Music to Look Forward to This Summer in South Florida
That sweat on your back and the afternoon thunderstorm can only mean one thing: Spring is over. With summer upon us, it's time to look at what music awaits as you dodge mosquitos and floss the mango rind from your teeth.
As always, this is one writer's perspective on which South Florida musical events you should be most excited for in the coming months. If you're looking for classical music concerts hitting Boise, you must look elsewhere, my friend.
This is a list for music lovers of a particular taste in Broward and Palm Beach counties (or those in Miami-Dade or Monroe counties with gas money). Without further ado, let's dig those summer tunes.
June 18 - Grizzly Bear perform at the Fillmore - Will be interesting to see how much energy this Brooklyn dream-rock act brings, as their music is reminiscent of a soothing lullaby.
June 25 - John Legend releases new album, Love in the Future. Five years after his last album, and months after his triumphant contribution to the Django Unchained soundtrack, Legend returns with guests Kanye West, Q-Tip, and Rick Ross.
June 26 - Americanara Music Festival at Cruzan Amphitheatre - Even if you're not into music festivals, it's hard not to be a fan of American songwriters and resist a tour that features Bob Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, and Bob Weir, especially with tickets starting at only $25.
