EN VOGUE, SWV, SILK
7 p.m. Riverfest Amphitheatre. $20-$75.

If ever there was a lineup guaranteed to be a prelude to an evening of nonstop lovemaking, this would be it.

En Vogue is one of the biggest female R&B acts of all time, whose 1992 album "Funky Divas" launched the band into the pop stratosphere. "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," and "Free Your Mind" were massive hits, as was 1993's collaboration with Salt-N-Pepa "Whatta Man." Even if R&B wasn't your thing, if you were born between, say, 1960 and 1980 and you grew up in America and listened to the radio, those three songs are probably permanently seared into your mental jukebox.

SWV was also huge, with the band's debut "It's About Time" going double platinum in its first year. The Sisters With Voices had several Top 20 R&B hits, including "Right Here," "I'm So Into You," "Weak," "Always on My Mind" and more.

And if you can find a more getting-it-on-obsessed '90s R&B act (whose name isn't R. Kelly) than Silk, then I'll buy you a cassingle of the group's smash hit "Freak Me."
