Brad Yoder at Daily Grind

Singer/songwriter Brad Yoder dominates the Pittsburgh coffeehouse circuit. He's released five albums since 1992 and performs more than 150 shows a year. But Yoder doesn't just do coffee gigs; he also plays colleges, clubs, cafes and festivals. The guitarist has opened for the Cowboy Junkies and Robyn Hitchcock, and some of his tunes have been used on TV shows. Yoder's sound is reminiscent of later Kenny Loggins, and his nasally voice is not unlike "Weird Al" Yankovic's. But that's where the similarity stops. Yoder plays at the Daily Grind in Short Pump Saturday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. Free. 360-1565. — Olivia Beatty

Hootie & the Blowfish at Innsbrook After Hours

A nasty staph infection debilitated lead singer Darius Rucker this summer and led to a postponement of an Innsbrook After Hours gig. Now, a healthier Hootie & the Blowfish plays a rescheduled concert Friday, Sept. 14. The group's become ubiquitous since 1994's "Cracked Rear View" first swept the airwaves, but it's also branched out into a few solo projects and a charity golf tournament along the way. Love them or not, they still deliver a sound akin to your favorite Friday-night bar band — something that has kept fans coming back since the heyday of alternative rock. Tickets for the original concert will be honored for the new date at 6 p.m. at the Snagajob.com Pavilion. $12.50-$35. Call 794-6700 or visit www.innsbrookafterhours.com. — Colby Rogers

Tea Leaf Green at the Science Museum

With only three studio releases since forming in 1999, Tea Leaf Green has built a nationwide fan base primarily on its manic tour schedule. Self-admitted tour junkies, the rock band plays an average 125 dates a year and is especially fond of music festivals. The music's slightly progressive rock and piano-heavy quality goes perfect with good times and beers. Catch Tea Leaf Green as part of the Science Museum's Swingin' on the Tracks concert series Thursday, Sept. 13, at 5:30 p.m. $12. Call 864-1400 or visit www.swinginonthetracks.com. — C.R.
