1. Rockers to watch: Hawkeyes
The Hawkeyes’ first show was in a smoky club with cheap beer. From there, the band has been influenced to write heartfelt tunes representative of their hometown of Pittsburgh.
The rockers have shared the stage with big names like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Marcy Playground, Lit, Phil Vassar, Blackberry Smoke, Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes), Bob Mould (Husker Du), Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real, Wild Adriatic and more.
The Hawkeyes will tear it up on stage at 10 p.m., Saturday. Admission is free.

2. Meet ‘The Music Man’
Con artist Harold Hill is working on a new scheme in popular musical “The Music Man.”
The slick-talking Hill dupes the residents of River City into buying uniforms and instruments for a boys band that he promises to organize, despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from his funny bone.
You’ll see silly the con man marching to the beat of his own drum at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and at 2 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $17 to $32.
