The hardcore punk outfit Beartooth have announced dates for their upcoming “The Below Tour Part 2” in support of their fourth studio album, Below, which was released earlier this year. 

As a matter of fact, the second leg of the headline trek kicks off on Saturday, March 26, at 7 p.m. right here in Fort Wayne at The Clyde Theatre. The tour runs until May and follows the original “Below Tour,” which took place this past summer and was pretty much sold out at every venue. 

Also appearing on the bill are Silverstein, The Devil Wears Prada, and Erra

If you missed Beartooth when they performed at The Clyde in ’18, get ready for a nonstop skid ride through the underbelly of post-hardcore metal in a high-powered, audience-engaging catharsis. 

General admission tickets are on sale now at, by calling (800) 514-3849, The Clyde box office, all Wooden Nickel locations, Neat Neat Neat Records, and Sweetwater.   

’70s crooners Little River Band to perform 

Get ready to take in the smooth ’70s soft rock vocal harmonies of The Little River Band on Sunday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. at The Clyde. With chart-topping hits, including “Reminiscing,” “Lady,” “Lonesome Loser,” and “The Night Owls,” the band continues to record and tour throughout the world. 

Last year, the band released a new album, Black Tie, which contains a collection of their hits and newer songs recorded with a symphony orchestra during a series of concerts. 

Reserved seating tickets are on sale now and would make for a great stocking stuffer for that classic rocker on your list. 

Mammoth WVH, Dirty Honey to rock at Piere’s

Speaking of concert announcements, Piere’s hit a home run with the signing of the “Young Guns” co-headlining tour featuring up-and-coming rockers Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey

The 30-date run will make a Fort Wayne stop on the evening of Thursday, Jan. 20, at 8 p.m. Both bands are coming off major tours this summer, with Mammoth WVH opening for Guns N’ Roses and Dirty Honey supporting the Black Crowes. 

This tour is in support of both artist’s self-titled debut albums that have gained rave reviews. Both of their debut singles — Dirty Honey’s “When I’m Gone” and Mammoth WVH’s “Distance” — occupied the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. 

Tickets for this all-ages shindig can be purchased via,, all three Wooden Nickel locations, and Neat Neat Neat Records. 

Visit Sweetwater to hear Smooth Edge 2

Fresh off a performance at the Baker Street Centre Christmas Show, Smooth Edge 2 will perform on the Crescendo Club stage at Sweetwater on Wednesday, Dec. 22, at noon. The band quickly developed a reputation for their stellar a cappella sound and highly energetic and entertaining live shows. Come grab lunch or a coffee and get ready to take in an arrangement of songs ranging from current pop hits to American classics and jazz standards. 

The Live at Lunch series continues on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at noon when The Conversationalists take the stage. This will be a euphonic experience of solid bass, on-point drumming, and a firm foundation for drumming guitars, melodic keys, and soaring vocals with sweet harmonies. Both performances are free.
