Another steamy weekend in the LaX as summer starts to wind down. VERY excited about the Stone Temple Pilots show at Copeland Park on Saturday, September 17th. In case you missed it, tickets are on sale NOW. Buy yours here!

This weekend, I’ve got the Rock Stop at Hillbilly’s Bar & Grill on French Island today from 4-5:35pm with Twisted Tea. Stop by & sign up for the bike! Find all the info & a complete list of Rock Stops here.

Then on Saturday, the wife & I are headed to Mad-town for this year’s Bacon & Brews festival!!! Can’t wait!

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here’s a few suggestions:

TONIGHT! Get to the Popcorn Tavern for some killer music courtesy of Droids Attack, Thundergoat, & Midwest Voltage!

On Saturday, stop by a legendary institution in this community for their 40th Anniversary Party! Dave’s Guitar Shop is turning the big 4-0 & they are celebrating with an incredible day of special guest, giveaways, & sales!

On Saturday night, make your way to Barre Mills for night number TWO of Fox Fest! (The Weathered Pigs play Friday night). Our buddies in the Caminos will hit the stage at 7pm for a night of all your favorite rock & roll tunes.
