SATURDAY, JUNE 14 2014 >>>

1. Sometimes it's hard to think of how to describe a group, other than by saying that they're a fucking solid rock group. Dude York is so adept at making ridiculously catchy, wiry indie rock that it's enough to make one tongue-tied. On their most recent LP, Dehumanize, Dude York dip their toes into supercharged R&B, leaving everything as muscular and straightforward, but bringing in a welcome swagger. Catch the band with So Pitted, FF, Trees and Timber at 8 p.m. in Bob's Java Jive.

2. LeMay - America's Car Museum is celebrating 50 years of the Ford Mustang with Masters of Mustang, which opens today showcasing more than 20 of the most sought after pony cars in history. The Mustang exhibit's opening coincides with Father's Day weekend and ACM's annual "Hoods Up" event in which the engine bays of more than 100 vehicles can be viewed through June 20. The hoods open at 10 a.m.

3. P.S. I Love You Festival kicks off at 11 a.m. at Olympia's Percival Landing featuring music by The Oly Mountain Boys, Holy Oly Girls, Dana Lyons, Kim Archer, Che Oke Ten, One World Taiko, Pan Leggo Steel Drums, Mukana Marimba and Morpho-Man. 

4. The 100.7 The Wolf inaugural Hometown Throwdown Concert and Homestyle Chili Cook Off kicks off at 1 p.m. in Cheney stadium featuring International Chili Society sanctioned chili contest and rising stars in country music, including Dan + Shay, Danielle Bradbery, Lindsay Ell, American Young, Joel Crause, Kelleigh Bannen, Joey Hyde, Rae Solomon, Sammy Steele and Robbie Walden. The after party will be held at Steel Creek American Whiskey Company.

5. Masterworks wraps up its 33rd season with a tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes at 7:30 p.m. in the Washington Center. The community choir under the direction of Gary Witley will present a lively line-up of Frank Sinatra favorites. "People who know Sinatra will know everything that we sing," says Witley, "but there will still be room for surprises in the arrangements. For example, ‘Blue Moon,' a ballad sung by Sinatra, will be done as doo-wop." The program will include "That Old Black Magic" and "Just One of Those Things," and guest soloist Karen Karnes singing "All the Way."
