Update: Merriweather Post Pavilion has announced its second show of the season: Lady Antebellum, the hugely successful pop-country trio.

Common will be at Sound Garden Thursday to sign autographs.

The Baltimore R&B singer and rapper has a couple of projects out, starting with his autobiography, "One Day, It'll All Make Sense;" a recently released album, "The Dreamer, the Believer;" and a collaboration with rapper Nas that is scheduled to be released sometime this year. His appearance at Sound Garden is set for 5:30 p.m. Admission is free.


Nickelback is back on tour to promote new album "Here and Now," which was released in November. They've enlisted 90s alternative rock bands Bush and Seether as support.
