Allegheny County Music Festival w/Rusted Root, Beauty Slap, and More

September 6 2015 @ 5:00 pm

1) The 16th Annual Allegheny County Music Festival promises a balanced survey of local music. Headlining are Pittsburgh world music royalty, Rusted Root. Depending on how old you are, you know their music, specifically “Send Me On My Way,” from their energetic live shows at the late Metropol, from the Matilda soundtrack, or from car rental commercials. The band still records and tours and seeing them live is a must for your Pittsburgh Bucket List. Openers include Beauty Slap. The quintet bills themselves as an “electro-brass-thunder-funk machine,” and from the sound of things, that seems about right. They’ve also been playing the local festivals as well as some out-of-state gigs. Donora are also opening. The trio’s third full-length album, Ha Ha Heart, came out December 2014, backed by the new single, “Memory.” The band gained national exposure when MTV series such as “Engaged and Underage” and “Cribs” began using their music. Finally, JD Eicher & the Goodnights will bring the pop-rock. The quartet released their third album, Into Place, in 2013, and they have opened for acts as diverse as Rod Stewart and Kelly Clarkson. This is the last concert at Hartwood Acres Park Amphitheater this year, so be sure to get in as much outdoor dancing as you can before autumn arrives once more. 5 p.m. 200 Hartwood Acres, Hampton and Indiana townships.
