Every weekend, Twin Hi-Way Drive-In’s dual screens come to life with double-feature showings from a schedule of current films. Viewers tune their radios to the audio track’s frequency, directly transmitting the movie’s dialogue and soundtrack to their car, or fiddle with the knob to recast Ira Glass as the lead in Die Hard. The concession stand dispenses movie-night treats, such as hot dogs, popcorn, and sodas. On Saturdays, the drive-in hosts classic-car shows, where owners can show off their ’67 Mustang or their ’66 GTO.
As a rising strummer who opened her voice up at the age of eight, Carlile started her career as a backup for an Elvis impersonator before eventually performing alongside the Indigo Girls, Chris Isaak, Tori Amos, and Shawn Colvin. This concert positions the genre-jumping songstress alongside the most epic of backing bands, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Resistant to labels, Carlile's jams have been called country, folk, pop, and all the blended permutations in between. On June 30, she'll likely be playing a number of selections from her recent third album, Give Up the Ghost, which debuted at number 26 on the Billboard 200.
The show is produced by Pittsburgh Musical Theater and takes place in the historic Byham Theater. All tickets are in Gold Circle seating and can be picked up before the performance at the Theater Square box office or the day of at the Byham Theater box office. Children's tickets are regularly priced at $25.
