We’re trying something a little different with our events. We still have our events calendar and we invite you to add your listings. In addition, we will share a list of hand picked events that we think are worth your time. Let’s go.

Rich Aucoin + Taylor Knox
7:00 pm – Mills Hardware
Don’t miss your chance to see one of the most entertaining solo performers this country has to offer. That’s not a hyperbole. Rich Aucoin is like a rain shower of glitter under a rainbow while you are surrounded by warmth and friends. There is a parachute.. remember elementary school? If you like upbeat indie pop music and good times you will want to go to this.
