reached number one and two, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Whitesnake achieved 8 times platinum status in the U.S. The group’s latest album, Flesh & Blood, is set for release on May 10. One of the tracks from the new LP is the rockn’ “Shut Up & Kiss Me.” Another fun titled cut is “Trouble is Your Middle Name.” Lead guitarist and Pittsburgh native Reb Beach has been playing with Whitesnake since 2002. 7:30 p.m. Palace Theatre, 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg. 

2) The Penske File references the “Seinfeld” episode when George Costanza, unsure what to do with said file but wanting to appear like he understands, instead does nothing (except move its contents to an accordion-style folder). We dig the reference, and hey, songs like “Kamikaze Kids” are pretty good too. If you think you’re Penske material, see this rock band, who hail from Burlington, Ontario, Canada, at the Funhouse at Mr. Smalls. Latecomer opens. 8 p.m. 400 Lincoln Ave., Milvale. (CM)
