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.

Agenda Picks

  • 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.
