Chris Robinson Brotherhood

Fri., July 20, 9 p.m.

Singer-guitarist Chris Robinson’s tenure with the Black Crowes is well documented, particularly his anxiety with the limiting expectations placed on him and that band. The Crowes’ final tour in 2013 revealed even more clearly to Robinson how dysfunctional the band had become. With a real rock ‘n’ roll legacy enveloping the band across more than 20 years, he found himself trapped in the confines of the same old material and caught up in long-standing financial disputes among bandmates and the label. Not conducive to creative growth. Lumped somewhat into the national jam band scene, the CRB certainly does tend toward the improvisational side of music. Expect to hear the band stretch out when it plays tonight as part of a tour to support last year's Barefoot in the Head. (Eric Sandy) $26 ADV, $31 DOS

Taste of America

Sat., July 21

Budweiser and Scene have teamed up for Taste of America, a special "family-style dining experience" that takes place today at Whiskey Island and Wendy Park. The event will feature "bold and beautiful dishes" from James Beard Award nominee chef Jill Vedaa from Salt — items like Grandma's Potato Salad, cucumber slaw, and beer-braised pulled pork sandwiches. Admission is $25 per person and includes the meal, three beers and Budweiser swag; you can purchase tickets on the website. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland. (Niesel) 2800 Whiskey Island Rd.,

Euclid Beach Park Day

Sat., July 21

Locals still fondly remember Euclid Beach Park, one of the most prominent former amusement parks in Cleveland. Though the place closed in 1969, its memories remain. Four years ago, the Western Reserve Historical Society (WRHS), Cleveland Carousel Society and Euclid Beach Park Now partnered to restore the 1910 Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel to operating condition. At that time, WRHS also launched Euclid Beach Park Day to commemorate the amusement park. This year's festivities take place today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cleveland History Center. There will be unlimited rides on the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel, lawn games, food trucks, pony rides and more. In addition, Lolly the Trolly will offer special Euclid Beach Park tours featuring storytelling and narration. Check the website for ticket prices and more details. (Niesel)

Christmas in July

Sat., July 21

As we're nearly halfway to Christmas, Tremont's A Christmas Story House & Museum is ready to celebrate. While the house commemorates the holiday season no matter the month, today's annual Christmas in July festivities feature special guests and goodies. This year's guest stars include Patty Johnson, a cranky elf from A Christmas Story and even Santa Claus himself. Johnson will be in the gift shop from 3 to 5 p.m., signing pictures, telling stories about the film and inspiring visitors to quit dragging their feet, just like she did when the Parkers went to Higbee's in the 1983 film classic. Also, expect a kids' table, face paint, and themed Jack Frost Donuts, featuring movie icons like the infamous leg lamp, pink bunnies and air rifles. Then go try the Red Ryder air rifle range in the museum's backyard. Finally, in preparation for this year's bumpus-themed 5-K/10-K race, A Christmas Story Run, the house has invited the Cleveland Animal Protective League and City Dogs to bring adoptable canines out to the event. Consult the website for ticket prices. (Sarah Parr)

Lady Antebellum/Darius Rucker/Russell Dickerson

Fri., July 20, 7 p.m.

Lady Antebellum has all the makings of a great country group. With a strong female vocalist, carefully-selected songs and a pop-infused flare, the band’s rise to success was no surprise. “Need You Now,” the band’s breakthrough hit, is the perfect country song. Lead singer Hillary Scott’s vocals are complimented by the backup singing that feels more like a feature, even owning its own verse. This duet-style recording is not uncommon for the band and is another thing that gives them a leg up. The alcohol-infused missing an ex-lover tale is a cliché, but this one hits the nail on the head with innovative ideas like the faded voicemail that opens the song and the strong execution of talented guitar playing. Darius Rucker, who shares the bill, is known for his fan-favorite cover of “Wagon Wheel” and his role as the lead singer in ’90s rock band Hootie & the Blowfish. It’s no accident that Rucker succeeded in becoming extremely visible in two entirely different genres. This is a skilled musician and a clever songwriter that has landed himself an irreplaceable spot in the music industry. (Halle Weber) $30.75-$96.75
