  • THURSDAY, July 13 — “All-American Rejects”

Vocalist/bassist Tyson Ritter and guitarist Nick Wheeler were best friends in high school in Stillwater, Oklahoma, when they founded The All-American Rejects in 1999. And while their emo-pop band has traveled far and wide and sold millions of albums in the years since, their music retains an irrepressible energy and infectious scrappiness, two qualities that seem quintessentially teenaged in the best sense. They’ve also always understood the lasting value of big sticky melodies, a lesson they absorbed from a wide range of early influences that included Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, as well as emo forebears such as Weezer and Jimmy Eat World. Already fully realized on their 2002 indie hit “Swing, Swing,” The All-American Rejects’ catchy mix of arena rock, power pop, and emo soon landed them a deal with DreamWorks. Later hits like 2005’s “Dirty Little Secret” and 2008’s “Gives You Hell” — which hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart — confirmed the wide appeal of Ritter and Wheeler’s sometimes snarky and always punchy songwriting.

  • FRIDAY, July 14 — Blue Öyster Cult

For over five decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

  • SATURDAY, July 15 — Ashley McBryde

Ashley McBryde began her career playing country songs in rural biker bars and is now a Grammy Award winner! McBryde closed out 2019 with ACM New Female Artist, CMT Breakout Artist, a New Artist of the Year win at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards and two nominations for the 2020 GRAMMYs for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.” Her follow-up Never Will was tagged by Rolling Stone as one of the most anticipated of the year alongside NPR, who also ranked her Top 10 RIAA Platinum-Certified single “One Night Standards” as one of the best songs of 2019. The album earned McBryde a 2021 GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album, making Never Will the only album nominated for Country Album of the Year by the ACMs, CMAs and the Recording Academy in the same award season. Her GRAMMY-winning duet with Carly Pearce, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” went all the way to No. 1 and earned McBryde and Pearce the ACM and CMA award for Musical Event of the Year.

  • SUNDAY, July 16 —Los Nuevos Rebeldes

Los Nuevos Rebeldes is a Mexican group. It was formed in Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, in 1999. It gained success with its songs, such as: “El Calender”, “Quizás”, “Masacre en el Cajoncito”, “EM Grande” and “El Niño”. The group owes its name, on the one hand, to a relative who belonged to Los Rebeldes del Norte and, on the other, to the original sound that it has had since its inception, which has led them to win multiple gold and platinum records, for its high sales in Mexico and the United States. During their career, they have released a series of albums, such as: “La trapa de la Fiera”, “Soldado Imperial”, “La Gran Trajectory”, “Corridos Ke Mandan” and “More rebels than ever”.
