Middle Waves has made a couple additions to its music lineup for the June 17-18 shindig at the Foellinger Outdoor Theatre campus. 

First up is the alternative hip-hop pop artist Lauren Sanderson, who is originally from Fort Wayne and currently based in Los Angeles. The Carroll High School alum is kicking down doors and has built a loyal following with her no-holds-barred honesty, relentless DIY work ethic, and electric persona. 

The other addition is LÜBS, another local standout that has been climbing the ranks as one of the most talked-about electronic dance artists in the Midwest. No doubt, he will be pumping electricity to the festival. 

Tickets can be purchased at middlewaves.com.

Come on down to The Clyde to see 311

Going, going, gone! A home run by The Clyde for the recent booking of 311 for Sunday, Sept. 11, at 8 p.m.

Widely regarded as one of the most entertaining and dynamic live bands in the U.S., 311 mixes rap, rock, reggae, funk, and more into their unique, hybrid sound. As veterans of more than 2,000 shows across 27 countries, 311 is one of the longest-running original lineups in rock, and they show no signs of letting up. 

Opening will be Tropidelic, who was at The Clyde a couple of years back with Badfish

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 20, at 10 a.m. online at clydetheatre.com, by phone at (800) 514-3849, or at The Clyde box office, any Wooden Nickel Records location, Neat Neat Neat Records, and Sweetwater Sound. 

Allman Brothers tribute at Sweetwater

On Wednesday, July 20, the Sweetwater Performance Pavilion will welcome Trouble No More, performing the Allman Brothers Band’s iconic album Eat a Peach, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. 

Trouble No More consists of an intergenerational mix of Allman Brothers Band descendants, collaborators, proteges, and extended “family” members. Their treatment of the classic songs is so eerily close to the original work, you can close your eyes and think you are listening to the real deal. 

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 20,  at 10 a.m. online at sweetwaterpavilion.com.
