It’s a holiday weekend and in the middle of the summer, which means less music around these parts. The Visulite, for example, next hosts a gig on July 18th(!!!). That makes me sad. What doesn’t make me sad is that Greensky Bluegrass plays two sets Friday night at the Whitewater Center. That’s one set, a set break with fireworks, and a second set. Boom.
Times listed are when the show is scheduled to start, not when the doors are opened. Unless listed otherwise noted, prices are before taxes and fees.
- 7/3/15: Greensky Bluegrass, The Honeycutters, Shook Twins; US National Whitewater Center, 4pm, free. Music starts at 4pm, Greensky hits at 8pm. You do not want to miss them. Rolling Stone said Greensky is “representing the genre for a whole new generation.” What does that mean? Well, it means a lot of things, but bluegrass bands don’t typically jam for 15+ minutes fairly regularly or have big lighting rigs. “Jam” bands don’t typically feature a mandolin, a guitar, a banjo, a dobro and an upright bass. Greensky will make your ears happy and your legs tired.
- 7/1/15: Caroline Rose, The Devyl Nellys; Double Door Inn, 9pm, $12. Her site describes her sound as “gospel-meets-country-meets-blues-meets-alternative collection of toe-tapping, roadworthy stories and poetry set to music.” That’s enough for me. Good stuff.
