It may have been over 10 years since Howie Day crooned the earworm lyrics “even the best fall down sometimes” over the soaring melody of his acoustic guitar in his platinum single “Collide,” but his star hasn’t fallen yet. The Maine native’s heartfelt songs have gained a devoted audience with four studio albums and strong, energetic live shows. Behind his warm, tenor vocals and radio-friendly pop hits, you’ll find the talents of a lifelong multi-instrumentalist — Day has been a pianist since the tender age of 5 and picked up guitar a few years later.

Saturday 8/1. $17-20, 7pm. The Southern Cafe and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
