New concerts; Fourth of July eve, vacation

Fourth of July is Thursday, which means most people are off tonight. Will that make it a party night? Why not?

You can catch Sunset Happy Hour with Key West Express at 6 p.m. at the Bayfront Convention Center for its Night at the Keys party. It’ll be decorated like Mallory Square in Key West, Fla. A musician/juggler is there, and so is a hula-hoop artist. You will get leied, too.
Also tonight: Dock Boys at Rocco’s; This American Song, Matt Texter and the Upholsteres at Erie Ale House; Sam Hyman Band and Ruby Port at the UPMC Sunset Music Series on Beach 1; Main Street at Irish Cousins; Jackson Station (6 p.m) at Buffalo Wild Wings; Allman Brothers tribute band Blue Sky (with Ron Yarosz) at Crooked I; Musicisn Jam at Clancy’s; and Bob Ferragine (Fudge) at Colony.

Vacation looms for me starting tomorrow, so don’t expect to see any more blog updates until July 15. Soon hopefully, we’ll have word on some big new shows for the remodeled Erie Insurance Arena.
Until then:
