As your mother likely scolded, “it’s nice outside — what are you doing in the house?”
Don’t disappoint your mother.
Summer’s coming, and once again, there will be no shortage of outdoor live music throughout the Fox Valley to meet just about every taste. The region will feature several series in addition to weekly community band engagements that add up to a full calendar before we factor in our festivals and one-night gigs.
Plan ahead and close the door behind you already — do you think we’re air conditioning the outside?
