Eight Great Things To Do This Weekend – 7/16/20
ONE : Broken Arrow performs the music of Neil Young, featuring both the rockin’ electric Crazy Horse tunes and the more acoustic, pedal steel driven country rock material. The band delivers these classic songs faithfully while taking them out on some jamming excursions and tastefully tweaking some of the arrangements.
Don’t miss your chance to see them live at Tupelo Music Hall’s 12th Annual Concert to Benefit The Center for Life Management Foundation. It’s all happening this Friday at 6 p.m. Click here for tickets and more information.
TWO: Join Tom Hoatson and The Traveling Newburys for some live beach music tonight at Plum Island Beach. Bring a chair, some friends and beverages while enjoying Hoatson’s blend of folk rock and Americana-style covers and originals.
You can make a reservation here.
FOUR: Join The Switchboard on Saturday, June 18 as they reopen for an exhibition of work by Jessica Lynne Furtado and Tina Gagnon.
Current artist-in-residence Tina Gagnon has transformed The Switchboard into a gallery and studio space for the month of June. Using colored pencil as her preferred medium, her drawings are exercises in intense observation and large measures of patience, which come alive after hundreds of hours of work building up layers of color.
Stop by this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 5 to 8 p.m. for this exciting exhibition. Also, learn more about free classes and workshops at the Switchboard website.
FIVE: This Saturday, Lowell Canalwaters Cleaners is hosting the Moody Street Cleanup. The Lowell Canalwaters Cleaners exists to aid in the protection, preservation and restoration of Lowell’s natural and historic waterways, and you can help the effort.
Join in this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Be sure to bring a mask and gloves!
SIX: With Lexington’s ACROSS network of paths and trails that covers over 30 miles, on-foot travelers will find it easy to navigate from the center of town to some of Lexington’s most prominent historical sites, conservation lands and hidden gems. Even if you’ve driven through Lexington before, you’ll get a whole new experience when you walk through its quaint side streets, open fields, idyllic farms and forests. The ACROSS network currently reaches points of interest like Minutemen National Historic Park and Buckman Tavern, and there are plans for further expansion.
SEVEN: This Sunday, visit Jocelyn’s Mediterranean Restaurant & Lounge for quality food and a live performance by Sunset Rhythm. Enjoy beautiful summer weather, great food and relaxing music at this Salem spot.
