Sounds of the ­Coming Season

Calvert Marine Museum lures big names to Solomons

It’s getting closer. The warm nights of spring and summer are just around the corner with Calvert Marine Museum’s announcement of its first two outdoor concerts.
    Fast forward to Saturday, May 23, when Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Heart warm up the Waterside Pavilion. Heart sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson have wooed fans and topped charts since the 1970s with hits like Barracuda, These Dreams and 2012’s Red Velvet Car. Tickets go on sale March 24.
    It will be hotter still on Friday, July 3 when The Last Summer on Earth tour brings three Grammy-nominated bands to Solomons on its 21st of 36 stops.
    Headliners Barenaked Ladies have sold 14 million albums worldwide. Live shows are legendary for their on-stage banter and impromptu raps.
    The Violent Femmes, actually five guys, advertise themselves as producers of “decades of disorganized music.”
    Scottish Australian musician Collin Hay, the front man of Men at Work, returns to the stage with new material after a year of writing. His new album, Next Year People, comes out this week.
