For a band that started off playing rock, Dead Men's Hollow might be hitting its stride as a bluegrass act. The Music by the Lake summer concert series in City Park had something to do with that, said Dead Men's Hollow singer Amy Nazarov. "He was one of the earliest supporters of our band," Nazarov said of Kevin Moriarty, who is head of the Washington County Arts Council, the group organizing the series. Music by the Lake will feature a concert by a regional band every Saturday at City Park, from July 7 through Aug. 25. Most of the bands fall in the bluegrass, country rock and Southern gospel genres.

Everclear frontman and founder Art Alexakis might be 50 years old, but that's doesn't mean he's forgotten how to rock. "I think the one thing that when people go to see Everclear is that they're not prepared for how loud and rowdy we are as a rock band," he said during a telephone interview from his Pasadena, Calif., home. "We're a pretty rockin' band. " Everclear, which is best known for such hits as "Father of Mine," "AM Radio" and "I Will Buy You A New Life," will perform Saturday night at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, H Lounge, 750 Hollywood Drive, Charles Town, W.Va.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Even with a record deal and some national exposure, The Shackeltons are still Chambersburg's homeboys. The Shackeltons, a five-man rock band from the 'Burg, will perform at The Capitol Theatre on Friday. They'll be joined by Skeletonbreath, a Brooklyn trio of drums, guitar and violin. The last time The Herald-Mail and The Shackeltons spoke, back in January, the band was geeked about write ups from Rolling Stone and Spin.com praising the band's self-titled album, released Jan. 29. Since then, it's been a flurry of cross-country tour dates and gigs at music festivals -- including South by Southwest in March.

FREDERICK, Md. -- Let's just put it out there: Guitarist Mick Jones is the only original member left in Foreigner. This is a moot point, says Jeff Pilson, 51, bassist in the latest iteration of the Foreigner lineup. Pilson says regardless of whether a concert features the original band, "it's great to see a great band. " "I defy anyone to walk away from the show really unhappy," Pilson says.
