The Lookout:

Five O’Clock Shadow, an all-vocal rock and pop band, will present a show at the Firehouse Center for the Arts on Saturday at 8 p.m.

By using amplification and basic effects, the Boston-based group doesn’t need instruments to create the same sound and energy as the typical rock band. The members have been featured on a number of TV shows and have sung for the Celtics, Patriots and Red Sox.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for members and seniors, and $16 for students. For more information, call the box office at 978-462-7336 or visit www.firehouse.org.

The Firehouse is located in Market Square, Newburyport.

An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m.
