This is your list of shows and festivals for the Fourth of July and the week to follow. There is plenty of incredible live music to hear, so get out and hear something good. I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue name. Besides these shows and festivals, there are fairly comprehensive lists of both on the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages, respectively. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!
HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
