So you want to go to Summer Fest, but have no idea what to see. Not to worry, here are a few suggestions on bands to see ...
1) Bob Dylan/Willie Nelson- July 1st 7:30 P.M. at Marcus Amphitheatre: Celebrate 4th of July a little early with two of America’s greatest musicians.
2) Flogging Molly- July 4th 10:00 P.M. at Miller Lite Oasis: Ring in Independence Day with a late night concert from the best Irish punk band since the Pogues.
3) Elvis Costello and the Imposters-July 5th 9:00 P.M. at M&I Classic Rock Stage: Best known for his two records, My Aim is True and This Year’s Model, that were released between the transition from Punk to New Wave, Costello is now trying his hand at folk music with a Southern Gothic theme.
4) Joan Jett and the Black Hearts-June 30th 9:30 P.M. at M&I Classic Rock Stage: The former Runaway has been going solo since 1981
