In this possibly-post-COVID haze we call reality, it’s hard to know what’s what anymore.
Are people driving crazier than usual? Maybe. Are high prices changing the way we live? Doesn’t look like it. Could the Bills finally get it done this year??…!?!!??
This month in live music is an exercise in things not being exactly what they seem. From Flogging Molly to Bleachers to “Weird” Al, there’s a lot of dependable talent on the docket. But there are also a lot of diamonds in the rough. Not exactly household names that look promising. Vision Video, Arrows in Action, Haunted Summer and the Farrow album release party are all worth checking out. You never know. One of them could become a new fav.
As always, this is not a comprehensive list of live music. If there’s a good one we missed, sound off in the comments. These shows may or may not be sold out (canceled) as you read these words. Now get out there and enjoy some live music!!
Did one of these events get canceled, rescheduled, or postponed? Send us a note!
