So, here in the States, it’s 4th of July weekend. That means fireworks, barbecues, parties and, of course, tons of live music. This week on the Mid-Week Beat, I thought I’d focus on music events that are happening around this great United States this weekend that represent the melting pot that is America.
We got cabaret, hip hop, electronic music, island music, avante garde, punk rock, indie rock and a tribute to the Rat Pack among other incredible events. This is just a sampling of what’s going on around the country this weekend.
Don’t see your town in the list? Well be sure to check out our site to see what’s going on in your neck of the woods.
Remember to celebrate responsibly and enjoy the long weekend!
