The Music of Second Saturdays

This past Saturday I set out from my midtown abode to explore Second Saturdays Art Walk in Midtown. It's always nice to walk around with thousands of strangers and explore all that Midtown has to offer. What I found interesting this time out was all the live music that seemed to be everywhere. So I thought I would share...

This performance was completely impromptu. It was a promotion for an upcoming event at Harlows nightclub entitled 'HAIR - a tribal rock concert'. So if your a hippie or just a fan of the musical then check it out July 16th at 7pm.

Barber's Shop is a must stop for me. As an old soul I love the vintage feel of this automotive shop. The walls of the shop are littered with old 'art'...vintage signs, car parts and accessories. They usually have a down home rock-a-billy band playing and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer flowing. Barber's has been in business for 29 years, specializing in Alfa Romeo and other vintage European sports cars. They also restore and sell vintage Vespas as well as new scooters. check them out at 18th and L.

A totally random occurrence as I walked through the streets. This little group was content just jamming to whatever moved them. They had a nice little crowd gathered around them with one gentleman in a motorized wheelchair with a 30 pack of natural light in his basket. That is what's so fun about Midtown and Second Saturdays. You just never know what or who you'll run into. If you haven't been, or haven't been for a while check it out next month.
