Plenty to Come in Remaining 8 Great Slate by Ryan Smith

Tuesday, July 25

After serving up a hefty helping of Satisfaction with the International Rolling Stones Show and some Killer Queen earlier this month, 8 Great Tuesdays — the much-loved, annual, free, Port Erie-hosted concert series — continues through July and August at Liberty Park on Lake Erie.

The next installment presents The Commonheart, a Pittsburgh area-based outfit gaining plenty of traction with fans around the region with their skillful, high-energy, high-emotion, soulful sound and aesthetic. They’ll be joined that week by openers The Groove, making for another good summer weeknight at 8 Great Tuesdays.

8 Great Tuesdays continues every Tuesday from there, featuring One World Tribe (with openers Sun King Warriors) on Aug. 1; Stephanie Quail (with Next of Kin) on Aug. 8; The Earthquakers (with Bill Wharton The Sauce Boss) on Aug. 15; Rick Magee and the Roadhouse Rockers 25th Anniversary Party (with Miller and The Other Sinners) on Aug. 22; and, closing the season out, Eric Brewer’s Back to School Bash (with Six-Year Stretch) on Aug. 29.
