Top Ten Live Shows of the Week
Not much to say this week – except get out and “live” it up at a venue you near you:
1. Woodshed Red with Jason Bennett & Rich Currier, The Gold Room, Fri June 19 (8 pm, $15 adv, $20 day of show). If you haven’t seen Woodshed Red by now, you must be living under a rock! Super nice as well as super fun, the band plays two benefit shows this weekend. The Gold Room proceeds will go to support the Homes for All Veterans project of Rocky Mountain Human Services, while Sunday the band will play at the Paws for Celebration benefit for Safe Place for Pets at Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs, which takes place from 11 am to 6 pm. As if that wasn’t enough, they will also play the free First & Main Town Center summer concert series on Friday starting at 5 pm.
2. Harpeth Rising with The Mitugards, In Cahoots House Concerts (Manitou Springs), Fri June 19 (7 pm, $20 suggested donation). This talented string trio of young women from Louisville, KY will be playing an outdoor show at the home of the Weizeneckers following an opening set from our friends Deb and Chris Mitguard!
3. Idris Goodwin with DJ Gravity, Eros & the Eschaton, & DilesCielo, Ivywild School, Fri June 19 (8:30 pm, $8 adv, $10 day of show).
