L.A. alt-rockers Weezer follow the Los Angeles Dodgers into town for a postgame concert at Turner Field. First, you'll see Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and the division-leading Braves take on the Western powerhouse Blue Crew, led by All-Stars Clayton Kershaw and Yasiel Puig. Then Weezer, the platinum-selling band that's released three self-titled albums, takes the stage with hits including "Pork and Beans," "Perfect Situation" and "Beverly Hills." Lead singer Rivers Cuomo and the group broke through in a big way in 1994, with their debut disc spawning huge singles like "Undone -- The Sweater Song," "Buddy Holly" and "Say It Ain't So," all of which came with creative videos that went into heavy rotation on MTV. They plan to release their 10th studio disc, Everything Will Be All Right in the End, in 2014. Learn More

Reviews & Ratings
Mary Chapin Carpenter celebrates her latest album, The Age of Miracles, which was released in the spring of 2010 to widespread critical acclaim. Over the course of a 12-album recording career, Carpenter has won five GRAMMY Awards and sold over 13 million records. The New York Times heralds the new music as being “quietly spellbinding…the music of of Ms. Carpenter is an unclassifiable hybrid of pop, folk, and country.” Carpenter has always professed a love for all kinds of music, and those influences come together in songs that speak to the most personal of life’s details as well as to the most universal.
Shawn Colvin is one of the leading lights of the so-called “new folk movement” that began in the late ‘80s. Although she grew out of the “woman with a guitar” school, she kept the form fresh with a diverse approach, avoiding the genre’s cliched sentiments and all-too-often formulaic arrangements in favor of a more personal, pop-influenced style. Colvin’s debut record won the GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album in 1991, but it was her 1997 single, “Sunny Came Home,” that firmly catapulted her into the mainstream.
