We have another jam-packed week of entertainment in the capital city ahead of us. From fiddle festivals to 1950s throwback concerts, there should be something for everybody out there this week.
Here’s a look at what we found.
Open jam at Area 23 will kick off at 7 p.m. To take part in this free jam session, just show up and be ready to rock. They have instruments there for you to use, so you don’t need to bring anything.
Viva and Paul Bourgelais will perform at Hermanos Cocina Mexicana at 6:30 p.m. There’s no cover charge, you just have to order something.
Dopamine will lift your spirits at Penuche’s starting about 9 p.m. Expect to pay a $3 cover charge.

Evidence Lies will take the stage at Area 23 at about 8:30 p.m.
The Natalie Turgeon Duo will play at Makris Lobster & Steak House at 8 p.m. The music should help drown out the sound of cracking shells.
