With the summer music series for cities and towns now also coming to a close, there are a couple of shows that I am planning to attend this week that are worth mentioning. On Thursday, the Stearns Square Free Concert series in Springfield Ma will feature The Smithereens. The 80s alternative Rock and Roll band will be the headliner for the final performance of this fun weekly concert series.
This Saturday, “The River 92.5” radio station will hold its annual Riverfront Music Festival in Newburyport Mass. Toad and the Wet Sprocket will be the Headliner for this year's show. There will also be an additional four very good acts that will also be performing. Guests are encouraged to get there early for this huge end of the summer event. Don’t forget your beach blankets & chairs for a day of great live music and a super Labor Day Weekend show!
