BIG HEAD TODD & THE MONSTERS
Friday, May 4, 8pm
Led by singer, guitarist and songwriter Todd Park Mohr, the band will perform their popular songs such as “Bittersweet” and “Broken Hearted Sailor,” as well as the traditional blues tunes that found them headlining the nationwide Centennial Tribute to Robert Johnson tour.
GLEN CAMPBELL “The Farewell Tour”

On his farewell tour, country music icon and crossover pop hitmaker Glen Campbell performs his classic songs such as “Gentle on My Mind,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “Galveston” and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” as well as nuggets from his fine new album, “Ghost On the Canvas.” Instant People (featuring Cat & Ashley Campbell) will open the show.
MATTHEW SWEET “The Girlfriend Tour”

The alternative power-pop rocker performs his classic 1990s album “Girlfriend” in its entirety, as well as much more.
