Top Weekend Events June 3rd – 5th

Can you believe it’s actually Wednesday again?  Memorial Day Weekend just absolutely blew by.

If you look at this upcoming weekend’s top events list, one thing is very apparent.  Summer concert season is upon us!  People want to go hear live music!

With the exception of the Memorial Golf Tournament (which was also on last week’s list), the musical genre runs from pop to country to jam bands to alternative.  People want it all!

Brett Dennen is an up and coming folk/pop singer from Northern Cali.  His music has been featured on a number of television shows including: Roadtrip Nation on PBS, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Scrubs and The Unit.  His fourth album was just released in April.  Keep an eye on this guy, his celebrity is about to sky rocket.

For your other fairly new artist on the list, there is The Script and Adele.  The Script will be playing in Central Park this weekend and already has an exceptionally loyal fan base.   They are an Irish indie rock band.  Their music has been featured on video games and TV shows like 90210, Ghost Whisperer, The Hills, East Enders and The Vampire Diaries.  All of those shows are incredibly popular with the teen/early 20’s crowd.  And, as if you didn’t already know, Adele tickets are hot, hot hot!!!  Any remaining available tickets to her shows shoot up in price very quickly.  Her rise in fame in the US is correlated very closely with her 2008 appearance on Saturday Night Live.  She had already attracted much attention in her home nation of Britan. She has gained much acclaim and recognition both commercially and critically.  She is another to keep your eye on very closely.

Fan’s perennial favorites; U2, Phish, and Kenny Chesney show up again on this list as they so often have in the past.

New Kids on the Block featuring Back Street Boys (NKOTBBSB) finally makes their first appearance on this list with their Boston show.  The 80’s boy band teamed up with the 90’s boy band in a cross country, many stop tour that is very popular with ladies of those generations.  Tickets can still be found for reasonable prices.

Top Weekend Events – May 27 – May 30

Here are your top weekend events for this upcoming Memorial Weekend. There are a number of notable events going on this weekend which draw a lot of attention which are not surprisingly showing up on the list below.

The Indianapolis 500 is an annual event and is considered one of the three most significant motorsports events (others include the Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 hours of Le Mans) in the world and typically fills every seat and infield.  The race consists of 200 laps and 500 miles and the ultimate goal of the racers is to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport, but winning this race and the other two.

Of course the NBA Playoffs are still going on.  The Dallas Mavericks showed the OKC Thunder who’s boss and made quick work on them,  4 -1.  The Chicago Bulls are struggling against the Heat.  MVP, Derrick Rose, just can’t bring the team a W against forces like James, Wade and Bosh.  This is a do or die game for the Bulls.

Sasquatch! Music Festival in Washington is a huge, 3-day, outdoor event that will feature amazing acts such as Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Wilco and many, many others.

The Memorial Golf Tournament is a PGA Tournament founded by master golfer, Jack Nicklaus and held in Columbus, Nicklaus’ home town.  Tiger Woods has the most victories under his belt in this tournament, having won four times.  But he’s currently down with a unexplained leg injury.

Holding the top spot on the list this weekend is the jam band, Phish.  They’re the Grateful Dead of this generation.

Bruno Mars shows up a couple of times on the list.  His fun, quirky songs like “Just the Way you Are” and “The Lazy Song” are catchy with many age groups.  He’s not just a slacker with a good voice though.  Did you know he also wrote the hooks for the songs “Nothin’ on You” by B.o.B, and “Billionaire” byTravie McCoy. He also co-wrote the hits “Right Round” by Flo Rida featuring Kesha, “Wavin’ Flag” by K’naan, and “Fuck You!” by Cee Lo Green.  Do not underestimate this guy.

So there you have it, the top events going on this Memorial Day Weekend.  Have fun and be safe!
