Night Ranger 

9 p.m. Sunday, May 25. Rib America Festival at World War Memorial Park, North 13th and Chestnut streets

The annual Rib America Festival always offers a little slice of Americana: folks eating sauced-up, off-the-bone barbecue while listening to the deathless strains of classic rock. This year's festival brings former Styx leader Dennis DeYoung on Friday night and one-hit wonders the Atlanta Rhythm Section on Saturday afternoon (remember "So Into You"?), but the real attraction is Sunday headliners Night Ranger. Arena rock rarely got bigger and more epic than 1984's "Sister Christian." Sure, the lyrics are nonsense and the title has led no small amount of ridicule for guys named Christian (ahem), but when drummer and singer Kelly Keaggy offers you a chance to go "motorin,'" you can't refuse.
