1. FEEL GOOD ABOUT MUSIC
The second annual Baldapalooza is a fundraiser for Camp Rainbow Gold. It’s hard to think of a more noble cause. But don’t attend just because of charity. Go because of the wide variety of music, especially terrific country singer Ashley Monroe, who has a personal connection to the event. (I know her video above isn't exactly "family-friendly," but it sure is fun.)
2. BUY SOME ART
Or don’t. Either way, you’ll have a relaxing time browsing the 60th annual Art in the Park all weekend at Julia Davis Park.
5. BE INDIE
Nashville trio Colony House includes two sons of Christian singer Steven Curtis Chapman, but his boys are taking a different musical path. The alt-rockers will perform a free show at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5, at the Record Exchange (free beer!) and a ticketed full show later that night at Neurolux.
