June 10 – O.A.R.
The band O.A.R., short for Of A Revolution, got their start as classmates at Ohio State University in the late ’90s.

June 17 – Steel Pulse
British reggae band Steel Pulse incorporates the best of roots rock reggae while fusing it with elements of Latin and jazz music. Throughout its career, the band has received multiple Grammy nominations for albums like Victims, that featured the single “Taxi Driver,” as well as Rastafari Centennial and Rage and Fury. They also won a Grammy for the album Babylon the Bandit that features the song “Not King James Version.” tickets to Steel Pulse
June 24 – Gavin DeGraw
Singer songwriter Gavin DeGraw got what seemed slow, but was a sure start in the music scene following the release of his debut album Chariot in 2003. He gained a small following in New York the year it was released, but by 2004, DeGraw had a Top 10 hit with the single “I Don’t Want to Be” off the album. The album was then re-released as Chariot + Stripped where the original title track “Chariot” soared through the charts and the album earned double platinum certification. He continued to have hit songs, including “Follow Through” and “In Love with a Girl.” tickets to Gavin DeGraw
July 1 – Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are like a modern-day version of Tina Turner stroking the microphone in a spangled mini-dress while fronting the Rolling Stones circa Sticky Fingers. The proof is there for all to hear on the band’s third album for Hollywood Records, hitting Spring 2010, and marks an artistic breakthrough for a vital young band caught in the act of fulfilling its immense promise. Little wonder that Grace and her cohorts have chosen to title it, directly and emphatically, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. tickets to Grace Potter
July 8 – Puddle of Mudd
The alt-metal quartet Puddle of Mudd has several hit songs to its name, including “Blurry,” “Drift & Die,” “She Hates Me” and “Away From Me,” among others. The band has continuously released albums, with the most recent Icon: The Best of Puddle of Mudd in November 2010. tickets to Puddle of Mudd
July 15 – Neon Trees
Like their name, Neon Trees are a combination of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both melodic and hard-hitting, their anthems of adolescent angst, longing, love lost and found, delivered with the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve passion that only comes from hard work and commitment. tickets to Neon Trees
July 29 – Lifehouse
The alt-metal quartet Puddle of Mudd has several hit songs to its name, including “Blurry,” “Drift & Die,” “She Hates Me” and “Away From Me,” among others. The band has continuously released albums, with the most recent Icon: The Best of Puddle of Mudd in November 2010. tickets to Lifehouse
August 5 – Weezer
Weezer first hit the music scene in the mid-’90s and has been a driving force ever since.

The band has gone on hiatus several times throughout the years for members to work on side projects. They joined forces once again and the 2005 song “Beverly Hills” off the album Make Believe received platinum status, keeping Weezer that household name. tickets to Weezer
