Jack’s back at the Gorge

Hawaiian ex-pro surfer Jack Johnson turned his chilled-out hobby into a platinum- selling career as a folk-pop balladeer.

Think of him as a Dave Matthews without all the jazzy technicality. A John Mayer at a beach campfire.

In other words, Johnson’s a soft-voiced guy who can fill the Gorge Amphitheater with hippies, sorority girls, high school students and parents with lighters held high.

And that’s exactly what he’ll do on Aug. 13 at 7 p.m.

He’s touring to support his latest album, “In Between Dreams,” which was released earlier this month.

Special guests Animal Liberation Orchestra and Matt Costa will open the show.

Tickets are $39.50, on sale today at noon through Ticketmaster, (509) 735-0500 or

Hear Native Voices at The Met

World-renowned Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai will join Hawaiian slack-key guitarist Keola Beamer in a celebration of American indigenous music at The Met on May 9 at 7:30 p.m.

Both musicians innovate using the traditional music of their cultures along with contemporary influences.

The show is part of a tour in support of the pair’s collaborative album, “Native Voices,” which is scheduled for release on Canyon Records in late spring or early summer.

Tickets are $30 and $20, through TicketsWest, (800) 325-SEAT or
