If you’ve never seen a live show of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor at the helm, tonight is likely to be the last time to witness it in Central PA. The classic voice of the 40-plus year old show announced his impending retirement in the last month, closing the book on “Guy Noir.” It’s also your chance to see Sarah Jarosz work her magic on mandolin, banjo and guitar (read my interview with the Grammy-nominated musician in this month’s Fly). The show kicks off at 7 p.m. at the American Music Theatre in Lancaster, and tickets range between $48-$98.
Even though they hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada, The Bros. Landreth are currently making some of the finest Americana music today. Made up of brothers Joey and Dave Landreth (along with Ryan “Rhino” Voth and Ariel Posen), The Bros. Landreth are sure to get people moving at Long’s Park in Lancaster with their blend of blues, country and rock. The show is free and starts at 7:30 p.m.
Devix – aka York resident Eric Torres – is quickly becoming a master of looping songs, incorporating guitar, drums, keyboards and more into his original and cover tunes. It’s an impressive feat to watch as he seamlessly blends all the musical elements together in his one-man band. Devix opens for Ian J and Matthew Ruth on the Tiki Deck at Fat Daddy’s. The show runs from 4-8 p.m. and is free to attend.
Aaron Miller and Evan Kirkley are primarily known locally for their work with the Harrisburg/Philly-based electronic pop rock band Minshara, but tonight they present their own side project – “The Joint.” The show combines Miller’s DJ skills and Kirkley’s drumming for a unique performance (it’s also a joint birthday show for the two band members). Kicking off at River City Blues Club in Harrisburg at 9 p.m., the show also features opener Cm3b4ck. Tickets are $6 at the door.
