Little River Band, Erika Blatnik tonight (August 11)



LITTLE RIVER BAND Remember "Cool Change"? "Reminiscing"? If you're of a certain age — or have ever perused Jack FM on a road trip — your answer is undoubtedly in the affirmative. But concertgoer beware: this LRB is only tangentially — and then some — related to the original sultans of soft rock. Founding members Beeb Birtles, Glenn Shorrock and Graeham Goble lost the rights to LRB moniker to a former member, Stephen Housden, who has apparently since left the band himself, leaving what appears to be ZERO original members. Speaking of former members, the "Little" River Band puts P-funk to shame, counting more than 30 (!). As such, you might as well get together with four or five of your closest friends and hit the local karaoke bar, if authenticity (or just plain reminisciiiin') is what you're after. $35-$45. Old Town Amphitheater at City Hall Black Street, Rock Hill, S.C. (Timothy C. Davis)


ERIKA BLATNIK It's tough to face the truth, but it's a fact of life that people have to move on sometimes. That's why it pains us to see Erika Blatnik leaving the Q.C. Her last show with The Lights, Fluorescent is on the 28th, but tonight's show is her last scheduled solo show. Find out why we gave her the award for Best Female Vocalist in 2007. She'll be missed, but will always be welcomed back. Opening for Dead Rabbits and Window God. $5, Snug Harbor, (Jeff Hahne)
