This week: fireworks and outdoor concerts


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

If you are still glowing from the Wilco concert you could practically live at the Bayfront Stage this week with the Hairball concert on Tuesday, the Fourth Fest on Wednesday, and Bridge Fest on Saturday with a special extra day of Bridge Fest featuring Trampled by Turtles on Sunday to raise money for flood relief.

If you are looking for an alternative to Bayfront this Fourth of July you could head up the shore to Two Harbors where the Two Harbors City Band has its traditional July Fourth concert as well as performing Thursdays during the summer.

This is also the closing weekend for Superior Story, a locally written and produced comedy playing at the Play Ground.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!`

And, by the way, this calendar editor is going to be in infrequent contact with the internet for a few weeks, so if you have events you want to publicize for July I kindly suggest you submit them now.

An update on BradFest, coming up Aug. 3-4: For the third-annual festival honoring Brad Rozman the venue is switching to the Lake County Fairgrounds in Two Harbors, which will allow for onsite camping, an indoor stage in case of rain and plenty of parking. Acclaimed alternative rock veterans Cracker and Minneapolis-based punk-pop darlings Sick of Sarah head the lineup. Other notable acts include Rhymesayers Entertainment hip-hop artist Toki Wright, venerable AmRep noise rockers Hammerhead, and reggae-tinged indie post-punkers Sweet Ray Laurel, as well as many talents from around the region. bradfest.org

The Free Range Film Festival released its trailer this week. It's pretty sweet.

We saw Martin Sexton do a show at Winnepeg, and for most of the set he had this Nashville drawl, then suddenly he cleared his voice and said, 'Aw heck, I don't really have a southern accent, I'm from New Jersey!' He was keeping it real.
