Once again, Concord has a jam-packed schedule of local music to be heard all over the city.
And once again, we found out about as many shows as we could to pass along all that juicy info to you.
Here’s a sampling:
At Penuche’s, there will be a mini festival of sorts, with Wrongtown Presents: Rippin’ E Brakes, Beechwood and Tough Guy. Bands generally go on about 9 p.m., and there’s a cover charge that’s usually $3 but can vary slightly, so bring some cash.
At True Brew Barista, right across Bicentennial Square from The Nooch, Dusty Gray will be on hand playing all originals, as is the case just about every Thursday at True Brew.
If you head south down Main Street and hang a left onto Hills Avenue, stop into Hermanos Cocina Mexicana to hear the jazzy stylings of Mike Morris, a regular at Hermanos. He’ll start around 6:30 p.m.
The Capitol Center for the Arts will have a free show featuring Les Violons Du Roy, a group that specializes in the vast repertoire of music for chamber orchestra, performed in the stylistic manner most appropriate to each era. The show, which starts at 7:30 p.m., is free but requires a ticket, which you can get at ccanh.com.
Start your weekend off right with some lobsters – and some music – at Makris Lobster & Steak House, where Sum X’s 4 will take the stage at 8 p.m.
On the other side of town, Area 23 will welcome Scalawag, who will begin around 7.
At True Brew, Dressed for the Occasion will rock the house with their genre-transcending sound.
The Concord City Auditorium has a free show with Bostonian Lori Diamond and New Yorker Fred Abatelli, joined by Kim Jennings, a folk songstress with an Indie edge. That show starts at 7:30.
And the Cap Center will have Home Free playing at 8. Tickets are $27 to $44.50 and can be bought online.
Head back over to Hermanos for some more jazz, this time courtesy of Joel Cage, another regular performer at the Mexican restaurant.
Then, stop at Area 23 to check out Supernothing.
Finally, cap off the night with a trip back to everyone’s favorite underground bar, Penuche’s, to listen to what Daemon Chili has to offer. You really can’t go wrong with all these great shows!
