With summer on its way out, we’re sure you are trying to squeeze the most out of it at this point. We noticed this weekend is especially happenin’ so we thought we would suggest three events that could amp up your fun level this Sunday. Each of our picks represent a different genre and we even found a free event for those who are watching their wallet. While we usually take it easy on Sundays, we fully plan on making the most of this one!
Option 1: Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings at Hartwood Acres
Sharon Jones and her posse sell out every time they play here, so the venue of Hartwood Acres should be large enough to accommodate the type of crowd she draws. If you’re a fan of soul, funk, Motown or a woman with a crazy set of pipes, this one’s for you. It’s also the only free event on our list, so grab a cooler and a few blankets and hop on over to the North Hills for some Sunday evening soul. Openers are Title Town DJs J.Malls and Gordy, who will be setting the tone for the evening. If nothing else, go to see the grannies get down! The show starts at 7:30PM.
Option 2: Old Crow Medicine Show and The Lumineers at Stage AE
Stage AE continues their stellar summer lineup with a show that surprised everyone by recently moving outside due to strong ticket sales. This can be partly attributed to The Lumineers being Old Crow‘s tour support, as they have one of the top 10 singles in the country right now and bluegrass/folk music is gaining a steady momentum among music fans a result of bands like The Avett Brothers, Fleet Foxes and Mumford and Sons rising in popularity among music buyers and radio listeners. This show has a door time of 6:30 and The Lumineers start at 7:30. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased here.
Option 3: Ghostland Observatory at Mr. Smalls
If you didn’t have a chance to catch Ghostland at Mr. Smalls the last time they came through, we highly recommend going to this! We were so impressed we went two nights in a row. Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of their music, the light show alone is worth the ticket price. It is an incredible, all-engrossing full sensory experience. Don’t go to this sober. Or alone. You’re gonna want to party in this environment, so if you plan on attending, you might want to take a half day Monday. Why not? Make up for it when it’s cold and too snowy to go anywhere. This show starts at 8PM. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased here.
