Weekend Ideas: August 28, 2015


Lake Street Dive continue to branch out in popularity, as the bubbly New England Conservatory-bred quartet plays Lowell’s Summer Music series at Boarding House Park on Friday and headlines the Amourasaurus! festival at the Pines Theater in Northampton on Sunday. Yet the weirdest coup for the jazz-pop group comes next month when its powerhouse singer Rachael Price steps into the Grace Slick role in a Hot Tuna-led Jefferson Airplane tribute at Virginia’s Lockn’ Festival. Speaking of striking singers, this Friday as well, the Sinclair hosts four distinctive local bands in the glammy Sidewalk Driver, the soulful Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents, recent Improper cover star Ruby Rose Fox and rock outfit the Lights Out (who now ironically string LED-light chains on their instruments). And you can also watch all of those groups joining for this video of “Chain of Fools.”

Melissa Etheridge moves into Boarding House Park with her charismatic rock on Saturday and Northampton’s feisty, rising indie-rockers Speedy Ortiz change things up in playing Sunday afternoon aboard the Provincetown II’s Rock and Blues Concert Cruise on Boston Harbor, leaving from the Seaport World Trade Center.
