Weekend Entertainment | Shemekia Copeland and Blue Oyster Cult

You could do a lot worse than Warren, Ohio, on a Saturday night.

Especially this Saturday night, when a blues concert featuring Shemekia Copeland and Tommy Castro will take place at Packard Music Hall, while classic rock greats Blue Oyster Cult is on stage at the Robins Theatre.

It will be Copeland’s first time in the Mahoning Valley. The singer has an instantly recognizable and soulful voice, and she uses it to connect with audiences.

She is touring her new album, “Done Come Too Far.”

The concert will also include blues veteran Tommy Castro, who is no stranger to the Youngstown area and is always a welcome sight. Castro also has a new album, “A Bluesman Came to Town.”

As if Copeland and Castro aren’t enough, the lineup for concert also includes the sizzling Ana Popovic.
