Love live music? Us too, which is why we’re all fired up over what we’ve got cooking next month.

Back by Popular Demand: BBC Acoustic Lounge

Hollis Greene, one half of the awesomely-talented duo Macalla, is back in October with the BBC Acoustic Lounge. With Plymouth a hotbed of gifted musicians, Hollis came up with the idea of creating a kind of salon for musicians at our downtown Plymouth location last year. Part open mic night/part meeting of the minds, the weekly event became quickly became the hottest ticket in town when it launched last October.

This year will feature the same basic concept. Musicians interested in performing need to contact Hollis who will be vetting perspective acts. If you’d like to perform, plan on bringing your A game and your creativity. Not only do musicians need to prove they’re up to snuff, they need to have their own original music at the ready. Acoustic Lounge is all about the celebration of original songs; no cover tunes allowed!

The Details:

What: BBC Acoustic Lounge
When: Monday Nights beginning on October 2nd
Where: British Beer Company, 6 Middle Street, Plymouth

The 12th Annual Lennon Fest

Hey dude, you say you want a revolution? Then come together and twist and shout at Strawberry Field.

If you’re a big fan of the Fab Four, you’re probably sensing a Beatles’ theme by now. You are wise.

Walrus Gumboot, the region’s brilliant Beatles cover band, returns to Strawberry Field in Falmouth Heights for Lennon Fest. Now in its 12th year, Lennon Fest pairs live music with an all-around good time for everyone from Beatles aficionados to families with young children.

There’s the music which, if you close your eyes, will have you thinking the Fab Four has been reincarnated – take a listen here – plus stuff for kids like face painting and a moonwalk.  There’s the ocean view – the beach is right across the street – and food too: hot dogs, hamburgers and sausage subs. There’s also a feel-good factor with all proceeds from the fest donated to the Falmouth Service Center.

What’s not to love?
