3 can't-miss shows: Beatles on the roof, dreambeaches

Beatles Rooftop Tribute, 6 p.m. Aug. 24, Hydraulic Hearth (716 Swan St.), free.

After a successful first run last summer, the Larkinville hot spot is bringing back its rooftop tribute to the Fab Four for a second go-around.

Because of the popularity of the inaugural event, the organizers have closed down Swan Street and will open up Larkin Square for much-needed space and breathing room. Let's just say last year's rather intense heat and the close proximity of the packed Beatles fans was not a pleasant combo.

Classic rock-indebted act Stoneflower will once again set up shop on top of the Hearth to pay tribute to the Beatles's final performance in 1969, a surprise set at the band's Apple Corps headquarters in London.

dreambeaches / Oh Manitou, 10 p.m. Aug. 24, Lockhouse Distillery & Bar (41 Columbus St.), $5.

Last seen sharing Lockhouse's production room floor, Cobblestone Live alums dreambeaches and Oh Manitou will once again team for a choice double bill as the distillery's summer series nears its end.

Buffalo's art-pop act dreambeaches has been putting the finishing touches on new material, the follow up to 2016's debut EP "Habits." The new music is rumored to be released later this fall.

In the meantime, the quartet recently shared the clip for "Graduation Day," the first single from "Habits." Check it out below.

As for On Manitou, the Rochester indie act just shared its debut EP "From the Forest," a five-pack of alternative radio-ready tracks, in May. Fans of Grouplove or Young the Giant would be wise to catch the sister-city group if they missed its Cobblestone Live set last month.

Shock and Awe: La Luna Lives!, 10 p.m. Aug. 26, location TBA, $20-$26.

Those pining for the good old days of dancing well into the morning at Soundlab (RIP) or a time when going down to Chippewa wasn't THAT awful, then the Rise Collaborative crew has the event for you.

For one night, Jesse Zenger, former DJ of the beloved dance series Shock and Awe, and from La Luna Wednesdays' Jena Nixon will be teaming up to deliver an indie dance party featuring a healthy dose of late-2000s Buffalo nostalgia.

While the warehouse's location will not be announced until the day prior to the party on the event's Facebook page, the promoters have promised that the huge space will be centrally located with plenty of parking (ride-sharing would probably be a good idea for this, though), and a food truck, because no Buffalo event is complete without one these days.
