We have two local favorites opening for national acts this weekend. Lakini’s Rooster opens up for Hinder at the Sherman Theater on Friday and Kendal Conrad opens for Dennis Quaid at the Sellersville Theater on Sunday. There are two more brand new open mic nights in the area – Weis Pub in Macungie on Sunday at 4pm and The Iron Mule in Easton at 7pm on Wednesday. And, of course, it’s Halloween Weekend with costume parties and festivities at several area venues to go along with your regular dose of live music. Come out and support everything local.
