5 Live Music Musts: Friday, September 20th

Friday, September 20, 2013

 

 

Country superstar Toby Keith closes out the summer season at Comcast this weekend.

Fall brings a great festival and some first-rate shows to town this week…

Life Is Good

First up this weekend, we’ll hit a major festival for trendy optimists and hip families down the road in Canton, MA. The “Life is Good Festival” features great music, food, fundraising, and lots of cool activities. The annual event draws thousands and raises millions for the Life is Good Foundation. Artists including Hall and Oates, Jack Johnson, The Roots, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will be there. The festival runs all day Saturday and Sunday – tickets are $65, $20 for kids. For more details, check our preview on GoLocal.

Abbey Road the Album

Tonight, there’s a rare chance to hear one of the greatest albums ever recorded. Classic Albums Live has The Beatles “Abbey Road” live at the Hanover Theatre. The band is heralded for their note for note reproductions of great albums – if you don’t believe us, check out their website. The show is at 8PM – tickets start at $22.

Toby Keith at Comcast

It's the final show of the season at the Comcast Center in Mansfield and Country superstar Toby Keith is in town Saturday night. He’s riding high on his single “Drinks After Work,” which will be the title of his upcoming album. Kip Moore opens the evening at 7PM – Lawn tickets start at $34.50.

Back To School Fest

Also Saturday night, The Raven has the second annual “Back to School Fest” featuring a slew of area bands. Trophy Wives lead the charge along with several others. Doors at 5PM – Tickets only $8.

Black Joe Lewis

Here’s a real mid week treat - Tuesday September 24th Fete in Providence has Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears in the house. Lewis has been receiving critical praise for his new album, Electric Slave. The sound is James Brown on steroids … and we know, James Brown sounded like James Brown on steroids! The band blends rock, funk, R&B, with vintage soul and distorted guitars. The show starts at 9PM and tickets are $15 with local rockers The Silks opening.
