An American pop punk/alternative rock band from Jacksonville, Fla., Yellowcard arrived on the music scene in 1997 and became a contender in the industry a few years later with the band’s second single, “Ocean Avenue.” Other popular hits to arrive from the band members’ creative collaborations include “Lights and Sounds,” “Here I Am Alive,” “Be the Young,” “See Me Smiling” and “Light Up the Sky. The group’s latest album, Lift A Sail, was released in October 2014 and was greatly influenced by the 2013 snowboarding accident that left vocalist/guitarist Ryan Key’s wife paralyzed from the waist down. He also touches on violinist Sean Makin’s bout with thyroid cancer and the band’s loss of drummer Longineu “LP” Parsons. Hear Yellowcard’s new music as well as the pieces that earned them a large fan following from their early years, on Saturday, May 2, at Cain’s Ballroom. The show begins at 7:30 p.m., and Yellowcard will be accompanied by Finch and The Downtown Fiction. Tickets range from $20 to $35. For more information, visit
