Today we have to recommend checking out the 90's era band 311 at the Maine State Pier. 311 still puts on high energy groovin shows and should not be missed. Summer Saturday's in Deering Oaks Park means the Farmer's Market is up and running. Not only is the venue beautiful, but so are the the farm fresh and mostly organic Fruits, veggies and meats.
Today's recommendation is a no-brainer. Go see Ziggy Marley at Aura tonight. Bob Marley's son has been making great music for decades and really puts on a hell of a show.
An open mind naturally attracts inspiration. Ziggy Marley remains receptive to the countless muses and magnetic flurries of creativity surrounding him on his musical journey. In 2014, he fully embraced a distinct freedom while working on his fifth solo offering Fly Rasta—which received the 2015 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Reggae Album.” Maintaining that mindset, he went one step further on his 2016 self-titled sixth full-length album, for which Marley was just awarded his 8th GRAMMY®.
