Hello, last days of August.
I won’t be around, but I highly recommend seeing In Tall Buildings on Thursday, The Square Affair on Friday, and Save the Clocktower on Saturday. Â Three days of solid shows by local bands. Â What isn’t to love?
Also, don’t forget that the North Coast Music Festival is going on this weekend, the 2nd to the 4th, in Union Park. Â Three day passes are sold out, but single day tickets are still available.
