Weekly Live Music “HOT SPOTS” – 7/16-7/19/20

Here we are again, another weekend loaded with opportunities to get out and support live, local music. And, here we are again with new, tighter restrictions on some of the places you would go to see your favorite artists perform. The unfortunate reality is that some of the shows here may get cancelled or postponed but, let’s be optimistic for now. If you have to cancel an event please feel free to comment on the Facebook post or let me know and I will do my best to spread the word. If you are planning on going to an event, check with the venue to be sure it is still happening. Let’s all hope for the best and get out and support live music. Here’s what the weekend looks like.

The Bands AND the venues need your support, now more than ever. Be thoughtful of the employees and the performers and tip both whenever possible. Buying merchandise, on line or at a show, is another way you can support the musicians who are out here performing while they can.
