Repeat After Us: I Resolve To Go See More Live Music in 2015!

The week after New Year’s is generally a slow time for the local music scene, but we expect big things out of 2015.  Let’s all commit to doing our part to keep live music front and center this year!  Some options to get you started can be found below. And if you are so inclined, we’d appreciate your vote for the MeadowGrass Music Festival as Best Local Festival in the Gazette’s Best of Awards.

1.  Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore, Black Forest Community Center, Fri Jan 9 (7 pm, $5 BRAS members/students, $10 general public).  The Black Rose Acoustic Society starts the new year off right with the first Open Stage of 2015, headlined by the fabulous duo Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore.  Mollie & Rich are promoting their latest album Love Runner, which they describe as “a glorious mix of contemporary folk, powerhouse gospel, funky dance music and everything in between.” Read more
