Tickets are $35-$75

Dwight Yoakam will perform songs from Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars, his latest album he says has been gratifying partly “because the songs feel new for me,” and partly because of the proper salute he was finally able to give bluegrass. “I hope we did justice to the legacy of that genre and kept the spirit of reckless abandon,” Yoakam says.


Queen Nation
Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2023, 8:15 p.m.
Tickets are $22.50-$27.50

Queen Nation is an amazingly accurate tribute to a ’70s-’80s Queen concert and features Gregory Finsley as the Freddie-like frontman. As the West Coast’s longest running re-creation, the fully costumed band consists of four musicians who all sing and perform in character while playing live note-for-note renditions of classic Queen songs. They were inducted into the California Music Hall of Fame’s 2020 inaugural class.
