U.R.B., My Dog Junior, and Justin Bailey are set to perform the inaugural Stein Streak event at Trubble Public House in Roanoke on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 3-8 p.m. 

The event will have something for everyone: a fun run/walk/crawl (Stein Streak), Trubble beer garden, a fall-themed farmers market, kid’s corner, a chili cook-off for charity, and live music. 

If you are interested in the Stein Streak, participants can choose from a 2-, 4-, or 6-mile course. No matter what distance you choose, you will receive an 8-ounce Trubble beer before and after the race. Other race packet goodies include an exclusive race T-shirt, and, for early registrants, a commemorative pint glass. It’s only $25, and you can get signed up by going to and selecting “events.” 

Club Room hosting pre-party before 311 show

By now, you probably have a good idea if you are attending the 311 show at The Clyde on Sunday, Sept. 11. If not, you best be deciding, as I’m not so sure tickets will last until the day of the show. 

Anyhow, I know it’s the first Sunday for football, but try your best to get to the Club Room before the show for the 311 pre-party. From 3-7 p.m., ALT 102.3 will be onsite for a 311-inspired menu, ticket giveaways, and live music by U.R.B. 

Reserve a table by calling (260) 747-0989. 

Come as you are for Nirvana tribute at Ruin

The Ruin is set to bring a full grunge experience on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. when Smells Like Nirvana hits the stage. 

Hailing from Chicago, the band is comprised of seasoned pros and diehard fans of Nirvana that is a haunting episode of grunge-filled angst and rock prowess. They have the look and definitely have the sound of Cobain and Co. The band will perform songs from Nevermind, In Utero, Bleach, and B-sides

Opening the show will be Dead Original, which is made up of the same members of Smells Like Nirvana. That’s right, the guys typically open their shows with their band of original music, then close with the Nirvana tribute. 

Dead Original is a blend of groove, grungy vibes, melodic hooks, and lyrics for the brooding soul. 

This is an all-ages show with tickets $12 in advance and $15 day. They can be purchased at  

B-Side welcoming in David Wax Museum

An Evening with David Wax Museum will be Saturday, Sept. 17, at The B-Side at One Lucky Guitar from 8-10 p.m. 

The husband-wife duo of David Wax and Suz Slezak are a folk and roots band with Mexican inspiration. They have performed at the B-Side on a couple occasions, and in 2018 they performed at Middle Waves with a seven-piece band. 

This 18-and-older event will run you $20 in advance and $25 day of show. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite. 

Hotel Tango Fort Wayne throwing party

Hotel Tango Fort Wayne will be celebrating the distillery’s eighth anniversary on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 5-11 p.m.

The bash will have a whole slew of festivities, including a sip and shop, complimentary ’Shmallow & bourbon samples, a s’mores station, Rudy’s cigars, hourly giveaways, and live music by Jess Thrower

For those of you not familiar, ‘Shmallow is their toasted marshmallow bourbon. Sounds tasty! See you there!
