It’s that moment when the house lights go down and the audience erupts: a drumbeat punches through the darkness, and the stage lights — almost blindingly bright at first — reveal a killer band ready to unleash a catalog of classic hits like none other. That familiar snarl of a slide guitar rips open the room, and you know you’re about to experience a bad-to-the-bone icon at his very best.

George Thorogood and The Destroyers are throwing a Rock Party for 2017, and you’re invited when they come to Penn’s Peak at 8 p.m. June 11.

While Justin Timberlake had a showstopping moment alongside Chris Stapleton at the 2015 Country Music Association Awards, it was the Backstreet Boys who shined brightly at the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards.

The boy band had the night’s liveliest moment Sunday in Las Vegas: the fivesome brought the party vibe to life while singing their classic “Everybody (Backstreet Back)” along with duo Florida Georgia Line.

“Brooklyn” is an enjoyable, uplifting and entertaining film that can be recommended for its wonderful screenplay and impressive performance by Saoirse Ronan (Oscar supporting actress nominee, “Atonement,” 2007) as Ellis, an Irish immigrant who immigrates in 1952 to Brooklyn, where she’s torn between a life with a new boyfriend and her old life back home.
