Now that the holiday weekend is over, live music is fully back on a roll. One of our favorite venues, The EARL, celebrates its 12th anniversary with a weekend of amazing shows, and we fully recommend that you stop by and raise a glass in the great club’s honor. And by the looks of the huge slew of on sales, fall is in sight!

Saturday, July 9 – Noot D’Noot at The EARL

Sunday, July 10 – Motley Crue at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood
It seems strange that New York Dolls, the band that launched a thousand genres, should be opening for two bands (Motley Crue and Poison) that owe their sound and style to the originators of catchy clashing guitar licks and fellas in makeup. But it’s nice to see Sylvain Sylvain and David Johansen out and about anyway.
