It’s hard to believe October is here already. And of course, with the weather getting cooler, outdoor live music may be harder to come by. You won’t have that problem this weekend, however. There’s still plenty places to choose from with many of your local favorites. So, get out and support the bars and restaurants that help keep live music going strong through all the obstacles. And, of course, support the musicians who are out there working to make your weekend a little bit better.
