The second annual The Town and The City Festival is in Lowell, Massachusetts this weekend, October 18 and 19. If last year’s festival is any indication, this year’s festival will be incredible.
Composed of mostly Boston-area artists, the lineup contains both well-known and up-and-coming artists. Spread across venues in downtown Lowell, there are artists that appeal to a myriad of tastes.
The Lowell Summer Music Series is bringing two-time Grammy® award winner Colbie Caillat & Gone West to the stage at Boarding House Park on Friday, July 12th. I do not know anything about her other than her name, so I look forward to getting to know a new artist under the stars!
Two veteran acts are joining forces to each present a full set at the Lowell Summer Music Series on Saturday, August 24th. Toad the Wet Sprocket and Big Head Todd and the Monsters is the newcomer; I made the mistake of not seeing Toad the last time because I went to a birthday party instead (I’ll never make that mistake again) and while I’ve seen Big Head Todd, I did not see last year’s show because I was living elsewhere (I won’t make that mistake again either).
An interesting new project, The Allman Betts Band, is coming to the Lowell Summer Music Series for the first time! Sons of Allman Brothers Band founders, they will appear on the Boarding House Park stage on Friday, June 14th! Both of their fathers appeared at the Series, so they are literally following in their fathers’ footsteps.
