Who? Big Thief

When? 6:45 PM

Where? Johnson Control’s World Stage

Big Thief is on tour in support of their newest album Capacity from June 9 which has already received a lot of attention from big names in music such as Stereogum and Pitchfork. Adrianne Lenker’s voice is stunning and delicate as she croons personal lyrics that deal with love, friendship, and the like. You will definitely want to get in on this intimate folk-rock show.

Who? The Bright Light Social Hour

When? 8 PM

Where? Johnson Control’s World Stage

The Bright Light Social Hour is an up and coming band from Austin, Texas. They have managed to craft a sound that is gritty with driving rock beats while still psychedelic and earthy and even dance-y at times. The Bright Light Social Hour are true pros at making these seemingly non-coherent elements blend together. Check out their set at Summerfest.

Who? Ziggy Marley

When? 9:30 PM

Where? Harley-Davidson Roadhouse

You can’t go wrong with Ziggy Marley. With 16 albums, 8 Grammy awards, and an Emmy credit, we can be sure Ziggy Marley has been busy during his 3 decade long career. His reggae music is inspirational and positive and his show will never disappoint.

Enjoy your holiday weekend!
